President William Ruto's request to meet with Nyanza leaders in Nairobi before his tour last week was rejected, according to ODM Chairman John Mbadi.
Mbadi stated that the officials met with Interior PS Raymond Omollo on Monday to make preparations for the president's travel.
He claimed that the President had invited regional leaders, and they had complied.
"The MPs from Homa Bay followed me, we met with PS Omollo, and although we were supposed to meet the President in Nairobi, we gently asked if we might meet in Homa Bay instead, and our request was approved."
The meeting, according to Mbadi who is a nominated MP was primarily focused on the development of Homa Bay County.
"We presented a memorandum through our governor and I believe the same was done in other counties." He said
President William Ruto visited Homa Bay, Kisumu, and Siaya counties last week and unveiled development initiatives there.
He continued by outlining his goals for the area and the nation, promising to work hard for both his supporters and detractors.
The President also committed to cooperate with all duly elected officials to enhance Kenyans' quality of life.
