Marende, Jirongo accused of plotting to divide Luhyas

04 June 2015, 10:38 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Funyula Member of Parliament, Paul Otuoma has claimed that former national assembly speaker Kenneth Marende and formed Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo are being used to divide the Luhya community ahead of the 2017 general elections.

Otuoma said that the recent move by the two to form a political party is a clear indication that they have ill motives ahead of 2017.

Speaking in Nakuru town Wednesday, Otuoma said that instead of registering a new political outfit, the two should join hands with other leaders from the region to rally residents into registering as voters ahead of 2017.

“Marende was recently given a job by the Jubilee government and he has teamed up with Jirongo to divide the Luhya nation for the benefit of their financiers. Jirongo was with Ruto in YK-92 and he wants to apply the same tactic to divide the western voting bloc,” said Otuoma.

Otuoma said that the Luhya community will not be divided but will move into the 2017 general elections united.

“In 2017, the Luhya community will shock the nation because we will be more untied than ever and those thinking they will scavenge on our votes are mistaken,” he said.
