As expected from politicians, the Maragoli Cultural Festival held today was dominated by political messages.Amazingly though there was lots of unity suggestions from the individuals that are hell bent on clinching the top seat.
Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula said the Luhya community is united and will prove the naysayers wrong in 2022.
“Nobody can stop an idea whose time has come; we are united like never before like Siamese twins,” he said.
Wetang’ula said the top Luhya leadership is seeking to form alliances with other communities.
ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi said he optimistic that Luhya unity will lead to someone from the community clinching the presidency.
He urged the community not to be ‘hoodwinked’, adding that the sons of Mulembe had what it takes to take the presidency.
” Our unity is our strength because we have joined hands, I can assure you that this community will produce a President,” Mudavadi said.
Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa said the leaders of the community will no longer fight in public, but work together to ensure the community benefits.
“Instead of fighting, we will ensure we fight for you and the development of this place,” he said.
Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana told the Luhya community to unite first and work with others to capture the presidency.
Bungoma Governor Wyclife Wangamati urged Luhya-affiliated parties to dissolve and form one big party.
He said choosing one Luhya candidate this early was dangerous.
“Let’s not hurry those with ambitions in our community; that time will come,” Wangamati said.
