Siaya senator, James Orengo today called on Kenyans to bequeath the country with dignified leaders during the next general elections.
Orengo said that the country’s respect amongst its peers is at stake and should the Kenyans make a mistake of trusting leadership on the wrong hands, it will go to the dogs.
He was speaking during the inauguration of the Hopes, Dreams and Dignity initiative that brought together young women who will traverse the country preaching menstrual hygiene and peace amongst young Kenyans.
The senator, who is vying for the Siaya gubernatorial seat during the next general elections, said people with tainted records cannot be trusted with leadership and urged Kenyans to reject such leaders.
Orengo, who was flanked by his running mate, William Oduol challenged the youth to support the Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya alliance presidential candidate, Raila Odinga to become the country’s fifth president as he had the interest of the country at heart.
“Ensure that your vote will be among those that will make history. Failure to vote for Raila will mean his dreams for a better country will go down the drain” said Orengo.
A founder member of the Hopes, Dreams and Dignity Champions, Elizabeth Adongo said that the initiative will go round the country to sensitize the youth on the need to carry themselves with dignity during the campaigns.
The founder of the initiative, Ruth Mueni urged the youth to vote wisely during the forth coming general elections.
Mueni said that the initiative will, apart from the peace campaigns, be donating food and sanitary towels to the vulnerable youths.
