Eth­nic­ity, nepo­tism rife in gov­ern­ment, res­i­dents lament

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nyanza -

Homa Bay and Mig­ori res­i­dents have lamented the poor ser­vices in the na­tional and county gov­ern­ments. They said eth­nic­ity and nepo­tism are rife.

They spoke on Wed­nes­day dur­ing the African Peer Re­view Mech­a­nism con­sul­ta­tive fo­rum in Homa Bay town. The res­i­dents, led by the Luo Coun­cil of El­ders chair­men Nyandiko On­gadi (Homa Bay) and John Omollo (Mig­ori), said there is need to ad­dress in­ef­fi­cien­cies in ser­vices for de­vo­lu­tion to make an im­pact.

On­gadi ac­cused the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion of skewed lead­er­ship, say­ing peo­ple per­ceived as op­po­si­tion sup­port­ers are dis­crim­i­nated against. “Nyanza has qual­i­fied men and women who can pos­i­tively im­pact Kenya’s econ­omy if given the op­por­tu­nity. But we won­der why the Ju­bilee gov­ern­ment has re­sorted to a skewed ap­proach in mak­ing ap­point­ments,” he said.
