Kakamega senatorial aspirant Stanley Livondo was heckled by a section of a crowd while opening a new Jubilee party office in Hamisi Sub County. The area is alleged to be the stronghold of former deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi who is co-principal in National Super Alliance (NASA).
Livondo who is vying on a Jubilee ticket had tried to sell Jubilee party manifesto in the area while terming NASA as a failed political unit that has lost direction.
Shouts of “NASA, NASA, NASA….” rented the air as the hopeful tried to explain the kind of projects the Jubilee government has initiated in the area to uplift their living conditions. He braved the crowd but with interruptions and said Jubilee administration had improved infrastructure and extended water projects in the area to tunes of billions thus easing movement and offering clean water for consumption to more people.
“The Jubilee government has initiated development projects to the locals to uplift their well being but the opposition has nothing new and tangible to offer,” said Livondo. Livondo informed Jubilee aspirants to be strong and not to be scared since he will fully fund their campaigns to ensure they bag the coveted seats in the area.
“I will personally sponsor all Jubilee candidates in the area. This shows how much Jubilee value your candidature and we are heading for a big win,” said Livondo. He was accompanied by Jubilee politician from Nyali Ashraf Bayusuf.
Livondo called on the youth to shun violence during campaigns and not to be used by selfish politicians who have no interest in them. “I call on the youth and women to form groups and create Saccos to enhance their earnings. I will fund such groups to alleviate poverty amongst themselves and refrain the youth from engaging in political chaos during campaigns,” he said.
He advised the local officials to develop a winning strategy instead of over-relying on briefs from the Jubilee headquarters. Livondo was hosted in the area by Jubilee county coordinator Albert Indasi who called for peaceful elections and campaigns. Livondo called on the electorates from the perceived home turf of Musalia Mudavadi to vote President Uhuru for a second term to finish his development goals for the Country.
