As Kenyans prepare for the repeat of presidential polls to be held on October 17th, the National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders have been urged to drop their demands before the fresh polls so as to have a peaceful election. Mbakalo MCA in Tongaren constituency Bethwel Mwambu Fwamba says Kenyans are ready for the polls but demands by the opposition are uncalled for as what they are demanding cannot be fulfilled in this short period of time.

He said the leaders have perfected the art of engaging in diversionary tactics, saying they should focus on the campaigns instead of interfering with independent bodies like IEBC.

”We have previously witnessed them picketing and demanding the removal of former commissioners who served in the previous regimes but we shall not allow them to bulldoze us and hold us at ransom just to have their way,” he said.

Mwambu who is serving his second term on a Jubilee ticket also called upon Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati to complete the projects initiated by his predecessor Ken Lusaka saying they will benefit residents at the grass root level.

He added that with the MCAs have been elected on different party tickets and they should work in harmony with the Governor as well as his executive committee members to ensure development projects are initiated and funded to completion.

Mwambu disclosed that the County assembly is now constituting several committees as well as leaders of the majority and minority saying they are looking forward to a vibrant house that will be able to pass bills that will be beneficial to residents of Bungoma County.

He further thanked residents of Mbakalo ward for having granted him a second chance to be their leader saying he will work hard to ensure they benefit from devolution whose main aim is to bring resources up to the grass root level.
