Othaya Parliamentary aspirant Esau Kioni has urged voters to elect leaders of integrity and not to be swayed by party euphoria.
Kioni who is vying for the MP seat on a DP Party ticket said the voters should vet all the aspiring candidates before electing them but not elect leaders based on their party affiliations.
Speaking in Othaya, Kioni said leadership should not be based on party membership but the integrity of a person.
“I want the people of Othaya and other areas to vet leaders and ensure he or she is the right person for a certain seat. We should not go by euphoria of parties,” warned Kioni who is the DP party Nyeri County chairman.
He urged leaders not to be tribal but respect the recent pact which was signed by various parties.
Kioni at the same time urged eligible people to turn up in large numbers and register as voters in order to change the country by electing the best qualified leaders.
He added that by electing good leaders, the economy of the area will rise and more jobs created.
