Mbadi declared that the food distribution exercise being done in the Luo Nyanza region must not be politicised.
Mbadi said under the new constitution opposition Members of Parliament (MPs) don’t need to kneel before the government to get development projects for their constituencies since the constitution guarantees them funds for development.
“Let them do what they are doing but they will soon meet a push back, I will be leading the push-back in Nyanza” the tough talking Mbadi added noting that the food distribution was once politicised by former President The late Daniel Moi but it did not succeed.
