Don’t im­pose can­di­date on Coast re­gion vot­ers, MP Awiti tells Cord co-prin­ci­pals

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Nyali MP Hezron Awiti urged Cord co-prin­ci­pals to al­low vot­ers them­selves to de­cide the best can­di­date for Mom­basa gover­nor.

He said on Satur­day some lead­ers, who were im­posed on peo­ple, have sti­fled de­vel­op­ment. Awiti urged Raila Odinga (ODM), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses We­tang’ula (Ford Kenya) to let democ­racy pre­vail. He ex­pressed con­fi­dence he will be elected be­cause “he is best placed to steer the county to greater heights.”

Awiti spoke in Mam­aba Vil­lage to Luhya lead­ers from all the six Mom­basa con­stituen­cies. He said the county lead­er­ship needs to be ne­go­ti­ated by com­mu­ni­ties to en­sure an all-in­clu­sive ad­min­is­tra­tion. Awiti said the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion has dis­crim­i­nated against some com­mu­ni­ties. He urged vot­ers to con­sider hope­fuls’ cred­i­bil­ity.
