Kega further said that the CS is inaccessible, unapproachable and that MPs have not managed to meet him despite their efforts to to do.

“The docket being held by Wario entails youth matters but the Minister has not being engaging the youth. He is inaccessible and has not even been asking for funds. Wario has done absolutely nothing since 2013,” Kega asserted

He accused the Minister of failing the government in development agendas.

“Wario has disappointed the youth of this country since no progress has been registered in his docket. The President should sack him immediately and bring in a more competent person,” he said.

Kega made the remarks after launching a sports tournament for his constituency at Narumoru stadium.

“We shall support youth activities particularly sports. Sporting activities bring integration and is the reason we are here today despite being from different political parties,” said the Club’s captain, Victor Munyaka.

He said similar tournaments will be launched in other constituencies.

The club’s chairman, MP Neto said the youthful MPs will work and raise issues that are good for the country.
