A Nakuru Businessman eyeing the Senatorial seat has slammed at some elected leaders who have failed to take responsibility in terms of Oversight role.
Addressing media in Nakuru over the weekend Engineer Jack Waihenya said a time has come for Kenyans to take stock of what the leaders they elected have done for the last 5 years before making decisions for whom to vote in come 2017.
While condemning the corruption cases that are being reported each and every day, Waihenya noted that most of the time it all starts with the procurement to construction of structures, an issue he says should be addressed.
“As an Engineer I must say corruption occurs during the procurement and construction stages and we must fight this. It is high time Kenyans take a stock of what their leaders have done for the last 5 years before re-electing them.
He refuted claims that his opponent Nakuru County Speaker Susan Kihika who recently was appointed among the top team to spearhead presidential campaigns will use the platform to gain popularity.
Waihenya said that cannot happen since the president had assured of free and fair nominations conducted by IEBC.
“The appointment of her (susan) to lead the presidential campaign in this region has no impact on local politics and remembers the President also assured us that the nominations of Jubilee will free and fair conducted by IEBC. What I can request is that we have to maintain peace in our campaigns “he said.
This comes even as debate is hitting up on who will capture the hotly contested Nakuru senatorial seat that has attracted 7 aspirants Susan Kihika, Koigi Wa Wamwere ,Wa mambo among others.
