Prof. Tom Ojienda, a senator from Kisumu, has reaffirmed that he will continue working with the Kenya Kwanza administration even though other coalition members have insisted they do not recognize President William Ruto's administration.
While they endeavor to meet the needs of the electorate, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party lawmaker said he will continue to collaborate with President Ruto.
Prof. Ojienda, who has been absent from the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition protests against the Kenya Kwanza government, has declared he won't participate in them since, in his opinion, they will obstruct the completion of development projects in his region.
I acknowledge the administration, and we will keep working with the federal government to develop our region, he declared on Saturday during a political gathering at Kogola Primary School in Nyakach Sub-County.
Prof. Ojienda, who had previously met Eliud Owalo, the cabinet secretary for information, communications and technology in his Asembo house in Siaya County, informed the locals that the close working connection will benefit the area through development projects.
Next week, we will begin a water project at Kogola Primary School as we prepare to address other issues facing the fields of education, health and security, he said.
A group of Kisumu County Assembly members who had been expelled from the ODM party for visiting Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo last week attended the meeting.
The Central Nyakach MCA Vincent Obuya-hosted meeting on Saturday was dubbed "unity for development" and vowed that politics would not derail it.
"Given that the national government controls 85% of the resources, we cannot avoid cooperating with it. We must accept that this is the current government, according to Mr. Obuya.
