Sup­port the Ju­bilee Party to en­joy the fruits of be­ing in gov­ern­ment, Fafi MP Elias Bashir has urged pas­toral­ists com­mu­ni­ties. He said only JP will unite all the Kenyan com­mu­ni­ties and meet their needs.

“Our fo­cus as pas­toral­ists is to be in gov­ern­ment and en­joy de­vel­op­ment, rather than en­gag­ing in cheap pol­i­tics,” Bashir said. He spoke at Lkuroto Pri­mary School, Sam­buru Cen­tral sub­county.

Bashir led the par­lia­men­tary de­fence and for­eign af­fairs com­mit­tees to col­lect views on land. “Pas­toral­ists face a lot of prob­lems. You walk long dis­tances in search of wa­ter and pas­ture. You should re­main in Ju­bilee for you to start en­joy­ing the fruits of gov­ern­ment,” he urged.

Bashir said North­east­ern res­i­dents in Isi­olo, Man­dera, Marsabit, Moyale and Sam­buru coun­ties should not be mis­led in to fol­low­ing neigh­bour­ing coun­ties, as those have dif­fer­ent in­ter­ests.

REG­IS­TER AND VOTE

He said Ju­bilee has al­ready formed a gov­ern­ment and there are no plans to form another. Those in the house do not feel the rain, Bashir told res­i­dents. “If you are in your own house, you don’t go look­ing for another,” he said.

The leg­is­la­tor urged res­i­dents to reg­is­ter as vot­ers and vote on Elec­tion Day as that is the only way of en­sur­ing they will be well rep­re­sented.

Bashir said they should not let them­selves be di­vided but re­main firmly be­hind Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Deputy Pres­i­dent William Ruto.
