Nairobi - Uasin Gishu Deputy Governor should apologize for ejecting British Diplomats from an Eldoret Hotel, Homa Bay Women Representative Gladys Wanga has said.
Wanga said the deputy governor,Daniel Chemmo,was out of order in the move and should apologize to the diplomats.
She opined that Chemmo took the move following the numerous condemning statements that had been made by politicians after the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) rejected Kenya’s deferral request.
“Politicians affiliated to the Jubilee are poisoning Kenyans’ minds with the ICC issue. It is those sentiments about the International Court that could have made the deputy governor flash out British senior officials from his region,” Wanga stated.
She asked the politicians to stop extensive comments on the cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.
She said Britain has strong ties with Kenya and has expressed interests of extending the long term relationship noting that Britain is a big development partner to Kenya.
The MP further asked County Governors to concentrate creating job opportunities and take advantage of devolved system of governance saying with the new system, there will be no cases of marginalization.
She said Kenyans will only feel significance of County Governments if they benefit economically, warning that if their expectations will not be met majority may push for its abolition.
Wanga made the remarks during a radio interview on Monday night.
