By Kajiado Star Reporter

Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen has urged Kajiado South constituents to “release” area MP Katoo ole Metito, whom he described as “a very mature politician,”to serve the country at the national level come the next general election.Murkomen made the remarks when he visited PCEA church in Loitokitok and AIC church in Kimana, where he conducted a fund drives.

“We are now asking you, the people of Loitokitok,to allow your MP to start roaring nationally in terms of politics, since you have now elected him for four terms and we want to use his experience to benefit us all,” said Murkomen.

Nakuru Senetor Susan Kihika and Belgut Member of Parliament Nelson Koech, who were guests of honor in two separate church fundraising functions, asked the people to give oleMetito ago-ahead and campaign nationally,since he has led the people of Kajiado South constituency peacefully and all communities are present in his constituency.

“It is not an easy task for a politician to be elected twice in Kenya, but the people of Kajiado South constituency have really showed trust inole Metito, giving him a chance to serve for four terms continuously.We are asking him to come and bring his secrets of leadership to the national level, since he is among the few leaders in the National Assembly to have been elected four times,” said Ms Kihika.

On his part, Kajiado South MP Katooole Metito said his only secret was serving the people he represents faithfully.“Trust is what many people are looking for in true leadership.Security of the people is another aspect.If a leader does not create trust and the people don’t have confidence with their own security, they will not entrust leadership to you.”

The MP asked politicians to try those two aspects and people will have confidence in their leadership.

Katoo also stated that for one to be relevant in national politics,they must be in the National Assembly and not the Senate.“It is in the National Assembly that crucial Bills are passed and national debates held,”said the Kajiado South legislator.
