MCAs ac­cuse Ny­ong’o of ‘be­ing en­vi­ous’ and want­ing to de­rail Ranguma’s projects

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Kisumu MCAs have ac­cused Se­na­tor Anyang’ Ny­ong’o of al­legedly be­ing “en­vi­ous” of the de­vel­op­ment projects ini­ti­ated by Gover­nor Jack Ranguma. They are Sa­muel Ong’ow (Ma­sogo Nyang’oma), Caro­line Owen (North Kisumu), Calvince Oraro (Kolwa Cen­tral), Moses Ochele (Kano Waw­idhi) and Mau­rice Aloo (Ahero). They said Ny­ong’o has “de­vel­oped tricks” to de­rail Ranguma, be­cause the se­na­tor lacks a de­vel­op­ment track record to present to vot­ers. They ac­cused Ny­ong’o of paint­ing the county gov­ern­ment as cor­rupt and cre­at­ing di­vi­sions in the assem­bly to block the vis­i­bil­ity of Ranguma’s suc­cess. “Ny­ong’o has been in lead­er­ship for more than 20 years, but there is not even a sin­gle de­vel­op­ment project he can point out that he has ini­ti­ated,” Ong’ow said. They spoke in Koru, Muhoroni sub­county, on Satur­day dur­ing the De­vo­lu­tion Torch tour. Ny­ong’o is seek­ing to un­seat Ranguma.
