Ethnicity, nepotism rife in government, residents lament
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.
