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.
