Raila brokers peace between Kisumu MCAs and Executive

20 April 2015, 21:41 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga over the weekend presided over a reconciliatory meeting between Kisumu County MCAs and County Executive aimed at resolving persistent wrangles pitting the two parties.

Odinga noted that the County with 49 MCAs has had continued wrangles which prompted the CORD coalition to form a task force headed by its Executive Officer, Oduor Ong’wen to establish the root cause. Majority of MCAs were elected on the ODM ticket hence CORD’s concern.

He said ODM is at the helm in 24 counties across the country and expressed hope that Kisumu would serve as an example for the success of devolution, thus the need for MCAs to patch up their differences and work together for quality service delivery in collaboration with the executive.

“All political parties including Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) have internal problems, and so it’s our business as CORD to ensure that the 24 Counties are run properly,” he said.

The ODM leader further cautioned the MCAs that the electorate will judge their performance at the end of their tenure.

Odinga, accompanied by Governor Jack Ranguma, Senator Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o, Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga and Nyando MP Fred Outa revealed that the task force report unearthed and discussed problems afflicting the County Assembly and the Executive.

Governor Ranguma termed Odinga’s inaugural visit to Kisumu County Assembly as historic and an encouragement to both the MCAs and Executive to work together.

All the while, a large crowd waited peacefully for Odinga to address them on the outcome of the meeting. He told the crowd that the meeting had reached an amicable solution to the persistent wrangles and promised them better service delivery from both MCAs and the executive.
