Local leaders urge Ojaamong’ to deliver during his last term in office
A section of Busia politicians have asked Governor Sospeter Ojaamong' (left) to pull up his socks and ensure he delivers in his second term in office.
Led by Funyula MP Wilberforce Mudenyo and his Nambale counterpart John Bunyasi, the leaders said they unanimously supported Mr Ojaamong' in the 2017 General Election on condition that he would address the numerous challenges facing residents in the border county.
Mr Mudenyo cited poor health services and acute water shortage as key challenges across the seven sub-counties.
He asked the county boss to embark on fulfilling his election pledges if he wants to leave a legacy as pioneer governor.
The law maker also asked the governor to unite all tribes in the county.
Recently, Mr Ojaamong' led a Teso delegation to Deputy President William Ruto's home in Sugoi, Uasin Gishu County, a visit that angered local leaders since it didn't represent the face of the county.
Mr Bunyasi, who has announced plans to succeed Mr Ojaamong', raised his concerns over dwindling education standards in region.
“I urge education stakeholders and other leaders to sit down and identify where the problem lies and find lasting solutions that will steer our great county back to glory,” he said.
