Uhuru is now seeing the light, says Governor

12 November 2014, 20:56 Jane Zack

Nairobi - Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has said that the push for the Pesa Mashinani referendum campaign is still on, urging locals to continue with signature collection to enable the targeted funds reach the grassroots, despite the fact the National government has increased the funding to the counties to the current 296 billion.

Ojaamong said this on Wednessay, adding that President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration is now yielding slowly to pressure from Governors.

The Busia County boss reiterated that the Jubilee administration has started panicking with the leadership worried on what the combined forces of the governors, Cord and MCAs have in store.

He said, "The National Government started with a total funding of KES 126b to Counties, increased to KES 226B and now it is KES 296B to be disbursed to the grassroots." He said.

Speaking at Kabwodo Primary School in Samia Sub County of Funyula Constituency where he donated 30 plastic chairs and Sh10, 000 in cash to Kabwodo Self Help Group he said that devolution had yielded many fruits urging the Abasamia community to rally behind his administration and his bid for presidency in 2022.

Area MCA John Obwogo told those who lost in the last elections to give the governor time to discharge his duties in peace.

Ojaamong' said the County government will sponsor three students in each ward once the new Medical Training Center will become operational to increase the number of medical staff in the county.
