Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) youths in Nakuru County have told off Nyanza MPs and senators who are opposed to Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero’s development activities in the region.
Also, the youths urged President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, to conduct harambees in Nyanza, saying the leaders don't need permission from anyone.
“Days when some Nyanza leaders would play cheap politics in a bid to keep power at the expense of development are long gone and they should let Mr Kidero do his work because they have slept on the job,” said Mr Abiola Hilton Abiola, Nakuru County ODM leader.
However, the youths said their loyalty and support for former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was intact.
The group said political leaders who claimed that Mr Kidero was being used by the Jubilee government to undermine Mr Odinga were anti-development.
“The former PM has even given Mr Kidero his blessings to work with the Jubilee government because he cannot work in isolation. It therefore beats logic to see some of the leaders making noise,” said Mr Abiola.
The youths urged Cord governors to work with Jubilee if they hoped to fulfil their promises to the electorate.
