Yatta MP Robert Basil has asked Ukambani Governors to be part of the planned demonstrations by the Azimio coalition next week.
Speaking in Nairobi, Basil said that the demos are people’s voices that the cost of living has gone up and the Government needs to do something.
In order for the voice to be heard Basil said all leaders across the region should join.
“The time for Kamba leaders to come together is now, lets all show up for the demos standing in solidarity with our leader Kalonzo Musyoka and other Azimio leaders,” Basil said.
He also rubbished claims that the coalition plans on ferrying people to the demos.
“Every Kenyan is feeling the pinch due to the high cost of living. We won’t ferry anyone to the demos because we have enough followers and more so those in Nairobi are enough for the demo. So those claiming we will ferry people should be ashamed. We will not relent in putting the Government in check, “Basil went on.
Governors from Ukambani have not shown any interest in the Azimio demos and rallies that have been held in several Counties.
In January, Makueni Governor Mutula Kilonzo junior noted that he would not be involved in the Azimio rallies and demos until the Ukambani region gets developed like the Nyanza region.
The Governor vowed to work closely with the current Government and ensure development for his people
The same vow was made by Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti who has never appeared in any of the Azimio rallies.
