Uhuru has neglected Kikuyus from Nakuru, Laikipia and Nyandarua

20 November 2015, 08:11 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - A member of parliament has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of neglecting Kikuyus from the counties of Nyandarua, Laikipia and Nakuru.

Nyandarua County women representative, Wanjiku Muhia said that despite getting over a million votes from the three counties during the 2013 general election, Kenyatta has overlooked the three regions when making senior state and parastatal appointments.

Speaking Thursday in Naivasha town, Muhia said that Kiambu, Nyeri, Murang'a and Meru regions have been favoured in Uhuru's appointments.

“Laikipia, Nyandarua and Nakuru have always been victimized by successive governments and we thought after voting for Uhuru things would change but things have remained the same.  We have been left behind in terms of senior government appointments and our complaints have always fallen on deaf ears,” said Muhia.

She added: “We gave over one million votes to the Jubilee government but they have offered us nothing in return as opposed to Meru which only gave 800 000.”

She cited lack of government’s will to revive the pyrethrum and milk sectors in the three counties saying it is total neglect by the Jubilee administration.

“Recently, they bailed out the sugar industry but no one is talking about the pyrethrum and milk industries which are the backbone of our economy in the three counties,” she lamented.

She added that members of parliament from the three counties have formed a caucus dubbed ‘the Aberdare west group’ to push for their agenda saying that the Mount Kenya members of parliament have misrepresented them for long.
