Governor Kiraitu Speaks On His Newly Formed Political Party

The Devolution Empowerment Party (Bus Party) will officially be launched in Meru County on Monday 13, December 2021 after the national launch which took place at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi a week ago.

DEP alias ‘Bus’ Party has a clear ideology which is unique in that it is the only party currently in the country that is agitating for empowerment of devolution by requiring the bigger share of national resources to be devolved to bring development and services to the mwananchi at the grassroots.

The objective of our party is to agitate for the lion share of national resources which are lying idly in Nairobi to be brought to the counties to uplift the lives of the mwananchi. 80% of the national budget in Agriculture and Health is left in Nairobi while only 20% is brought to the counties where the work of development and service delivery to the mwananchi is happening. What agricultural activities are happening at Kilimo House, or what hospitals are there at Afya House?

Our Party will campaign for the 20% to be used for the few functions left in Nairobi so that the bigger 80% can be cascaded down to counties to fasten development and economic growth at the counties.

Some of the people speaking against our party don’t even have parties, while others have weak parties with no members or leadership. They should instead, mind the business of building their own parties.

DEP will carry out a rigorous campaign and is not afraid of challenge from anyone. The party already enjoyed support from the entire Meru County Assembly as attested today where 40 MCAs are present during the presser. We will soon be popularize our ideologies in all the villages in the region so that our party will be the most popular and dominant party among women, children and the youth.
