Lo­cal lead­ers urge Ojaa­mong’ to de­liver dur­ing his last term in of­fice

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - COUNTY - BY GAITANO PESSA

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.
