MP under fire for calling elders a 'political cartel'

29 July 2016, 12:26 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - A section of youth leaders from Murang’a County have censured Kangema MP, Tirus Ngahu for claiming that Murang’a Council of Eminent Persons is a political cartel.

Speaking to journalists in Murang’a town, the youth leaders explained that the Council wants to bring people in the County together and propagate development agenda for the region.

They said the Council, under Chairmanship of veteran politician Charles Rubia, is composed of prominent people who have played a major role in the country’s politics and economic sectors thus need to be respected.

The youth led by nominated Murang’a MCA, Jimmy Kagoni told Ngahu to avoid insulting the members of the Council.

Kagoni claimed that the MP is a beneficiary of the Council.

“We all know the contribution the Council members have played in championing development in the County and we were shocked to see an MP dismissing their work,” said the MCA.

Last week, Ngahu dismissed the members of the Council terming them as a political cartel out to meddle in the County’s politics.

Ngahu said the council is composed of people who cannot provide any help to the residents of Murang’a, saying time of forcing leaders on people is long gone.
