Kiunjuri tells presidential aspirants to stop lying to voters

The Service Party Leader Mwangi Kiunjuri(pictured welcoming Judy Nyambura Muhia to his party) has cautioned presidential aspirants to stop lying to voters by making unrealistic promises.

Speaking during a church service at Kihoya AIPCA church in Kangema, Kiunjuri said those aspirants giving empty promises had once served in the government but failed to fulfill some of the promises.

“Some of these presidential aspirants are promising to change the economy for the better and yet they are the same people who have served in different government capacities over the past decades,” Kiunjuri said.

The Service Party Leader urged the residents of Mt. Kenya to scrutinise the aspirants before deciding which one to support and understand past political partnerships and why they did not work.

The former Agriculture CS challenged the aspirants to outline clear frameworks on how they will improve the lives of Kenyans noting that with the cost of living rising each day, many Kenyans are sinking into poverty as food prices continue to rise, while the average Kenyan’s earnings remains constant.

He said Mt Kenya region farmers want an assurance that agricultural imports such as milk and eggs will be restricted saying the current trend where farmers have their produce go to waste during glut and then imports flood the market during drought is punitive.

Kiunjuri noted that the promises being made are the ones made during every election cycle and added that it is appalling that the leaders have resorted to trading insults and accusations yet they have all had chances to work for Kenyans.

Meanwhile, the former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary received Rose Wachira Karani who will hoist his party’s flag in Kirinyaga County Woman Representative seat.

The seat is currently held by Purity Ngirci who has announced she will vie for the governor’s seat currently occupied by her rival, Anne Waiguru.

Karani was accompanied by a powerful team of foot soldiers.

”Welcome to TSP family. TSP is the only political party with pro-people agenda and driven by transformative ideas. TSP family believes that to create a just society, the parties have a duty to genuinely guarantee Human Security in terms of Health, food, Security etc. Welcome to the Party that represents aspirations of the Kenyan people,” Kiunjuri said.

He also received Sabastian Mwangangi Njagi who will contest the Tharaka parliamentary seat.

Kiunjuri also received a delegation of aspirants from Samburu led by Woman Representative aspirant Josphine Statian Lemoosa and David Lerno who is vying for the Samburu East parliamentary seat.

Other aspirants included Samburu West MP Aspirant Lolmodooni Peter, Boniface Lekirapiti (Angata Nanyokie Ward) and Bernard Saneneg Letiktik (Poro Ward).

Mid February the party welcome Judy Nyambura Muhia who will contest the Nyandarua Woman Representative seat. Nyambura previously served as Nyandarua as CEC for Trade and Co-operatives.
