Why The Abagusii May Steer Away From Azimio

Azimio flag bearer, Raila Odinga made a visit to Nyamira County last week and gave hefty promises to the Abagusii community, the main occupants of the region. Notably, he mentioned that if elected, he will be retaining Dr Fred Matiang'i in his government. This move obviously won the hearts of many who would want to see one of their own in government. However, professionals from the area seem to have somewhat varying opinions on the issue. Speaking to the Press in Nyamira County, they said they could make an alternative decision on who to back for the Presidential race.

Their sentiments were propelled by the fact that Raila failed to mention the docket that he will be giving Matiang'i if elected. They highlighted that the likes of Munya and Joho have their roles well stipulated but Matiangi's has been left ambiguous. “We have heard and seen Raila naming dockets which could be given to Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and Agriculture minister Peter Munya after winning the presidency and as a community we want him to declare whether he is going to retain Matiang’i in his current docket or not,” advocate Danstan Omari said
