Jamleck Kamau, a Murang'a County gubernatorial aspirant, has urged residents not to be duped into adopting a six-piece voting pattern in the forthcoming August 9 General Election.

Kamau asked Murang'a residents to look for development-oriented leaders other than focusing on giving parties a clean sweep noting that most governors who rode on the six-piece wave in the last elections have registered dismal performance in terms of delivery of services and development programmes in their respective counties.

Speaking in Mathioya, Kamau said the famous six-piece at the ballot in 2017 saw some deserving candidates miss out on being elected, a mistake that should not be repeated.

"I urge the residents to ignore those who are calling for six-piece voting pattern because this time we are not looking at the party but individuals, the party will not come to work for the people but the person who will be elected is the one to be held accountable," Kamau said.

My track record speaks volumes

Kamau, who is vying for the seat on a Jubilee Party ticket, exuded confidence in trouncing his competitors this time around, insisting that his track record, while he was a member of parliament and a minister, speaks for itself.

He also said he will not be hanging on anybody's coat to win the seat, but instead go to the people to seek their support for the seat.

"I am a man enough and I don't need to cling to anybody to get this seat and I believe am the best candidate for the people of Murang'a," he opined.

At the same time, Kamau urged aspirants to ensure they conduct peaceful campaigns ahead of the nominations exercise and that they should be ready to accept the outcome.

"Party primaries have always been murky but we should not have violence at any given point. Those who will win, good for them, and those who will lose should accept the outcome and make peace with it."

Kamau said elections will be a one day affair and it should not leave the country in flames because of politics.

"We want a peaceful and stable nation before and after the elections and both leaders and electorate should make this their personal responsibility," he concluded.
