Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has asked political leaders in Homa Bay to embrace constructive politics ahead of next year’s General Election.

Kidero, who has declared interest in the county gubernatorial seat, told politicians eyeing various elective seats to refrain from campaigns that are likely to divide residents.

Consequently, he said, politicians should strive to sell their campaign policies devoid of divisive remarks and insults to ensure peace and tranquility prevails.

“We want aspirants to positively sell the agenda they have for the people because this is the best campaign formula being practised across the globe.

Politicians should desist from spreading propaganda against their opponents just to win voters,” Kidero said.

Dismissed rumours

Speaking during a Sunday prayer service at Ringa Catholic Church in K’Ojwach ward, Kabondo Kasipul sub-county, Kidero dismissed rumours that he had bowed out of Homa Bay gubernatorial race.

He challenged elected leaders from Nyanza region to mobilise residents to take  IDs and register as voters in readiness for the upcoming polls.

“Let’s focus on the bigger picture which lies ahead of us. We all have a duty to marshal residents acquire necessary documents that will qualify them to take part in the voting exercise,” he said.

The former governor who was accompanied by area MCA Joan Ogada and other local leaders, urged Homa Bay residents to elect a visionary person as their next governor in order to realise the development agenda.

Kidero has been out of Homa Bay political limelight for three months after launching his bid.

“Homa Bay residents need someone who understands their problems to become their governor. I know what is ailing the county and my candidature aims to fix it,” he added.

Ogada asked MCAs to use their grassroot positions to mobilise youths to enlist as voters ahead of the elections.

“It’s high time political aspirants stopped talking about their colleagues to gain popularity and instead focus on how more people can acquire IDs and register as voters,” Ogada said.
