Kitale - President Uhuru Kenyatta’s political advisor, Joshua Kuttuny, on Wednesday said that soon he will convene a meeting with young politicians from North Rift region to end what he dubbed as ‘pulpit outpouring of grievances’ that he said could taint the image of the government.
Addressing residents of Kaplamai Ward in Cherangany constituency, Trans Nzoia County, Kuttuny said that it is only through dialogue that the concerns of local politicians can be addressed.
“We don’t want to engage in exchange of words which at the end will not solve anything. We want to address problems the politicians are raising through dialogue as pulpit airing of issues could taint the image of the government,” said Kuttuny.
He added, “We have a problem resolution mechanism within the government. You don’t need to shout, we are ready to discuss cordially for the betterment of peace and development in the country as Jubilee government is an inclusive government and not a one man show,” he opined, saying that the Jubilee government will soon roll out numerous projects across the country, an initiative that he said will help in reducing unemployment among youth and thus reduce poverty.
“We are complaining about high rate of unemployment among the youth. Let me assure you things are cooking and soon most of you will be absorbed into job market,” he said.
Kuttuny further refuted claims that the government has gone against its promises by employing retirees and said that most of the youths were recently employed by the government yet no one is talking about it.
“Many youths are working with President, including me. Why complain when few ‘wazees’ are given the opportunity to serve Kenyans?” he posed.
On the allegations that other regions were sidelined in the recent appointments to public officer, Kuttuny hinted that the New Ford Kenya party leader Eugene Wamalwa and others will soon be appointed to public offices.
Additionally, kuttuny urged County governments to incorporate opinions of other leaders within their counties.
He said that engaging other leaders would help manage conflicts being at the County level.
“We want governors to start involving other leaders in the management of the counties as wrangles and complaints being raised might cripple development projects in the counties,” added the Cherangany MP.
