If there is a people that lost the right to demand good leadership, it’s the people of the Homabay.
Just like Mbagathi Hospital in Nairobi, Homabay Hospital is where you take the sick if you want them to die. The chances of returning home outside a coffin (from that medical joke) are slimmer than slim.
You are asked to buy syringe, needles and gloves from Rachuonyo District Hospital (aka Agoro Sare)…the less said about the hospital the better.
In his report to Senate, Awiti claimed he’d dug 3 boreholes in each of the 41 wards. He insisted he was running 3 fishponds per ward at a cost of over 100m per financial year.
While his lies ashamed even the devil, the people of Homabay fell in love with it.
When common sense demanded they replace Awiti, the people of Homabay gave Awiti a second term. Inadvertently (or deliberately) endorsing the looting spree.
When they had a chance to get a senator who could rebuke the looter, they picked a male Oprah…a talk show king whose only achievement is jumping from one local radio station to the next compromised media to “explain” why there would be no election on 26th Oct.
Instead of asking Awiti to stop looting, Moses Kajwang is twenging on TV over things that matter the least to the people Homabay. The less we say about the man from Uganda the better.
Given an opportunity to elect someone who can represent the women of Homabay, they went for a man in skirt (occasionally in funny trousers). Apart from irrigating the then Deputy Speaker with dasani, praying in front of the Supreme Court in EngLuo and standing behind Raila during the hourly pressers, what else has this (wo)man achieved for the women of Homabay? Wanga is a leadership crisis taken too far.
So, the people of Homabay should tone down and enjoy the mediocrity they elected.
And should they be desperately in need of better services, let them call on their object of worship to help. The man they are eager to please even if it means electing leadership jokes like Awiti, Moses and Wanga.
