"Thank You For Appointing Our Son In Your Government" Saboat Elders Tells Governor Oparanya

Sabaot Elders from Mt Elgon have appreciated Governor H.E Dr FCPA Wycliffe Oparanya for appointing Mr Dan Kiplang'at Borter as Chief Officer for Economic Planning and Investments.

Speaking after meeting the Governor at his Mabole home, the team led by former councillor Pius Muyei said the appointment of Mr Borter showed that the Governor recognizes and supports the community.

"We express our gratitude to the Governor for appointing our son Dan Kiplang'at Borter as Chief Officer in his Government. We feel greatly honoured as a maginalized community," said Mr Muyei.

He said the Community will support the Governor and his party ODM noting that the party has the interests of the community at heart.

The former councillor said Sabaot community has suffered discrimination since Independence and it is only through ODM Party Leader Hon Raila Odinga that the community has benefitted when he was a Prime Minister in former President Kibaki's Government.

"Our community has never had the position of a cabinet Minister or any other senior position in the Government since independence. We are confident that we will benefit from Raila's Government," he added.

The team asked Hon Odinga to remember the Sabaot community when he wins Presidency asking him to appoint cabinet secretaries, principal secretaries, ambassadors and heads of parastatals from Sabaot.

The Governor appreciated the team for the visit and offering to support Azimio la Umoja a brainchild of Hon Odinga.

"Thank you for declaring support for Azimio la Umoja and Hon Odinga," said Governor Oparanya.

He said they held 16 meetings across the country to popularize Azimio la Umoja and Kenyans endorsed Hon Odinga for presidency.

"I invite you for the big announcement on December 10th which Hon Odinga will use to respond to requests made by Kenyans," he said.

Shinyalu MP Hon Justus Kizito, Chief of Staff Mr Isaac Omungo, CBEF Secretary Rev Willis Owuya, MCAs and other leaders were present.
