Former Kuresoi South MP hits at Ruto and Nakuru governor

29 September 2014, 22:59 Chepkwony Robert

Nakuru - Kuresoi South legislator Zakayo Cheruiyot has castigated Nakuru County governor Kinuthia Mbugua over his issuance of an order barring politicians from touring the county amidst current push for Pesa Mashinani by governors’ council and the Okoa Kenya campaign by Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD).

Speaking on Sunday after attending a church service in his constituency, the former Internal Ministry of Internal Security Permanent Secretary (PS) during Moi’s regime accused the governor of what he termed as exercising dictatorial powers.

“Nakuru is a cosmopolitan county hence Governor Kinuthia ought to respect that.People from different tribes have divergent political views and they should be allowed to express their views without being intimidated,” said Cheruiyot.

Cheruiyot said that the governor should embrace democracy and stop using what he termed as dictatorial means in governing the county, adding that the governor has no powers to stop anybody from visiting Nakuru.

“Even the president himself cannot ban anyone from visiting any part of this country,” the lawmaker said.

“The governor should stop behaving like a small god and allow people to exercise their democratic rights.”

Cheruiyot said that he is going to support the calls for a referendum and called on the governor to treat other leaders with the same respect he would like to be treated with.

Mbugua has banned the opposition's referendum campaigns in Nakuru County. He recently confiscated Cord's referendum signature booklets, and vowed to return them to Orange House.

Again, the MP hit on Deputy President William Ruto claiming that he was sabotaging devolution.

‘By opposing calls by some governors to have more money allocated to the counties, the deputy president is clearly showing that he is against the success of devolution.The misunderstandings between Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto and the deputy president are driven by political fear,”  he said.

He added that the deputy president has been opposing almost everything that is intended to benefit devolution in this country,” he said.

“He is a crusader against devolution.”

Citing Ruto’s leading role in the unsuccessful No campaign against the constitution in 2010, Cheruiyot claimed that the deputy president was opposed to devolution from the start and he is doing everything possible to sabotage the running of the county governments.

“Our son is doing all he can to see devolution fail in this country,” the lawmaker claimed
