Hon Mvurya today took time to urge the people of Msambweni constituency to elect a leader who will serve them all and not the party. He also criticized hon Joho for meddling with the issues of Kwale County instead of discharging his duties in Mombasa county.
"Kwa sababu Chama Cha Uhuru Kenyatta hakina mtu, basi tutachagua mtu wa Maendeleo na wala si vyama. Na pia nataka kukumbusha bwana Joho kwamba Mimi Ni wa gavana wa Kwale na sitaka mgawanyiko wa watu katika kaunti yangu." Hon Mvurya stated as reported by Radio Citizen.
It's remembered that Msambweni constituency was announced vacant by the National Assembly speaker after hon Dorr who was an ODM party member of Parliament died. But before his dead, hon Dorr was a diahard supporter of William Ruto.
But though the Jubilee Party did not field the candidate as per the handshake agreement, Hon William Ruto went ahead and fronted his Candidate through independent party. Something that were criticized several leaders who are pro-handshake.
