It is important to debunk the oft repeated LIE by the Luo Leadership that President Uhuru has marginalized the Luo. Last year, I was in the team led by Interior PS Karanja Kibicho that visited major National Government projects in Luo Nyanza.
President Uhuru, between 2013 and 2017 invested massive amounts in Luo Nyanza. Here we were in Migori together with then Public Works PS Dr Paul Maringa at the Migori County Headquarters that stalled during the Coalition Government, and was revived by President Uhuru. The Houses in Migori are some of the best in the Country, built by National Government Money. The Roads in Kisumu, Siaya and Homa Bay- all built by National Government money are some of the best in Africa. The Siaya- Nyadorera- Ruambwa Road connecting Siaya to the Busia Border that had stalled for 15 years was completed by President Uhuru.
The only thing Uhuru did, was to deny Raila the chance to corruptly eat National Government Money, by pushing proxies in Tenders. That is when the “Marginalization” talk started.
It is important that these lies are debunked.
