A section of elders from Mbeere South constituency have threatened to curse leaders who are using the youth to cause chaos and heckling of other leaders in political rallies ahead of the 2022 General Elections.

The elders said some leaders in the county have sensed defeat and are now using youth to create tension in the region and gain their selfish political interests

This comes barely days after some leaders were heckeled in Embu during the deputy president William Ruto tour to Embu county.

''We want to condemn with strongest words possible the act that happened when the deputy president toured in our area on Mbeere South some youths who were drunk shouted and heckled leaders who were elected by majority .

"We will curse them because these behaviors cannot be accepted in our area,'' said Muli Muasya an elder in Mbeere.

Muasya urged Mbeere South residents to blacklist leaders who are misusing youth to cause chaos and tension in political gatherings saying that they have no plan for the future of the country.

Samson Ndolo from Mwea ward said that the youths who were heckling leaders in Kiritiri were imported from other areas and they were not from Mbeere South.

The elders who were drawn from the four wards of Mbeere South said the act that happened before the eyes of the deputy president has never happened again in this area.

Ndolo urged leaders seeking elective posts from the region to unite and portray a good picture that can be admired by the young generations.

Aron Murithi on his part asked leaders to engage in healthy politics that will not jeopandize development in the area and scare away leaders of good will that will tour the area to bring development.

During the deputy president's visit to Embu county, some leaders are alleged to have staged leaders in all political stations the DP addressed to heckle their opponents and celebrate them.
