The Amani coalition on Tuesday took its campaigns rally to Trans Nzoia to seek support from the cosmopolitan county.
Led by the party flag bearer DPM Musalia Mudavadi, they urged residents to uphold peace as the country heads to the March 4 general elections.
Maintaining peace will increase investor confidence
Mudavadi said that the image of the country was destroyed during the post election violence of 2007-2008 adding that maintaining peace would increase investors’ confidence.
“We need to show other countries in the world that we love peace and what happened after the 2007 general election was a mistake that we would never tolerate again,” said Mudavadi at Kiminini market.
He reiterated that the only solution for Kenyans to ensure that they elect good leaders who would make sure that the living standard of the people is improved is by turning up in large numbers to vote.
The UDF leader added that the Mondays’ debate gave Kenyans clear point out which they must use when electing leaders.
He said leaders in other coalitions failed to address the issue of land because they know that they own large tracts of land at the expense of poor Kenyans.
“For now, Kenyans know who they will vote for because they saw those who are clean and those who have been implicated in mega scandals that robbed the country off millions of shillings,” posed the DPM.
International sanctions would hinder devt
He further called on locals to be wary of leaders who might subject the country to international sanctions which he added would hinder the development progress the country has achieved.
The former Sabatia legislature pointed out that the image of Kenya was important than individual’s and Kenyans should avoid voting for people who would tint it.
He added, "Our economy is still relying on international support of the regional and international friendly states who not only offer market for the country’s agricultural products but also financial aid.
Do away with KCPE
The minister for justice Eugene Wamlwa who had accompanied the DPM said the Amani government will do away with KCPE because it has forced many young children to drop out of school for failing to get enough marks to join secondary school.
"We can no longer witness our children suffering because they dont have education; we want to change the situation," remarked Wamalwa.
He added that the Amani coalition would respect the outcome of the general election for the betterment of the country's unity.
