Jirongo defends non performing MPs

20 February 2012, 12:58 Alloys Musyoka

A presidential aspirant Cyrus Jirongo has defended non-performing members of parliament and put the blame to the two principals whom he said are the controller in distribution of resources of the country.

The Lugari Member of Parliament said that members of parliament who have never delivered good services to their electorate should not be blamed.

“Members of parliament can be good performers but when the president is not providing the necessary resources to them they can do nothing. It is like today the two principals are directing resources to their regions only,” he noted.

He said Kenyans should this round election elect a president who will be able to manage resource of the country by fairly distributing them unlike the current top leaders whom he blamed for directing most of the country’s resources to their regions.

Jirongo who is contesting for presidential candidate on United Republican Party urged political leaders in Coast region to unite instead of playing political blame game.

He said their unity will lead them to vote for good president from a newly formed party URP which he noted would bring change to the country’s long economic, political and social problems.

Speaking at Kijiwetanga village in Malindi at the former Malindi Mayors’ home where he addressed residents on Friday Jirongo added that the Kenyans needed a party where there is no tribalism, nepotism, discrimination to any social group and greed among other issues which have affected the country for many years since independence.

 “If we are led by parties encouraging nepotism, greed and tribalism then we are going no where. We need to eye on a party that such issues have no rooms and that is URP,” he urged residents.

He was accompanied by former Malindi Mayor Kazungu Diwani, former Tana-River MP Mohamed Galgalo and former Malindi constituency chair lady Elizabeth Muthoka alias Ocampo six among other political leaders.

Coast province and Western, he said are sharing the same problems for being discriminated by pasts and current governments and that they should unite and support URP Presidential contestant which he said will for the next government.

“After Jomo Kenyatta, Arap Moi, Mwai Kibaki and now the two principal this areas and even many Kenyans have never benefitted from voting for leaders in this country. That why we decided to unite and support one candidate after nomination whom we can trust to help Kenyans,” he asserted.
