Khaniri:Pulling out of Jubilee Govt is long overdue

12 May 2014, 19:15 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Vihiga senator George Khaniri has said that the pulling out of Jubilee government by the Amani coalition is long overdue because western region has not benefited from the botched coalition.

Khaniri said that UDF leader Musalia Mudavadi can only make impact in the region and in the country’s politics if at all he will join other leaders from the entire western region and form a formidable coalition that will eventually deliver the much desired fruits.

“Mudavadi can only get something tangible in the Kenyan politics if he will join former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, so that together they can work together. Otherwise this region will continually wallow in the dark,” said Khaniri.    

He spoke on Sunday at Mukuli Salvation Army church in Vihiga constituency, where he led in a fund raising to help develop the church.

He was accompanied by Speaker of the Vihiga County assembly Daniel Chitwa, Wamuluma/Lugaga ward rep Wilberforce Kitiezo, among other leaders.

He said this even as he asked leaders from the region to concentrate on development of the region other than often politicking.

Khaniri said that the region was lagging behind because most leaders had lacked development related visions for it and thus concentrated on unrewarding politics.

“Leaders should know that the citizens will hold them accountable for anything that they are doing. It is time that they come out together and defend the region for its better, other than creating political divides,” said Khaniri.

Khaniri said that as the senator of the region he was committed to helping the region to realise its potential and help alleviate the high levels of poverty that characterise the daily lives of the individuals.

“Leaders from the region must know that our people will not in the long run eat politics, but they can only benefit from development,” he said.

Khaniri said that he was working on mechanisms to have capacity building in the county to educate the women and the youths on the ways to maximise the various grants offered by the government.

He said that most people from the region have in the past feared taking loans and grants because of the fines imposed on them for not paying, but encouraged the groups to apply for the Uwezo Fund.

Chitwa said that the county assembly was on course in formulating laws that will help the region to develop.

He said that he had cut short his recess on two different occasions so that they can pass bills that will benefit the people.

“The county assembly is dedicated towards making sure that the region attains the much needed development. We want our people to be able to feel the impact of devolution on the ground,” he said.
