Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has asked the ruling party to ensure Senator Edwin Sifuna and City Woman Rep Esther Passaris are invited to government functions in the city and that two leaders must be respected after being overwhelmingly voted to office by Nairobians.
”Wakati kuna function ya serikali kuu, tafadhali, kua pia unaalika viongozi wote. Saa zingine Senator hua anasahauliwa…Seneta wetu Edwin Sifuna awe anaalikwa anaambiwa tuko na function, anaalikwa rasmi ili aje,” Governor Sakaja in Nairobi on Saturday.
”Hawa wananchi walipigia Esther Passaris kura isiwe pia Esther anaitwa na SMS ya MCA asubuhi. Pia Yeye awe anaalikwa. Heshima sio utumwa,” Sakaja continued, adding that he had given similar instructions to the Nairobi county government to involve leaders from both sides of the political divide in running the county.
”Kwa kaunti nimeambia watu wangu wa kaunti, tukienda wa ward yoyote na MCA ni wa Azimio au Kenya Kwanza apatiwe heshima zake, awe aalikwe awe anakuja functions. Mbunge aalikwe, aje functions…Nairobi kabila ni mbili tu, kabila na maskini.”
The Governor has also asked city residents not to allow unnamed politicians to divide them along tribal or political party lines.
