Bumula MP Moses Mwambu Mabonga has expressed his displeasure with the fact that some politicians are still applauding the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, saying the praise is past its time. Addressing parents and education stakeholders after officially opening three classrooms at Mundaa primary school in his Bumula backyard. Mwambu said a year on after the handshake, focus must be shifted to other important issues, including the Big Four Agenda.

He said it’s unfortunate some people have focused on the handshake yet there are better things to focus on. Concerning the Big Four Agenda, the Bumula MP said President Kenyatta should gauge resources availability, and if the resources aren’t sufficient, two pointers in the agenda should be scrapped off.

He advised the President to retire honourably after his ten-year term, so as to guard his legacy, and that those who are calling for his term extension are misguided. He also proposed that all elective posts should be pegged to ten years, saying that’s enough to execute development projects for any visionary leader in office.

On the referendum, he said it should take place only for the benefit of the ordinary citizen rather than creating more posts for individuals. Mabonga said he will continue to fund more projects in the education sector urging parents to ensure they take their children to school.
