Wetangula urged to unite Luhyia community

24 December 2013, 10:26 Wilshere

Nakuru - Elders of Luhyia the community residing in Nakuru town on Tuesday morning hailed the victory of Moses Wetangula as the of Bungoma Senator. 

The Luhyia group also urged the reelected senator to use his position to unite the entire community.  

Jackson Wandera, who spoke on behalf of the community said the Luhyia community being the second largest in the country had a role to play in the country’s leadership.

“ We want to challenge the new elected senator to start a mobilization campaign to unite the community   so that they may have a stake in the county’s leadership come 2017,” they said.

They said leaders should come together regardless of their political parties if the unity has to be achieved.

Wandera observed that despite the community having a numerical strength they are still yet to make an impact on the leadership of the country.

“It is high time our leaders set aside their political differences and focus on archiving unity,” he said.

He said the community still suffers from lack of development with the mainstay of the economy being sugar sector.

The officials noted that leaders from the community have been battling for supremacy for along time at the expense of development.

“The politics of undercutting one another for selfish short term gains should be discouraged for the community to be economically empowered,” the officials said.
