David Karithi clash with Aden Duale over Meru Politics
In Feb, 2016, Tigania West MP David Karithi told National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale to keep off Meru politics and to stop imposing leaders on the people of Meru.
Mr. Karithi accused Mr Duale of interfering with Meru politics by trying to endorse a particular candidate to the Ameru people.
Mr Karithi said the electorate have the right to choose their own preferred candidate without being coerced into supporting certain aspirants.
In his speech during a fundraiser at St Pius X Seminary in Nkubu, Mr Duale appeared to support Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi’s gubernatorial bid in the 2017 General Elections.
Mr Duale lauded Kiraitu for being a visionary and transparent leader but Mr Karithi said those interested in different seats should hunt for votes at the grassroots where voters are because “they are our employers.”
David Karithi take on Meru – Isiolo border conflict
In February 2016, Tigania West MP David Karithi blamed persistent cases of cattle rustling on the Meru-Isiolo border on breakdown in the police command.
This follows two incidents of cattle rustling this week that left a herder killed and more than 140 cattle and 80 goats stolen.
Mr Karithi said despite the presence of Anti-stock theft, Rapid Deployment Unit and General Service Unit camps, crime had continued unabated.
“There is need for an overhaul of security officers in the area. There are enough security officers strategically placed to curb crime but raiders keep stealing,” Mr Karithi said.
He said the security officers have failed to enforce directives by the Interior Cabinet Secretary Maj Gen (Rtd) Joseph Nkaissery that chiefs in whose area stolen animals are found be held accountable.
