Activists call for the arrest of Majority Leader

02 February 2015, 14:14 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - Kisumu Non-Indigenous People’s Forum (KNIPF) has called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of Kisumu County Assembly Leader of Majority, Samuel Ong’ow, following his attack on a County Government worker last week.

In a statement, KNIPF activist led by the Chair of Kisumu Residents Voice Association, Audi Ogada said Ong’ow should face legal action for physically attacking a County Government staff last week as he demanded for office space for Patrick Ouya.

Members of the forum condemned the conduct of some Members of County Assembly (MCAs) and the Executive arm, citing the need to observe Article 73 of the Constitution of Kenya which outlines the responsibilities of leadership.

Last week, Kisumu Deputy Governor, Ruth Odinga also criticized the incident and urged county leaders to observe decorum in their actions.

Speaking on behalf of the forum, Ogada urged MCAs to leave the wrangles witnessed at the County Assembly last year and move forward by working with the reinstated Speaker, Ann Adul.

However, he advised the MCAs to follow the right procedure and strictly observe the law should they opt to impeach the Speaker again.
