Raila Odinga Is The Reason Poverty Reigns In Nyanza - ACK Bishop

Raila Odinga is the reason poverty reigns in Nyanza - ACK Bishop

An Anglican bishop on Thursday, April 5, blamed the soaring poverty levels in Nyanza region on NASA leader Raila Odinga's brand of politics.



Bishop James Ochiel also said lack of development in the area was as a result of ODM party which imposed bad leaders on the voters.



Speaking to the Standard in Homa Bay, the tough speaking Ochiel claimed it was the opposition chief and the party top brass who influenced election of MPs in the area.

“We are not doing very well like the other counties because some leaders were imposed on the people. These leaders know that their loyalty to the party leader, Raila Odinga, is the only thing that will get them re-elected and not development,”



Majority politicians from Nyanza were sponsored to parliament by the Raila-led party and the party ticket is a sure bet to any political seat.



The cleric also took issue with the continued dominance of one party in Nyanza region saying this locked out potentially development conscious leaders who may not be loyal to the Orange party

“Why do we support only one political party,” he paused.
But in a quick rejoinder, Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi dared the man of God to join politics instead of continuously castigating it.


“Kenya is a multi-party democracy. He can form his own party to compete with ODM. He is also free to join elective politics to fill the leadership gap that he is talking about,” he said.


The vocal clergyman joined the long list of leaders who had openly accused Raila for the lack of basic amenities and infrastructural development in the four Nyanza counties.
