Kombo challenged political leaders to be role models since members of the public copy from what politicians do.

"Men and women who ventured into politics need to tolerate each other, embrace peace while discharging duties. It is good for elected leaders and those who lost in the last polls to be good role models to Kenyans," noted Kombo.

Kombo who is in his early 80s regretted that a section of youthful politicians are disrespecting ageing leaders.

The speaker maintained that age should not an excuse as to why electorates should not vote for anyone.  

"A leader's age should not be a reason why one should be barred from holding a public office. Some of us may be old but, able to deliver," said Kombo.

He assured that should youthful leaders fail to organize themselves, it will be very hard to kick out the longest-serving politicians. 

Kombo was speaking on Monday when he joined Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi and Kitutu Chache North MP Jimmy Angwenyi during the launch of IEBC's annual voter education week for Kisii County an event that will run from 10th to 16th June 2019 across all our 9 constituencies.
