Democratic Action Party- Kenya (DAP-K) in Bungoma County has been urged to conduct free and fair nominations considering that the party never did any membership registration in some areas in the County.
This is according to Kabula ward MCA Vitalis Wangila when he was addressing his supporters on Kabula market in his ward where he was astonished to find out that there are politicians who have ganged up alleging to be party members with a hidden agenda saying he is the only aspirant on DAP-K and he has been reaching people with DAP-K policies in the area.
He also urged his supporters to maintain peace and unity during this electioneering period.
“I have never seen anybody from DAP-K come in Kabula to register party members, I have been walking around the ward telling my people what DAP-K is, and now am surprised to see and hear that we have people who have lists of names pretending to be registered members of the party who will participate in the party primaries, if that is the case then in Kabula ward all registered voters will participate in the nominations since I have sensed some mischief,” asserted Wangila
However, he used the platform to urge parents who their children performed well in 2021 KCPE exams but are from needy families to apply for the Bungoma County government’s scholarship so that they get support to continue with their education.
DAP-K members from Kabula ward stated that they have only been seeing Hon. Wangila publicize DAP-K policies and agenda in the area, therefore wondered with how other leaders from other parties are masquerading to be members of the party hence want to subject the area MCA into nomination something they wanted the party to be alert.
“We are on the look-out and we know who DAP-K members are, we know who is sponsoring who to face off with Hon. Wangila in party primaries, you can’t just come from nowhere and claim to be a DAP-K member!” A member wondered
They pledged their support to MCA Wangila as they highlighted some of the projects he has done in the area since he was elected in 2017.
