Sirisia political candidates have vowed to conduct peaceful campaigns ahead of August 9th polls.
Addressing the media after meeting IEBC officials on Wednesday 8th June, Sirisia parliamentary seat candidate on ANC ticket Mr. Robert Mallabah Munoko said political violence is outdated, urging his fellow politicians to maintain peace.
“I want to urge my political competitors to preach peace and avoid conflicts, politics is all about ideologies and not a war, so let’s stop violence.” He said.
He warned youths to avoid violent politicians who use them as instruments to cause chaos in public gatherings especially in funerals.
His sentiments were echoed by Namwela Ward ANC candidate Mr. Reuben Mabonga who called upon the residents of Sirisia Sub County and Western region at large to maintain peace.
On the other hand, Lwandanyi Ward candidate on an independent ticket Mr. Joseph Maori appealed to the church leaders all over the country to pray for the nation ahead of polls.
“It’s time for the church to kneel down and pray for the nation, so that we can have peaceful elections in August.” He said.
Maori further urged the residents of Bungoma to make a good decision by electing a development oriented leader.
