Agriculture Minister Sally Kosgei has cautioned residents in the Rift Valley to be wise in making their political stands lest they isolate themselves from the rest of Kenyans.
Dr Kosgei said though it is still early, it is important that the community take care not to fall into a political trap that will ruin them.
"I know what is happening and it is still early for some people to ask about my political stand. Do not get excited over nothing because it is still too early," Kosgei said. She reminded residents of events leading to last year’s referendum.
"I told you the Constitution will pass, you declined but it did. You were told your land title deeds would be taken, have they?" she asked.
Kosgei was addressing a gathering at Father Mairs Girls Secondary School in her Aldai constituency during the Nandi South District Education Day on Friday.
She said she is proud to be in Parliament as an ODM member, a party she was voted in massively by her constituents. "I am not a pushover and have experience. I am thinking about the general development of Aldai through improvement of roads to connect market centres and extension of electricity to schools and improvement of living standards," she said.
Kosgei said MPs had not declined to pay taxes and that the dues should have been automatically deducted.
