A staunch supporter of Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 candidacy for President, Frederick Momanyi has opened up on his candidature for Ward Representative seat in the populous and cosmopolitan Township Ward in Kitui Central Subcounty.
Speaking during a recent Kamba-Kitui Consultative meeting held at Ex Machakos Senator Johnstone Nduya Muthama’s rural residence at Mua Hills, Momanyi, said that a match of President Ruto and like minded leaders like him will liberate the people from the yoke of under-development and poverty.
The youthful Kitui Town businessman assured that his leadership will offer the youth an opportunity to start their businesses and other income generating activities through trainings, capital and access to market.
Momanyi reiterated that he will be at the forefront in fighting corruption and bad governance to ensure that the youth, the women and people living with disability have a fair access to government procurement opportunities (tenders) as stipulated in the Constitution of Kenya 2010, inorder to uplift their livelihoods and build the economy.
Populary known by his peers as General Simba, he categorically emphasized on the need to ensure a safe and secure life.
“Too often young people are viewed as the source of regional and national insecurity, yet they are the most affected by it. Extremism and violence attract only a small number of youth, however, the majority of young people see their future vanishing into the sheer smoke of conflict.” He said.
The meeting brought together a cross section MPs, Jubilee officials and other leaders, it was also attended by Hustler Nation Lower Eastern Chapter Secretary General Dr. Alfred Wendi.
On his part Wendi urged all Kamba leaders to unite and back DP Ruto for President to ensure that the community is part of the next government.
“I condemn all political brokers who are used to negotiate on behalf of the Kamba community by diving the people. We must unite to make sure DP Ruto is elected President and our community is part of his government” said Dr. Wendi.
