You can't force us to support Jubilee, Luhya leaders tell Kavuludi

06 June 2016, 09:14 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Leaders in Vihiga County have told off National Police Service Commission chair Johnston Kavuludi after he urged the Luhya community to support Jubilee government in return for development projects.

Vihiga Senator George Khaniri and Sabatia MP Alfred Agoi said they can’t be forced to lick one’s boots for development projects to be done in their area.

“That shows what is happening behind the scenes in all these independent commissions. The constitution has clearly been ignored and as leaders, we are not happy about it,” Khaniri said.    

Agoi said, “Elections have not been held yet Kavuludi is telling us that Uhuru will be President next year; how does he know? Is something happening that Kenyans don’t know?”

The senator and the legislator while speaking separately at Mudidi African Divine Church and Moi Girls High School Vokoli respectively said Kavuludi is not the spokesperson for the region.

The leaders asked Kavuludi not to confuse and kill the electorates’ morale in the run up to the next election.  

Last weekend, Kavuludi dismissed Cord's Raila Odinga and Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi's ambitions in next year's presidential race.

He asked electorates from western region to vote for Jubilee government so as to enjoy the fruits associated with being in government.

Kavuludi said regardless of the region's desire to change their voting patterns, president Uhuru Kenyatta will still be in power come 2017.

"I can't fail to touch on that one. If we don't get realistic to recognise that we must be part of government all the time, we will keep saying the government will come which is ours yet we are out of government until we will die not being part of government," he said.

He warned the community that if it does not vote wisely, people should not complain that they are not being considered for plum government positions.

The leaders said the NPSC as an independent commission does not warrant Kavuludi any position to comment on politics and people can’t be denied development projects in their own country for exercising their democracy.

“If that is what all independent commissions have been believed to think, it is very unfortunate for Kenyans,” Khaniri said.
