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.
