Orengo accuses past regimes of marginalizing Luos

10 March 2014, 10:36 Oduor Omondi

Siaya - Siaya senator, James Orengo has attributed the high poverty levels witnessed in Nyanza region to marginalization by past governments.

Orengo has accused past regimes in Kenya of consistentlymarginalizing the Luo community in terms of education, employment and development thus making the region as the hotbed of opposition politics for decades.

Speaking during a fundraising drive in aid of Koru Girls Secondary School in Muhoroni, the Senator described such marginalization as 'a bad thing which breeds political hatred that takes long to heal'.

“Let us bring Kenya together through promoting national unity among our communities. We must move forward as one entity by establishing a fairer and most stable nation,” he told the gathering presided over by Nairobi Governor, Dr. Evans Kidero.

But deputy Speaker of the national Assembly, Joyce Laboso described devolution as the best thing that ever happened in Kenya notingit has ensured that each of the 47 Counties have their own resources which helped reduce the levels of marginalization under the Jubilee regime.

However, Laboso admitted that the only area of concern could be in the aspects of appointment to public offices but expressed optimism that with time, all communities would be catered for and a reflection of national outlook struck under President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Tinderet MP, Melly Kibiwott asked the Government to take serious measures against sugar dumping so that the economic status of farmers could be made even better.

He reassured that as the Vice Chair of Education in Parliament, he will ensure Kenyan children access quality education including the much anticipated laptop project which will reach all corners of the republic as promised by the Jubilee Government.
