COUNTY DIASPORA FORUM
Two months ago, non-natives announced plans to field candidates for elections, sparking fresh rivalry between Ranguma and Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga. The non-natives include people from other tribes and Luos who are not from Kisumu’s four clans – Kano, Seme, Nyakach and Kisumu. Odinga and some MCAs attended a meeting convened by the Kisumu County Diaspora Forum. Ranguma has been criticised for allegedly excluding non-natives from appointments. The group said 90 per cent of jobs go to Kano.
