Kiminini Member of Parliament(MP) Dr Chris Wamalwa has asked the National Cereals and Produce Board ( NCPB) to heed to President Uhuru Kenyatta's directive to buy maize from farmers in the region. 

He said farmers had endured enough pain with most of them failing to service their loans leading to auctioning of their property.

Speaking in Naisambu village in the Hospital Ward in Kiminini during the burial ceremony of Herman Nyongesa Simiyu who was former County staff, Dr. Wamalwa asked Kenyans to be resilient, kind, and with dedication in giving service both to God and humanity. 

On Chief Justice David Maraga's advisory to the President to dissolve Parliament,  he absolved August House from the failure to pass the two-thirds gender rule and added that there was no cause for alarm. 

"For the past two weeks, the debate on whether the bicameral parliament should be dissolved has been the talk of every Kenyan. Parliament cannot be blamed for the impasse as there are well spelled out mechanisms to address the matter," he said.

 The MP has positioned himself to succeed Trans Nzoia Governor Patrick Khaemba asked the residents to reject the politics of hate.
