Kajiado governor Dr. David Nkedienye has argued all leaders to unite and fight for the people of Kajiado County. Speaking during the burial of the late Chief John Olngereo ole Nchoki who was born in 1930 at Kipeto Kajiado West Sub County, Dr. Nkedienye said leaders should unite the people and avoid parties’ differences.
“We as leaders should unite our people. We should not shy off from telling them the truth. Let’s tell our people the value of our great land.” Governor said
He said parties are only conveyor straps to leadership positions but the people have the power to judge who they want to lead them.
His compassion was understood by many to mean that the voters risk voting in the “wrong people” to the position of leadership if they only look at the party in which they are linked to without considering their individual capacity to lead.
The governor asked the voters in the region to elect leaders who can foster unity, as opposed to those advancing divisive politics.
The Chief boss lauded devolution saying it has favored the counties especially the Maasai community. Nkedienye did not hesitate to warn lands grabbers that their days are numbered. Urging leaders to come together and hold hands to bring back the land that were grabbed long ago. “We must join hands as leaders and not politicize the issue of lands in order to restore back our land”. Outlining a number of lands grabbed Mosiro, Ololaiser and Oloirien among others.
Nkedienye urged the crowd to work hard and follow the steps of the late John who led by a good example by maintaining his integrity in leadership.
The event was attended by local leaders include Senator Mosite, Area MP Moses Sakuda, among others.
