Use­less, un­eth­i­cal MCAs should be kicked out in polls

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

They proudly re­fer to them­selves as wa­heshimiwa or hon­ourable MCAs. But they no longer de­serve that ti­tle; they are ab­so­lute ly hor­ri­ble set of non­starters, on grounds of moral­ity and in­tegrity. We don’t have to of­fer an apol­ogy for stat­ing that. In fact, they owe us all an apol­ogy. They are a shame to us! How many times have they dis­rupted House busi­ness on the premise of dif­fer­ences with the gov­er­nors? How many times have they been ac­cused of se­ri­ous fraud­u­lent ac­tiv­i­ties or silly bench­mark­ing trips abroad? Re­cently two Kisii MCAs were caught in a com­pro­mis­ing sit­u­a­tion with two school­girls. Do we know why we have them in those po­si­tions? We erred in 2013 by elect­ing them in a “small po­si­tion that didn’t mean much”. This is a mis­take we must not re­peat in 2017. We must all take it upon our­selves to vote them out and elect sober lead­ers.
