Senator Anyang Nyong’o apologises to Governor Kidero
Kisumu Senator Anyang Nyang’o has apologised to Nairobi City County Governor Dr Evans Kidero about the scuffle with Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko during Senate hearing two weeks ago.
Speaking during the funeral of Regina Odongo, daughter of Nairobi City County Executive, Tom Odongo, which was held in Kanyakwar, Nyong’o said that the incident was unfortunate adding that thorough measures will be put in place to ensure discipline is absolved in the Senate.
“The Speaker of Senate is currently away on official duty, but when he comes back he will be able to give direction on the necessary steps which will be taken to ensure order and discipline is restored in the Senate. We all know that every market place has its mad man,” said Nyong’o.
In his address, Nairobi City County Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke urged Senator Sonko to “relax” and let elected leaders work until 2017.
In response, Governor Kidero called on leaders to shun divisive politics and focus on uniting the country.
“Kenyans should strive to live in love and unity. We have one blood. Blood has one color which is red. I don’t understand why we don’t practice unity,” Kidero said.
The governor also joined calls for the removal of IEBC commissioners, saying it is the only way to ensure a free and fair election.
He further noted that the governors are ready to obey Senate summonses as a show of respect to devolution.
“We are ready to be interrogated. We will obey all summonses and will only appear if we are assured that we will be treated with decorum and respect,” he said.
The Governor called upon investors in Kisumu City to not move their businesses, encouraging them to stay in the City as this would provide employment to the many city residents.
