Section of Kirinyaga Church leaders drum-up support for Waiguru

A section of church leaders from Kirinyaga have urged voters to reject leaders dishing out money to seek for their support in the forthcoming general elections.

According to the Church leaders, some gubernatorial candidates are giving out money during campaign rallies to influence residents ahead of the election.

The clerics under the aegis of Yes Pastors Forum also called on residents to elect leaders of integrity saying some have nothing to show off since they were elected.

Led by Archbishop Dr. Daniel Njagi, the forum further accused one the candidates of engaging in insults and propaganda to tarnish the image of their opponents instead of selling their development agenda.

“They are giving out money in campaign rallies to confuse voters. We are asking our people to elect leaders who have Kirinyaga at heart, those with a good development track record and have a clear agenda to move our county forward,” he added.

The leaders have endorsed Governor Anne Waiguru for a second term saying that she deserves another term to complete the numerous development projects she initiated.

“Governor Waiguru has done extremely well for Kirinyaga. Her development record stands out. We will mobilize support for her bid and ensure that the people of Kirinyaga make their decisions based on the candidate’s track record,” the Archbishop said.

Reverend Stephen Kimotho and Pastor Eliud Ndegwa of Akorino Church said the gubernatorial race in Kirinyaga shouldn’t be politicised adding that those seeking to oust Waiguru should first tell the residents what they have done during their tenure in office in their respective positions.

“The contest for gubernatorial seat in Kirinyaga should be about development and not insults and chest thumping. Some of the candidates have a poor development record and are known for the wrong reasons,” Rev. Kimotho.

The clerics lauded Waiguru for the various development projects she has initiated singling out the Kerugoya Medical Complex, the cabro paving of all major towns, tarmacking of roads, as well as supporting farmers through agriculture value chain projects.

Governor Waiguru exuded confidence that she will win the elections with a huge majority even as she mobilized residents to support United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party candidates in the August 9 polls.

She spoke during a campaign tour of at Mathangauta and Gathigiriri ward, where she urged residents to come out n large numbers to re-elect her and enable her continue with the transformation journey she started five years ago.

“My development track record speaks for itself, my opponents have no development agenda. That is why I am the only agenda in their campaigns,” she said.
