UDF party vows to work with Akaranga

Vihiga - United Democratic Front (UDF) Party in Vihiga County has recanted its initial stance of not working with the area governor Moses Akaranga, and instead vowed to help him develop the region.
The party secretary general Nathan Kamidi said that the residents of the region will hold the party responsible if its members will not have delivered promises made during the campaigns and instead concentrated on sheer politicking.
“The UDF party wants to state categorically that it is going to work with the area governor Mr Moses Akaranga, regardless of the party that he comes from, for the better of this region. Engaging each other in politics will not help the people,” Mr Kamidi said.
He further refuted claims that Musalia Mudavadi was using the party members to pass his agenda, noting that Mudavadi is only the party leader and since failing to capture the presidential seat, he has not in any way influenced the decisions of the party members.
Kamidi said that the area county representatives who have already given their stand to use their numbers in passion unpopular agendas are doing it solely as individuals and not the party.
“MCAs who have personal reasons to frustrate the governor should know that we finished elections and it is time to work together regardless of our different parties,” he said.
He further pointed accusing fingers at Vihiga MCAs for failing to defend their oath of office to safeguard the constitution, saying that they were being involved in many activities that contravened the constitution.
“Many procedures as enshrined in the constitution are not followed by the county assembly in the area. I want to ask my fellow county representatives to stick to the law,” he said.
Kamidi is also a nominated county representative representing the youths.
