Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has congratulated Kennedy Musyoka for being elected to EALA.

He said Jubilee’s support for Musyoka proves that politics is over and they are ready to work across the political divide.

“We are very sure he will deliver. Jubilee leaders supported him 100 per cent, showing that we are one thing and politics is over,” he said on Saturday.

Kalonzo Musyoka’s son is among NASA’s representatives to the East African Legislative Assembly.

He was elected with 309 votes alongside Oburu Oginga (243), Abdikadir Aden (234), and Fatuma Ibrahim (143).

Jubilee, on the other hand, backed Simon Mbugua (286), Florence Jematia (252), Mpuru Aburi (208), Wanjiku Muhia (180), and Adan Noor (192).

They will be sworn in on Monday in Arusha.

Mr. Lusaka asked leaders from across the political divide to work together to ensure maximum development is realized.

The Speaker made the remarks at the first public goat auctioning event in Nguni Market in Mwingi central.

The event was organized by Kitui Senator Enock Wambua and area MP Gideon Mulyungi.

Mr. Mulyungi asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to soften his stance on the Opposition and consider dialogue.

Kirinyaga Senator Charles Kibiru, who also attended the event, said unity will make Kenya realize its full potential.

He said leaders from both Jubilee and NASA voted for Kalonzo’s son, which shows that there should be no divisions on political lines.

Kitui county intends to hold the goat auction annually in December as a means of mitigating the effects of drought.

Machakos Senator Boniface Kabaka bought 87 goats during the event.
