27 August 2012, 13:32
Mzalendo Saba Saba party Rift Valley chairman Kimani Ngunjiri has cautioned citizens against fake N.G.O.s and activists that have come up to confuse citizens in the next general elections.
Speaking in a meeting during the official opening of the party’s offices held in Burnt Forest town, Kimani condemned politicians who are here to confuse right thinking citizens from practicing their democratic rights and instead clasp them in a political confusion.
Accompanied by Kikuyu elders in the region and other party officials, Kimani said that the country needs patriotic drivers who listen to what Kenyans want to reach it to the desired levels. “Coalitions are not made in the offices but in grassroots levels. There is no way you can own and decide what the ordinary citizen wants while you do not even feel their pulse.
He also condemned drunkenness among the youths saying that they cannot rule this country in their drunken stupor. “You always tell the elderly to go home and leave power to you, but do you really think we can leave this country to you while you are drunk? We are also patriotic like you” he restated
On his part, the party’s Secretary Jimmy Kuria cautioned Kenyans from being misled saying that no party is greater than the other currently. “We are as good as ODM, PNU and other parties. We are only different in our manifestos, because Mzalendo Saba Saba’s party will include citizens’ contribution and views of what they want and what they need”
Another official Stephen Gathuo condemned usage of public money in buying campaign equipments rather than help the ordinary Mwananchi and get the votes in good heart. “You do not have to come here with a Helicopter to hunt for votes. Help me with that money instead and I will give you my vote. If you use it like that, what about when you get to the office?” he asked.
Mzalendo Saba Saba, a recovering political party that has over 58,000 excluding its expected recruitment and which seems popular among the elderly from the attendance, has gone through tough reforms initiated by its founder Kenneth Matiba. It has offices 48 headquarters countrywide.
