Bungoma - A group of Human Rights and Civil Service have called on both Bungoma Governor and Senator to put aside their political differences and focus on development agenda of the county.
Job Bwoya, the Human Rights crusader who led the group said that time for politics is over after the re-election of Moses Wetang’ula as the county’s Senator, thus, they were to embark on constitutional implementation to pave way for consultative development.
“Governor Lusaka and Senator Wetang’ula should now desist from their political differences and war of words then realize the resident’s decision of electing them to foster and hasten the county’s development goals,” said Bwoya.
Bwoya called on political leaders to warn their supporters from engaging acts of hooliganism witnessed recently when a rowdy group of youths tried to force their way into the Governor’s office to intimidate him after the re-election of Wetang’ula.
He told the county residents to focus on constructive discussions based on economic growth other than engaging in political arguments that only benefits those in power.
Bwoya further called on the county’s top brass to convene the stakeholders’ conference to look into productive investments and how they can woo investors for economic growth.
