Devolution Cabinet Secretary nominee Eugene Wamalwa (pictured, file) has issued his sterning response to Luhya leaders in NASA saying they were cowards.
Wamalwa said the absence of Moses Wetang’ula and Musalia Mudavadi from Raila’s swearing in ceremony on January 30 this year was an indication of weakness.
Speaking yesterday during a fundraiser at Kijana Wamalwa Memorial Secondary School in Bumula Constituency, Bungoma County, the former Sabaot MP said Luhyas were not ready to be led by weak leaders who did not have a firm stand.
Wamalwa said that history showed that Luhyas had strong leaders who had firm stands and had the strength to see out their actions.
The nominee said Luhyas should be ready to get strong leaders or else they will become irrelevant politically.
“We need leaders who are brave. Cowards die many times before their official times but the brave die gallantly. Those leaders failed their people and are not fit to lead the nation,” he said.
His sentiments were echoed by Bumula MP, Mwambu Mabonga, who said the time for politics was over and it was time for action.
Mabonga said the next elections should be held in accordance with the country’s Supreme law and those wishing for an election should wait for 2022.
He added that opposition should not try and force Kenyans into another election.
“The man is not sure of the oath that he took. Why is he calling for an election yet he knows that the time for that is up? He wants to take us round in circles the way Israelites spent 40 years in the wilderness,” he said.
