Stop condoning terrorists, North Eastern politicians told

13 July 2015, 11:42 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP, Kanini Kega has asked North Eastern politicians and leaders to stop condoning terrorists and criminals.

Kega further urged the Leader of the Majority in the national assembly, Aden Duale to furnish the state with names of Al Shabaab financiers and sympathizers as he had promised few months ago.

“Duale and other politicians promised to name Al Shabaab financiers and sympathizers within 100 days. I want to remind him that the ultimatum is over and he should provide the names as soon as possible. We are tired of these killings perpetrated by terrorists,” said Kega.

He noted that close to 30 young people from Nyeri County have died in the hands of Al Shabaab, the recent one being last week’s attack where 14 quarry workers were killed as they slept.

Ten of the deceased persons hailed from Gathathini village in Kieni constituency.

While addressing mourners during interdenominational prayers at the village over the weekend, the MP asked government to invest in programs that will improve local economic opportunities in his vast constituency.

“Young men have been travelling from Nyeri to Mandera, a distance of more than 1 000 kilometers because they are hardworking. We need better projects that will minimize that exodus in search of jobs,” said Kega.

Kega further called for expeditious implementation of the eight mega-dam project proposed for the semi-arid constituency which is sparsely populated.

He explained that availability of irrigation water will create jobs in the agricultural sector leading to improved livelihoods.
