Kisumu Senator Anyang Nyong’o and Kisumu county women Representative Rose Nyamunga ,Kisumu MPs Fred Outa (Nyando, James Nyikal (Seme), Ken Obura ( Kisumu Central) Olago Aluoch(Kisumu West ), Onyango Koyoo ( Muhoroni ), Aduma Owuor ( Nyakach ) and Shakeel Shabir (Kisumu East ) all boycotted Welcoming President Uhuru in Kisumu.
Uhuru Kenyatta was received by Governor Ranguma and Karachuonyo MP James Rege who doubles up a key Jubilee pointman in Nyanza.
Ranguma’s cabal members were tasked with Mobilization for Uhuru not to find a deserted City in protest of Marginalization and exclusion by TRIBAL Jubilee Leadership.
Jubilee Point Man in Kisumu now is Governor Ranguma
President Uhuru Kenyatta has visited Kisumu 6 times from the time he was sworn in as President of Kenya, His spokesperson Manoah Esipisu couldn’t pinpoint achievements of the visits, He resorted to listing amounts Devolved as some of the Jubilee Achievements in Kisumu as if Devolution is a privilege from the National Government.
Devolution is a Constitutional right, Kisumu must receive their share of Devolution just like Kiambu or Mombasa irrespective of who is in Government.
What we want Jubilee to pinpoint are projects outside Devolved funds, Projects funded by the 85% retained by the National Government.
Uhuru dishes Ksh. 20 Billion Roads in Kiambu while trooping to Kisumu City to Launch poems, choral verses, traditional dances and narratives expecting Local leaders to cheer him, nay, only his known sympathizers and point people like Governor Ranguma and Karachuonyo Mp James Rege can do that.
The same President they cheer is the same one silent about the attempted auctioning of Ksh 4.2 Billion Lake Basin Mall to some Jubilee Capitalists who oil Jubilee Party, a deal that will deny Kisumu people its ownership.
I support the Boycott by all Local leaders, that’s the best they could do to tell Uhuru that Kisumu people are tired of Jubilee’s empty Promises and Fruitless endless visits to preach ”Peace” as if Kisumu residents are at war.
We reject TRIBAL and CORRUPT Jubilee Government together with all their sympathizers in Kisumu.
