Luhya elders opposed to Bungoma governor's impeachment

26 December 2013, 17:15 Samuel Kisika

Bungoma - The Luhya Council of Elders has opposed to Bungoma County representatives bid to impeach governor Ken Lusaka on accusations that he used public funds to finance former Webuye MP, Musikari Kombo, in the recently concluded senatorial by-election.

Patrick Wangamati, the Chairman Luhya Council of Elders and Ford Kenya nominated MP said that reps should embark on the county's development agenda other than dwelling on nonconstructive impeachment politics.

"We don't support the reps plan to oust the governor upon some allegations which Lusaka has denied. We want both Wetang'ula and Lusaka to work together for the benefit of residents who elected them," said Wangamati.

"Lusaka should not be targeted for impeachment after to exercising  his political right of backing Kombo during the recent senatorial by-election," he added.

Wanagamati stated that both the Senator and Governor should put aside their political ideologies and prioritized sufficient service delivery to residents.

He called upon western leaders to turn out in large numbers in the Councils conferences to be convened soon to look into factors affecting the economic growth and development of the region.  

Wangamati held that such stakeholders conferences will enable them address socioeconomic and political challenges that has made the large western province to lag behind economically.
