Alego Usonga Member of Parliament Sam Atandi has sent out a stern message to ODM governors over what he termed constant embarrassment in BBI rallies.
Speaking to the Standard newspaper on February 23, 2020, Atandi urged the ODM Governors to keep off BBI rallies due to what he called their poor grasp of what the report was all about.
“I am asking all Luo Nyanza Governors to go back to work. You have zero content for BBI national conversations. After all, Baba has already read the report.
“It is shameful to attend all the forums, but when allowed to speak, the only thing you get right is greetings. Zero language, zero content.” he stated.Alego Usonga MP Samuel Atandi struggles with a police officer after being barred from accessing the JKIA on November 16, 2017.Daily Nation
Atandi proposed that the governors should select their Kisumu counterpart Anyang Nyong'o, who he intimated seemed to have a grasp of what the report was all about.
This, he stated, would be a proper remedy in preventing the watering down of the BBI report through irrelevant speeches and commentaries.
“It seems it is only Nyong’o who has an idea of what BBI is all about and should represent them to end these weekly embarrassments our people are treated to,” he stated.
Atandi insisted that some of the governors from the region had not moved on from events of the past and thus addressed matters that were of no consequence in the present.
He fingered Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga for revisiting ODM leader Raila Odinga's controversial loss in the the 2017 polls where he accused Jubilee party of stealing the ODM votes.
“We have moved on. We are now part of the new Kenya. The past is gone. Let Rasanga keep off issues like who stole votes and whose votes were stolen in 2017.
"Our people have become laughing stock on social media following these off-topic remarks from our elected governors and we must end the circus now," he concluded.Siaya Governor Cornell Rasanga and his Finance Director Daniel Nyonje respond to audit queries at Parliament on August 6, 2018.The Standard
