Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege has told off those driving a wedge between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, saying they are telling lies.
Chege noted on Sunday that Kenyans support the two so nobody should cause disunity between them.
“We voted for them as a team and want them to continue as a team until their five year term is over,” she noted at PCEA Kiunyu church.
She added that Kenyans support the Jubilee government’s Big Four agenda and Uhuru’s hadnshake opposition leader Raila Odinga but that some people are using it to cause conflict between Uhuru and Ruto.
“We know there are no differences between the two leaders so busy bodies should keep off and let them work for Kenyans.”
Chege noted that Kenyans appreciate the peace brought about by the handshake and are happy that some allies of the opposition have been incorporated in the government in recent reshuffles.
At a church service that Ruto attended, however, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu told him not to trust Raila whom he accused of scheming.
He did not give details but said outsiders and newcomers are propagating non-existent cracks in Jubilee.
The woman rep. dismissed her Uasin Gishu counterpart Gladys Shollei for the constitutional amendment bill that seeks to scrap the seat and increase the number of women elected to parliament.
The bill that was tabled early this month proposes the pairing of constituencies to form ones that will be reserved for women, in a bid to observe the two thirds gender rule.
Chege is of the view that woman representatives work harder than other MPs and are on the same levels as senators and governors.
She also said many people find women more approachable when they have challenges so doing away with the position will make the search for help tougher for the public.
“I respect Shollei but I know that as a first time MP, she may find traversing an entire county tedious,” the politician said.
The MP further said Shollei should have conducted more research and consulted her collegues before tabling the bill that she said should not be passed.
“In Murang’a, we have worked so hard that people elected three more women as MPs. I hope locals will be so inspired by our work that they will also vote for more women MCAs in 2022,” she said.
Instead of being scrapped, Che recommended, woman representatives should be allocated more funds so as to help more people. She also said more Kenyans understand the importance of the importance so they will oppose Shollei’s proposal.
