State House defends Migori delegation, talks

18 September 2014, 13:26 William Korir

Nairobi - State House has defended the visit by a delegation from Migori, saying that it is not politically instigated.

The delegation, led by Governor Zachary Okoth Obado will take an official apology from Migori residents to president Uhuru Kenyatta over the trouble caused during the president's visit to the county last week.

The Governor and a large group of residents were in Nairobi Wednesday morning, but the meeting was rescheduled to Thursday instead.

They arrived in ten buses, with the group set to offer an apology to the president over the treatment he received last week during a visit to the County.

The president was heckled by angry youth and shoes thrown in his direction during an anti- Malaria campaign.

He has since blamed politicians for the melee that occured on the day.

His adviser Joshua Kutuny says that the agenda on the day will be development oriented and not political.

" The visit is purely to talk development matters, Kutuny said of the visit.

" Reports of other motives in the meeting are way off the mark and should be treated just as speculation, he added.

Vincent Okello, a teacher from Migori and part of the delegation headed to State House said that theirs was a trip of significance.

" We are here to apologize to the president and to assure him that the people of Migori are saddened by the events of last week and hope for forgiveness, he said.

Obado had last week asked police to jail those behind the trouble caused.

Five persons have been arrested by police over the matter with a number of MPs also questioned over the matter.

The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has also apologized for the trouble on the day, even though party leader Raila Odinga has yet to comment on it.
