Amukura Central Ward Member of the County Assembly in Busia County Moses Pius Ouma aka Mose Baaba has said his vision for Kenya is to complete his 40-year political journey which started on August 8th.
Speaking at the burial of Alfred Taabu in Acunet village in his Ward on Saturday, the youngest MCA in Busia County Assembly at 25 years said his focus is not on 2022 when he will seek his last term as MCA.
“My focus is on the 40 years I promised you. I want to serve for 10 years as MCA, 10 years as MP, 10 years as Governor and 10 years as the President of Kenya before I quit politics.
History will repeat itself. The elections coincided with my birthday and I carried the day albeit with a paltry margin of three votes. The realization of my 40-year vision will depend on my service delivery,” he said.
Mose, 25, said he will not discriminate anybody during his five -year tenure as MCA. “I want to be like a mosquito which will not spare the child of the rich or the poor in ensuring they contract malaria.
My people of Acunet you gave me 16 votes but I am happy that the votes helped me beat my opponent by three votes. Although the voters of Kaliwa where I was born gave me 370 votes I cannot favour them at your expense,” he said.
He promised to consult the people of his ward on their priority areas before implementing any project, adding that he will not allow himself to be surrounded by a few people in arriving at the needs of his people.
The out-going area MCA Patrick Ombo said his defeat his not his voters’ happiness. ” God has many things in store for his people.
Pray for the new office bearers so that they will not discriminate others. Both who voted for then and who didn’t are all our people. I will be back in 2022 seeking the Teso South MP seat,” he said.
