Turkana Governor, Josephat Nanok, has accused his deputy, Peter Lokoel Ekai, of being unsupportive of his government and its initiatives.

The Governor claims that his deputy has disowned him by not appearing in his rallies and other public functions in the county.

Nanok, who was speaking in Kalokol, Turkana over the weekend, said that the actions by his deputy speak volumes.

While drumming support for the opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD), Nanok said that he will continue executing his mandate and fulfilling his promises to the people of Turkana despite the rebellion.

He accused his deputy of turning into a rebel and for allegedly teaming up with Turkana MPs to unseat him in the 2017 polls.

“All the MPs are slaves and are not working for the benefit of Turkana people. I am not bothered by their plans to unseat me,” said Nanok.
