An advocacy group in the Maringe-Kokota constituency in Isabel Province, the People’s Right and Power Group, says the constituency needs a change in leadership.

A spokesperson Samson Aumae said the Constituency leader lacks transparency,accountability and fairness and the people need changes in terms of leadership in this year’s general election.

Mr Aumae also said the Maringe Kokota constituency is among other smaller constituency in the country that are yet to see meaningful development.

“Compared to other constituencies within the country, our constituency is very small. Looking at the allocation for every constituency across the nation, we have the same share and for 2013 we received five-point-something plus million dollars across the constituencies. Why is that other constituencies tend to benefit and seeing more changes rather than Maringe-Kokota which is now moving backwards, actually we are not experiencing any development at all.”

Meanwhile, the People’s Right and Power Group spokesperson said the Group is urging people in Maringe-Kokota constituency to choose right leaders in this year’s election.
