Bungoma County Governor Kenneth Lusaka has called upon candidates in opposing political parties to desist from using foul language and abuses in their campaigns saying they should instead tell the people of Bungoma what they will do for them when elected.

He specifically pointed out Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, accusing him of belittling himself to abusing him in political rallies saying that character is uncalled for since a leader of his calibre should not be doing that.

Governor Lusaka said the Senator had set his goals high and even dared to vie for the top seat in the country and they provided him with all the support saying if his journey did not end well he should not vent his anger on other leaders.

He asserted that working with the current Jubilee government has been of much benefit to the people of Bungoma County citing the Misikhu-Brigadier road under construction, Kibabii University getting a charter and other developments saying other leaders should not oppose that.

Lusaka was speaking at Lusokho village in Tongaren Sub County where he had earlier donated bags of cement to Lusokho primary school to aid in construction saying despite the education sector not being devolved they have to ensure the pupils learn in a conducive environment.

Dr. Juma Mukhwana, a Bungoma senatorial aspirant on a Jubilee ticket who accompanied the governor said he supports the recent decision by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission to reduce the salaries of state officers saying it will help to enhance development.


He said good leaders should be driven by the urge to help the residents to lead a comfortable life free from poverty saying the reduction in salaries will help to have more development projects initiated by the leaders.

Area MCA Bethwel Mwambu Fwamba urged the residents to vote for leaders in the Jubilee party saying it is only through being in government that more development projects will be started in the region.
