Governor threatens to sue rival for implicating him in corruption

06 September 2016, 10:58 Oduor Omondi

Homa Bay - Homa Bay County Governor, Cyprian Awiti has threatened to sue one of his rivals for defamation.

Governor Cyprian Awiti intends to sue Kasipul MP Oyugi Magwanga, who is eyeing Homa Bay gubernatorial seat for allegedly linking his administration to corruption.

Awiti who has joined forces with his Deputy Hamilton Orata to tame Magwanga, accused the legislator of peddling fake documents purporting to support the corruption claims.

While dismissing Magwangas’ allegations, the Governor claimed that the latest independent survey conducted by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) gave Homa Bay County a clean bill of health.

“EACC is the highest reputable institution in Kenya to investigate corruption yet its latest report indicates that there was no evidence of corruption in Homa Bay County. How can somebody complain that my leadership is corrupt?” posed Awiti.

He said those pointing a finger at his government over corruption were malicious individuals who were envious of his development track record.

Speaking at Omiro dispensary in Kabondo Kasipul constituency, the Governor said he will sue Magwanga and anybody else who peddles falsehood about corruption in his government.

“Magwanga is not an EACC official hence he must stop peddling rumours about corruption in my Government. He will soon have his day in court as a consequence to his behavior,” said the Governor.

He challenged Magwanga to go to court if he feels he has substantial evidence to implicate him with corrupt dealings.
