Kenyatta is everybody’s president – Luo elders


President Uhuru Kenyatta

A section of Luo elders have come out to declare their allegiance to Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidency, asking him to lead all communities as he is everyone’s Commander-In-Chief.

The elders, led by their chairman Nyandiko Ongadi, were addressing a press conference at Kendu Bay on Saturday.

They included representatives from the various counties in the Luo-dominated Nyanza region.

Among those present at the presser were Peter Mbogo from Migori; Phoebe Akinyi from Siaya; and  Joram Okola from Homa Bay.

“Kenyatta is the president of everybody in Kenya. I call on him to consider the Luo, like other communities, in jobs and national resources distribution,” said. Nyandiko.

They also asked President Kenyatta to consider Luos in state appointments and resource distribution, and asked the community not to brand them, or anyone appointed by President Kenyatta, as rebels.

“Anybody appointed for a state job from this community should take that opportunity to develop Kenyans. We don’t want to hear anybody being referred to as a traitor,” reiterated Joram Okola.
