Kisii Senator Sam Ongeri on Monday lectured a section of Kisii residents who heckled on him during the Azimio La Umoja rally, that was led the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Raila Odinga.
After Ongeri, who is eyeing the Kisii county's gubernatorial seat in the August polls under the Democratic Action Party of Kenya DAP-K, was welcomed to give his speech, the youths who had attended the function started chanting 'Simba' in reference to the Orange Democratic Movement, ODM gubernatorial candidate Simba Arati.
In his remarks, Ongeri who was unmoved by the chants, told the youths to continue with the chants, adding that it is important that they know the county needs a person who will deliver on the promises and interests of the residents.
"Endeleeni vijana, for those who are listening to me, I am happy that the Sugarcane factory here is me who brought it. I know what you want in this side, but the majority of you want a governor who will attend to their needs, the noise you are making here will not help continue making noise. We should look for votes without this noise," said Ongeri.
He went on to re-affirm his support for Raila Odinga, saying that he will continue campaigning for his bid across the county.
