Saboti MP Caleb Amisi has taken issue with a section of leaders in Trans Nzoia County who have mastered the art of attacking their colleagues at funerals instead of focusing on delivering on their mandate. Mr Amisi who spoke during the issuance of bursary cheques to students in the constituency at the county commissioners’ office said it is worrying that the said leaders turn funerals into grounds of insults.

 “This culture of attacks targeted at some leaders at every funeral in a bid to undermine them is barbaric. We should restrict ourselves to sympathizing with the bereaved instead of the attacks,” he said. The legislator challenged residents to make sure they put all elected leaders in the region to task to highlight what they have achieved during their tenure in the office instead of merely entertaining their tricks.

 “Most people are just running to MPs for development yet we have MCAs, the senator, woman representative and the Governor who have decided to take a back seat and shift the blame,” said Mr Amisi.

He challenged the electorate in the constituency against being swayed by aspirants in various elective and appointive positions that are splashing the cash to win them over yet they have no development track record. Trans Nzoia senator Dr Micheal Mbito and the area county government’s chief officer for water, environment and natural resources John Meng’wa are among leaders with positions who have shown interest in the seat.

Area county commissioner Samson Ojwang said they are on the lookout for leaders who are mongering hate in the region in the run-up to the 2022 general elections saying those found culpable will face the wrath of the law. “We have a duty of ensuring that the peace we are enjoying remains so and anyone who poses a threat through reckless statements will be held accountable. We are already pursuing one leader over threats,” said Mr Ojwang.
