    Election promises; murmurs rise against Omar


    MWENEZI – Barely four months after his by-election victory, some people in Mwenezi East are expressing discontent with the MP, Joosbi Omar who they accuse of having failed to fulfil election promises.
    The people who talked to The Mirror said that Omar had promised to turn their living standards within a period of one-and-half months by creating jobs for the youth and launching income generating projects such as welding, poultry rearing and garment making.
    "We are disappointed that Omar made false promises to us in order to get our votes here in Mwenezi. It's now five months after he won the by-election and he has not done anything to fulfil what he promised.
    Obert Nhapata said they were going to dump Omar in the 2018 general elections.
    Efforts to get Omar's comment were fruitless as he is currently in South Africa.
    Knox Mutsamba, Omar's campaign manager confirmed that Omar is currently in South Africa.
    "Omar must change now or face the music in 2018. He has made promises to us but has not done anything," said Melody Tavakei.
     "The projects are coming to you very soon and they will be administered in phases. It's up to you if you want to change the MP in the 2018 elections but if you work with me there is going to be development in your area," said Omar in April during victory celebrations at Rutenga.
