Nyamira Kenya 21 May 2021…………..West Mugirango Member of Parliament (M.P) Vincent Kemosi has claimed that his support for Deputy President (DP) William Ruto is the reason behind the disruption of Friday’s event by administrators and police where he intended to launch bursary disbursement program.
The bursary launch was supposed to take place in Rangenyo Primary school
playground in Nyamaiya Ward, Nyamira South Sub County.
According to Nyamira South Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) Mr. Julius
Otieno, “all public gatherings are prohibited and this is no exception, we should not politicize anything even when one wants to break the law in open day light, we expect him (Kemosi) to lead by example because he knows the consequences of breaking laws,”
Addressing journalists from his residence, Kemosi termed the cancellation of the event as witch hunt due to his strong stand on supporting DP Ruto’s next year (2022) presidential ambition.
He said that he was barred from meeting his people while his other colleagues in the same county were allowed to hold public gatherings, even after meeting the laid down protocols.
“Today’s turn of events has nothing to do with corona virus prevention, its pure witch hunt and everyone can clearly see that am being choked for my strong support of the DP’s ambitions. We have seen other MPs hold public gatherings across Nyamira but it is a crime if Kemosi holds one to help our children with school fees”, said Kemosi.
Kemosi, who is DP Ruto’s point man from the county, disputed claims that the cancellation of yesterday’s event was due to a member registration exercise, to the newly formed United Democratic Alliance Party (UDA), which was allegedly taking place at the same venue.
The M.P claimed CS Fred Matiang’i was behind woes facing Gusii leaders
supporting William Ruto and that he (CS) would be ashamed for ordering the disruption of the Friday’s education event.
“The DCC told me that I should request permission from the Interior CS so as to hold the event. Until when will he (Matiang’i) stifle those with divergent opinions?
He has a PhD and therefore he should not kill the careers and ambitions of the young children by ordering the call-off of the event as purported by the
administrator. Whether it means standing on the waters to launch the bursaries, so be it. Our children must learn”, said Kemosi.
Later he launched the Ksh.34 million National Government Constituency
Development Fund (NG-CDF) bursary at the CDF hall
Over 6,000 students in both secondary schools and higher institutions are set to benefit from the fund.
