Persons living disabilities to vote for Jubilee in 2017

08 August 2016, 15:45 Geoffrey Kimagut

Nairobi - About 1.5 million voters living with disabilities will vote for the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto in the next year’s general election.

According to the National Council for Persons With Disabilities (NCPWD) chairman David ole Sankok, the Jubilee government has done a lot to the people living with disabilities and they deserved to be  given another term.

Speaking to the Journalists in Narok town, Sankok said they have confidence in the Jubilee administration and they will do everything to ensure that they win second term.

“For the first time in the history of this country, we have a person with disabilities serving as Principal Secretary Josephita Mukobe,” he said.

Sankok added that all the minority groups where persons with disabilities are included have been taken care of and everybody is satisfied with the promises the government had pledged.

“Kenyans have now seen the reason why they campaigned for this government because all the appointments have reflected the face of all Kenyans,” said Sankok.

While thanking the government for exempting disabled persons from paying taxes and allowing them to import duty free vehicles, Sankok urged Kenyans to unite and allow the government to work and fulfill the promises they made to Kenyans.

“Kenyans want services at the end of the day that is why they voted for Jubilee government,” said the council boss.

He advised opposition leader Raila Odinga to retire from politics and leave it to the young people.

“Raila should just retire from politics because he has been a stumbling block to the Jubilee administration. He is fond of opposing and bring confusion to the country for almost four decades,” he said.
