03 January 2014, 17:05
Endebes - Endebes MP Robert Pukose has faulted the Jubilee government for refusing to accept constructive criticism.
Speaking in his constituency, Pukose said that it was absurd that political leaders who are criticising the government are being condemned.
“We leaders from Jubilee coalition want the government to succeed and when we try to correct, some people think that we want to cripple the government, we want to be in government for many years to enable us accomplish our plans,” he said.
He said that the recent appointments by the president of parastatal heads has painted bad image of the government as majority of Kenyans have shown concerns that needs to be addressed.
"I was not impressed by the recycling of the leaders that have worked for the government since independence," said Pukose, adding that the country has skilled and experienced youth who need to be utilized for the betterment of the country.
He pointed out that when the parliament resumes, the MPs will discuss the issue so as to allow the government work without turbulence. Pukose (URP) further warned Kapenguria MP Samuel Moroto for inciting his constituents to invade Chepchoina land meant for settlement of squatters from Endebes constituency.
He said that the issue could raise tension in the volatile area adding that only residents from Trans Nzoia County would be accommodated.
“You cannot move to other constituency to claim land and yet the people from area are squatters, we will not accept that,” he said.
He also took issue with Trans Nzoia county governor Patrick Khaemba for side-lining leaders from the county saying that the issue has crippled development in the county.
“We request the governor to heed to the call of converging a meeting with other leaders,” he said.
He said that the county has no plans for investors adding that the county was positioned last out of 47 counties saying that it is unacceptable equally the county has many resources.
