While other politicians will be busy campaigning for August polls, Mp for Mumias East will be quitting from the political arena .
According to the Member of Parliament, it is time to pave way for new leadership in his constituency and move to other challenging opportunities. His move is a shock to many since politicians in Kenya rarely quit politics.
“I felt that I should give someone else the opportunity to lead. I have had my time in this office and strongly feel that am not short of ideas so that I should stick on one position as if we don’t have other people from Mumias who can lead,” the MP said in an interview.
Washiali has also proposed other leaders to emulate his good example by giving an opportunity to other people to carry the mantle of leadership.
“We have a law that limits Presidents and Governors to two terms. I think it should make sense even to legislators and senators to have limited terms after which somebody else will take over,” he continued to say.
