Saboti MP Caleb Amisi has initiated a working partnership with Members of County assembly (MCAs) from five wards in his constituency as one way of guaranteeing development for residents.
The second time ODM legislator said he has set aside his political affiliations to forge a working relation with the five ward representatives since bickering among leaders is a major hindrance to economic development.
“We were elected by different political parties but what is expected of each of us is delivering on the pledges we made while on the campaign trail. We can only develop if we are united,” said Mr. Amisi at the St. Kizito Catholic Church Matisi.
The legislator was accompanied by MCAs Obed Mwale (Matisi ward), Francis Were (Tuwan Ward), Geoffrey Wambwa (Machewa), Andrew Kipekee (Kinyoro ward) and Boniface Cheloti (Saboti ward).
The ward representatives welcomed the gesture by the MP saying they look up to him as their patron with regard to propelling the region socio-economically since he is their link in the national stage.
“We all have a common goal of economic development. This new found partnership will be key in ensuring we join hands in addressing the challenges faced by our people through several kitties,” said Mr. Wambwa.
The MP also took a swipe at President William Ruto following his plan to cast the taxation net wider in order to boost the domestic revenue saying the move will only hurt the economy which is already in a bad state.
“No country can tax its way to prosperity. The president should develop a culture of consultation with the relevant stakeholders before he comes up with his economic policies,” Mr. Amisi advised.
The legislator also called on Trans Nzoia residents to give area Governor George Natembeya ample time to deliver on his pre-election campaign which can only be realised through infrastructure.
