Wetang’ula plans Friday rally to address Wheelbarrow saga

16 September 2015, 17:06

Bungoma - Plans are at advanced stage by the Ford Kenya party leader to address a rally at Bungoma posta grounds on the alleged misappropriation of public resources in the County government.

The rally is allegedly meant to address the alleged misappropriation of public resources through the recent purchase of expensive wheelbarrows.

In a short message seen by News24, the Bungoma Senator said they are planning a 'mother of all rallies' but did not divulge more information.

However, News24 has established that Wetang’ula has not been contented with the management style of Lusaka.

Addressing the press two weeks ago in his Kanduyi home, the Ford Kenya party leader accused Lusaka of running the corruption ring which has denied locals development.

“The County government had set a target of KES 1.4 billion revenue collection each month but we are told they are collecting only KES 182 million monthly. What we know is that these people are collecting more money and pocketing them and this has crippled development in the County,” said Wetang’ula.

He called on Lusaka to explain why he had failed to initiate tangible projects yet the Treasury allocates the County a lot of money.

“We are the third most populated County hence we receive billions each financial year but the results are not visible; let the money we allocate benefit the locals,” he said.

However, Lusaka dismissed the planned rally as a recipe for incitement, chaos and the one that is meant to cause animosity.

“We don’t expect elected leaders to hold rallies at such a time of the year because it will incite residents against the leadership and cause bad blood and hatred for nothing. Elected leaders represent the locals and they should meet and talk not organizing rallies to incite them,” said Lusaka.

Bungoma County New Ford Kenya Chairman, Nyongesa said that the planned rally is causing animosity and raising the political temperatures for nothing.

“What do they want to address? Everything has been contained and people expect services not political rallies; let them give the Governor time to fulfill his pledges,” said Nyongesa.
