In recent times there have been retrogressive statements by a section of leaders from Western Kenya that former Prime minister Raila Odinga has neglected the Mulembe community.
The leaders have accused Raila of concentrating on development projects only in his Luo Nyanza backyard.
These statements are divisive and controversial as all projects unveiled or mentioned at the recent Madaraka day celebrations by Raila and President Kenyatta will not only serve the people of Nyanza but the whole of Kenya and East African at large.
None if the projects are owned by meant to serve Kisumu county alone as they are meant and will serve the entire nation.
The revamped port of Kisumu will help the economy of Kenya by connecting Kenya to east African Nations in Lake Victoria and the horn of Africa through the Nile river.
The meter gauge railway will not stop at Kisumu but will be rehabilitated up to Butere. Another railway line will run from Nakuru to Eldoret, these towns are not in Nyanza but Rift valley.
Also what should be noted is that these madaraka day launching of projects is not unique to Kenya as the same thing happened in Kakamega and Kisii counties.
