Machakos Deputy Governor Francis Mwangangi has called out Azimio leadership over planned demos. He asked Azimio to come together with the clergy and come up with a solution on how their issues can be articulated without going to the streets.
Speaking during the burial of Joseph Muasa, Mwangangi said that people were tired of going to demonstrations and it was high time leaders realized that. Joseph was the father to Matungulu West Ward MCA Raphael Lucky.
“These people elected us overwhelmingly, taking them to go and demonstrate would be unfair to them. These clergymen and women are the ones who prayed for the current government. If only our party leader Kalonzo Musyoka would sit down with the clergy and come up with a solution,” said Mwangangi.
“Through this coming together, we can look for a way to articulate our needs and those of the people as Azimio leadership without going to demonstrations because people are tired,” he added.
Mwangangi also called on the national government through the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure to ensure that Kangundo Road is made a dual carriageway.
“If this Kangundo Road is going to be made a dual carriageway let it not end at Tala. Let it go all the way to Mwala so that we can open up room for investors in Machakos county,” he said.
Mwangangi was in the company of Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti, Matungulu MP Stephen Mule, and elected MCAs from Machakos County Assembly.
