“El-Chapo this is a learning process I have agenda of ensuring that the bursary funds are disbursed equally and not through tribal lines..You should not be asked whether you are Mwikali, Onyango before given the bursary.” Havi told the audience when responding to El-chapo.

“Am an entrepreneur  I have worked with International community I   have worked in this country and I know what exactly what should  be done to improve lives of our people especially  youths and women.’’ She said.

“I want to get more industries in Westlands so that we empower our youths ..they don’t  drink  because they are idle ,they do so because of failed leadership,” Sylvia said.

David  Otieno alias Cidi was taken to take by electorates to explain how he intend to use his activism to champion the right of Westlands residents should he clinch the Mp seat.

“For the last ten years who are these people doing business in this constituency? You will realize most of them are from far places in short they are non-locals  and our youths have been neglected in all these job recruitments.They need to be given opportunity to do such jobs this will create an employment.” David told the audience.
