ODM criticized in Mogotio

05 November 2012, 14:17 Steve Wambugu

As Prime Minister Raila Odinga struggles to win the Kalenjin vote, the ODM party on Monday came under sharp criticism from residents of Mogotio town in Baringo county over what they termed as "unfair treatment" even after voting for the party overwhelmingly in 2007.

The ODM re- loaded team led by sports Minister Ababu Namwamba had visited Mogotio while on transit to Marigat on a meet the people tour.

The team was taken to task to explain why the party leader Raila Odinga had fallen out with other pentagon members making the party " lose popularity  in the Rift Valley".

They openly proclaimed that "reputable politicians" had failed to take control of the party making new comers shake them hence exodus of politicians like William Ruto.

They called on the PM to put his house in order and reflect on past mistakes in order to have a firm grip of the Kalenjin vote.

Assistant minister Manson Nyamweya and nominated Mp Millie Odhiambo who attended the meeting asked community to stop reflecting on past issues and instead focus on the future in order to attain meaningful development .

He said that issues to do with land were critical for residents of Rift Valley adding that ODN will critically address such issues should it take over the leadership of this country. 

Energy Assistant minister Magerer Langat said that should Eldoret North MP William Ruto work with Prime Minister, he stood a better chance of being elected President once Raila relinquishes power, sentiments echoed by Namwamba.

Namwamba said that it was surprising to see that despite the PM having given many cabinet posts to Rift Valley MPs, residents of the vast province are yet to benefit from the same .

He challenged  the electorate to judge leaders by their deeds come the electioneering period.
