National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang’ula Sunday asked elected leaders from the Western region to put aside their political differences and unite for the sake of the community’s development.
Speaking while addressing a church congregation on Sunday during a funds drive to aid the completion of the Friends Lirhembe Church at Ikolomani constituency Kakamega county, Wetangula emphasized shunning divisive politics for the community’s meaningful development as he asked leaders from the region to respect each other and speak one political language.
“If I have done something wrong call me aside as your leader and tell me this is wrong instead of going to a public podium or the Media to air our dirty linen in public”, said Wetang’ula.
He said the Chief Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavid and himself were committed to ensuring that the region’s political and economic respect is restored.
“If you have seen Musalia, any other leader or even myself error somewhere just politely tell the leader to correct the error, or if you can’t access the leader, then inform those who are closer to that particular leader for one to change instead of unclothing your leaders in public since that’s how communities nurture their leaders,” he said.
He said the late President Mwai Kibaki was first elected as an MP in the 1960s but was nurtured until he became the President in 2002.
He asked Luhya leaders to walk together and ensure that the journey to State House that was started by the late Kijana Wamalwa and Masinde Muliro is attained.
