Stop con­fus­ing the com­mu­nity, Gov­er­nor Roba told

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Man­dera Gov­er­nor Ali Roba has been urged to stop con­fus­ing the Garre com­mu­nity by say­ing he will run in next year’s elec­tion. Hassan Os­man, who has been nom­i­nated by the Garre Coun­cil of El­ders to con­test for sen­a­tor, said it is un­for­tu­nate to see Roba, a prod­uct of ne­go­ti­ated democ­racy, crit­i­cis­ing the same process and el­ders who brought him to power. He said the same el­ders Roba is try­ing to defy are the ones who con­vinced his op­po­nent Ab­dikadir Ab­dul­lahi to step aside. Roba has dis­missed the el­ders’ decision to bar him from con­test­ing. Os­man said some in­di­vid­u­als are mis­lead­ing and mis-ad­vis­ing him. He said they will not suc­ceed in di­vid­ing the com­mu­nity. “As a com­mu­nity, we are in ju­bilee to stay. This is be­cause the Ju­bilee govern­ment has done a lot for our county and peo­ple af­ter be­ing marginalised for decades,” Os­man said.
