Abagusii fault Uhuru jobs sharing

Leaders from the Abagusii community have faulted Uhuru Kenyatta’s recent appointments in the public service saying they only benefitted one family.
Led by Chama cha Uzalendo national vice chairman Richard Onsongo, the leaders said that several appointments done by the government have only benefitted the Abanyaribari clan at the expense of others.
The leaders who included a parliamentary candidate for the Bomachoge Chache constituency David Michoti pointed out that there were some clans which have not been appointed to any senior position since independence.
“It appears that Bomachoge is not part of Kenya and it is high time we reconsider our political stand so that we can equally enjoy the fruits of devolution,” said Onsongo.
Onsongo accused elected leaders from the area of failing to be united so that they can speak with one voice and challenged the electorate to vote them out come the next general elections.
Michoti said that Bomachoge clan lags behind in all sorts of development ranging from poor state of roads, lack of water and electricity which will be given priority if he wins the area’s parliamentary seat.
The leaders asked the county government led by governor James Ongwae to balance the allocation of resources and general employment so that citizens can enjoy the fruits of devolution.
