Wrangles have emerged among Imenti South residents in Meru County over the creation of new constituencies according to BBI proposals.
Imenti south is supposed to get an additional sub-county leading to a new constituency in the area.
In a meeting held at Igoji by the youths from Igoji, the youths said that they support the proposed constitution boundary where Nkuene and Mitunguu wards remain as Nkuene – Mitunguu and also as a constituency.
They said those who are pushing for the new sub-county to cut across through Abogeta and Igoji wards do not understand the history of Imenti south and that they should desist from mis-leading people.
The youths said they wholly support BBI proposal to have an additional sub-county sprinted form Imenti South is a wise decision but their feeling is that instead of being joined with abogeta and Igoji wards, they should remain as Nkuene – Mitunguu which is their original mother home.
The youths criticized their political leaders who are proposing that the Igoji become together with abogeta adding that for a long time they have been co-hesisiting together as brothers and sisters from their friends from the upper side of Nkubu.
Residents wants Imenti south Sub-county to be subdivided into two where by some of the residents are proposing that Mitunguu ward remain in Nkuene while others want the sub-division be done in a way that Mitunguu ward become a part of Abogetha and Igoji.
What remains is on how the leaders from Meru will play their cards and on if the BBI which proposes a creation of an additional sub-county come constituency will pass.
