Nyamira MCAs reject motion to adjourn over Uhuru visit
Mr Charles Barongo argued that allowing such a motion “will set bad precedence in the House” as each member may seek similar adjournments once their political party leaders visited the area.
“This is a campaign period and Mr Kenyatta is coming visiting not as a President but a presidential candidate. My presidential candidate is Raila Amolo Odinga and therefore I cannot attend the Jubilee rally,” Mr Barongo said.
“It will be bad if I will not attend the President’s function since he is going to land in my Ekerenyo ward,” Mr Nyabaro said.
The two are expected to start their campaign rallies at Ekerenyo sports ground in North Mugirango before moving to Gesima in Kitutu Masaba constituency.
Mr Laban Masira said there was no official invitation to the Assembly to warrant them to adjourn to attend the function.
Mr Robinson Mocheche said his Bonyamatuta ward residents will not allow him attend a Jubilee campaign function yet they had elected him on ODM party.
In the last three weeks, the Uhuru has met two separate delegations from the community in State House Nakuru and Nairobi as the part of the reconciliation efforts with the community though both times he was left embarrassed after they left chanting NASA slogans.
