Says gov­er­nor should not lec­ture lead­ers over the North­ern Col­lec­tor Tun­nel

Kigumo MP Jam­leck Ka­mau has urged Mu­rang’a Gov­er­nor Mwangi Wairia to keep off other lead­ers’ af­fairs and stop or­der­ing them around.

He said Wairia should stop be­ing “dic­ta­to­rial” and stick to his man­date as gov­er­nor.

“In Mu­rang’a, we do not want a pre­fect to or­der us around be­cause we all are elected by the peo­ple and must stick to serv­ing them the best way we can,” Ka­mau said.

He was re­fer­ring to the gov­er­nor’s re­marks that Mu­rang’a MPs give their in­put on the North­ern Col­lec­tor Tun­nel project.

“I want MPs Jam­leck Ka­mau, Irungu Kang’ata, Tyrus Ngahu and Peter Ka­mande to state their po­si­tion on the is­sue so we know what they think of the Ju­bilee govern­ment,” Wairia said.

The tun­nel will col­lect wa­ter from Makom­boki for use in Nairobi.

Ka­mau said, “The gov­er­nor should not try to por­tray him­self as the per­fect one be­cause we as lead­ers must take into con­sid­er­a­tion all as­pects of the tun­nel be­fore we ad­dress the pub­lic. That is what shows ma­tu­rity and sober­ness in pol­i­tics.”

The gov­er­nor as­pi­rant urged lead­ers not to mix pol­i­tics with the wa­ter is­sue so they get a last­ing so­lu­tion to Mu­rang’a res­i­dents’ prob­lems.
