By Hon Billow Kerrow (URP elected Senator Mandera County
Agwambo (RAO) paid us a courtesy call at the Mandera County Headquarters yesterday when he visited the town. As a former PM and respected leader in this nation, we gave him due respect and welcomed him to the town as political leaders.
He was accompanied by our respected former deputy speaker Farah Maalim, Hon Abdiqadir Ore, Hon Junet Mohamed and Hon Fatuma. He visited the family of the late Isnino, BP1, the county assembly and held a public rally.
I disagree with a statement issued this afternoon by a group of Jubilee MPs accusing Agwambo of cruel opportunism for visiting Mandera! How unfortunate; they do not represent Mandera.
At least he visited the county to say pole while our President whom we overwhelmingly voted for has not for the past three years in which our county suffered immense hardships, and continue to do so. In the Senate, I work for Jubilee but it is disappointing when our government pays lip service to the suffering of our people.
Thanks Agwambo & team for having the courage to visit Mandera.
