Stop Being Jittery, JP Belongs To All Of Us, Sabina advises Central Kenya Politicians.

Murang’a Women Representative Sabina Wanjiru has advised politicians in Jubilee strongholds to stop being jittery about Jubilee Party as the party belonged to each one of them.

Reacting to the recent squabbles in Kandara where different politicians rushed to open parallel JP offices, the women rep said that no politician could claim to own or be the sole ear of the party. She instead challenged them to show their commitment to the party by going out to the wananchi to popularise the party and recruit new members.

“This hullabaloo of fighting over offices is childish. These are people who are scared and have no vision who think that the only thing to make themselves relevant is to open up an office. Anyone who wants to show support of Jubilee should actually go out there and convince people to join the party. Wacheni kupigania ofisi. Ofisi hazina kura. Go to the people for these is where the votes lie,” said Sabina at Amboseli Institute of Technology where she was the chief guest in their 7th graduation ceremony.  

She was of the opinion that neither politicians holding elective posts nor those aspiring for the same should be office bearers in Jubilee Party as this would compromise their positions.

She reaffirmed that come 2017, she would seek re-election as the women rep. adding that she would wish the people of Murang’a gave her the opportunity to complete the projects that she had initiated in her first term in office.

“I am glad the people of Murang’a gave me the privilege of leading them. Am not changing. 2017 I am will be the women rep of Murang’a County. We have had challenges as the women reps in the 47 counties as we had to hustle without any kitty to do projects but thank God, this year we got around sh. 4.5 million per constituency that we have started project with. I would therefore like to continue in this position so as to complete the projects that I initiated,” she said.

On the impasse bedeviling Moi University, Sabina appealed to political leaders to be careful not to divide the country through ethnicity. She pointed out that universities were national assets and anyone could assume any position in these institutions as long as they added value to them.
She reminded the Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago that public universities were not under the devolved government and therefore he had no role to play in their management. She also erred the idea of naming universities as per the regions they were in as this was creating a false sense of community ownership.

“If we take the direction we are taking now, I am sorry that our education will be in jeopardy. Universities are national institutions, we cannot propagate tribalism into our institutions of higher learning. Universities should actually bring Kenyans together. Let’s separate politics from our education system,” she concluded.
