A group of youths from Saboti constituency has come to the defense of area MP Caleb Amisi following a Monday incident where his tour to launch development projects was disrupted.

Mr. Amisi opened an administration block at Masinde Muliro secondary school and launched the BBI signatures collection drive before the ugly encounter with youths at central primary school.

The incident has been condemned as backward by a group of youths who say there is more than meets the eye owing to the growth of the hooliganism culture within Matisi and Tuwan wards.

“We call on those who are hell bent on disrupting meetings organized by the MP to keep off. We have discovered that they are being used by his opponents,” said Mr. Sarabai Emmanuel.

They also called on the police to get to the bottom of organized gangs in the region that have mastered the art of disrupting meetings organized by political leaders in search of handouts.

“The rule of law must apply in Tuwan and Matisi wards just like any other part of this county. We should not allow hooliganism to become the order of the day,” said Mr. Dan Omondi, a Boda Boda rider.

Mr. Amisi has in the meantime called for cooperation from youths in his constituency to enable him deliver on his pre-election promises saying sideshows will throw a spanner in the works.

“You mean I cannot come here to launch projects peacefully without interference by the youth? When my term is over and I have not achieved anything…you are the ones who will tell me I haven’t done anything,” he said.

He however vowed to keep serving the constituents without any biases but warned aspirants who are eyeing his seat to challenge him on issues instead of resorting to dirty means.
