Bomet MCAs slam MP Ng’eno for vis­its that di­vide

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Emu­rua Dikiir MP Jo­hana Ng’eno should stop med­dling in the af­fairs of Bomet county and in­stead con­cen­trate on is­sues af­fect­ing his peo­ple at the con­stituency, some county MCAs have said. Emu­rua Dikiir is in Narok county. Ng’eno has part­nered with Bomet Gov­er­nor Isaac Rutto in lob­by­ing for the newly formed Chama Cha Mashinani.

The MCAs al­lied to the Ju­bilee Party yes­ter­day said the MP’s many vis­its add no value to devel­op­ment, but “sow seeds of dis­cord” among politi­cians and res­i­dents in var­i­ous po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

They spoke to the press out­side the county assem­bly. They said Ng’eno has be­come a po­lit­i­cal tourist in Bomet, yet he has not ad­dressed the many so­cial and eco­nomic prob­lems that ail Emu­rua Dikiir which are a threat to peace.

“We are dis­mayed by his fre­quent vis­its, be­hav­ing as if we have sought his ser­vices to dic­tate to our peo­ple which party they should join,” Ndarawetta MCA Josphat Kirui said.

The more than 15 MCAs claimed Bomet res­i­dents are now sharply di­vided as a re­sult of be­ing mis­led by ‘out­sider’ politi­cians who preach hate.
