Ruto urges western leaders to embrace unity for development

30 December 2013, 17:31 Samuel Kisika

Bungoma - Deputy President, William Ruto has called on western leaders to foster unity to promote the region's economic growth and development.

Ruto said that political divisions among the leaders is the main cause of the region's rising underdevelopment state.

"Political disunity among western leaders has resulted into its economic underdevelopment, and they should embrace togetherness to come out of such problem," said Ruto.

"You should learn to vote for the region's one political party to limit unwanted political rivalry and differences for remarkable development," he added.

He defended the President following an outcry raised by western leaders of sidelining the region in the recent parastatal appointments holding that there are more appointments ahead and that they will be equally considered.

"There should be no blame to the government by western leaders for sidelining the region in public appointment positions.We still have more vacancies to be filled, and given amble time we will ensure the region gets is share," assured Ruto.

Former Saboat MP, Eugene Wamalwa called on Jubilee Government to consider development in western to overcome the collapsing of the region's firms.

"I urge the government to ensure that both Nzoia and Mumias Sugar Companies come out of the witnessed financial problems so that they don't too collapse like the PanPaper factory," said Wamalwa.

He noted that western residents depend on such factories and that their collapse would render them jobless resulting to social problems such as crime and poverty.
