Kapseret MP Oscar Sudy and his Nandi Hills Counterpart Alfred Ketter have faulted the electorate in Uasin Gishu and Nandi counties for electing different leaders every five years terming the trend unwise. They impressed upon the electorate to allow them serve for two terms to avoid stagnation of development projects due to change of leadership after every general election in the country.
The two legislators said tangible development will forever remain a mirage if voters bundle their elected leaders out of office every five years.
They expressed concern over the high number of elected MPs who are shown the door after every General Election, saying the trend was to blame for slow pace of development the region and across the country.
The MPs pledged to deliver on their campaign promises and asked residents to support them. The two spoke during a funds-drive in aid of Lemok African Inland Church in Kapseret, Uasin Gishu County where more than Sh800,000 was raised.
The two MP’s also said they are dissatisfied with skewed manner in which State jobs are being distributed in the Jubilee Alliance government.
