Murang’a leaders have condemned incidences of political rivalries pitting incumbents and aspirants that have played out in public in recent weeks.

Mathioya Member of Parliament, Clement Wambugu, said that it was ridiculous for elected leaders and aspirants to engage in physical altercations saying all engagements should be done in as sober and placid way.

The legislator said that it was so unfortunate for political leaders to trade insults in public and create tension saying all campaigns should be held in respectful and peaceful manner.

Wambugu called on all aspirants to present their manifestos to the public and allow the voters to make their independent decisions when Kenya goes to the ballot on August 8, 2017.

Speaking during a centenary celebration at Kambala Anglican Church on Sunday, September 25, the MP said that it was ridiculous to see leaders fight over an issue that will be resolved through the ballot.

On her part, Murang’a County Women Representative, Sabina Chege, expressed disappointment in the recent altercation between Runyenjes MP Cecily Mbarire and Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti saying that leaders must behave in a manner that does not compromise peace.

Ms Chege said that Jubilee is a strong and open party which believes in the people adding that there is need to embrace each other and accommodate everyone.

She called upon her colleagues to remain humble and sell their policies to the voters who will make the ultimate decision come next year.

The leaders were speaking barely a week after Mbarire and Kivuti publicly engaged in a show of might with their supporters turning chaotic.
