A United Democratic Alliance (UDA) MCA aspirant in Bungoma County has hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta-led government over the alleged Kazi Mtaani program scandal.

Oscar Wamukota who is eyeing the Khalaba ward MCA seat expressed his disappointment after claims emerged that some individuals in government have embezzled the funds meant to pay the youth participating in the program across the country.

Speaking to the press in Bungoma town on Tuesday June 14, Wamukota who is seeking  to unseat the incumbent Henry Majimbo said that the exercise was meant to keep the youths busy instead of them being idle and involving themselves in unlawful acts like drug abuse and theft.

He went ahead to point fingers at the government for altering the wages that the youths participating in the Kazi Mtaani exercise are supposed to get saying that  they are supposed to be paid enough for everyday use and saving and not peanuts.

Initially, it was alleged by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance allies that the government had slashed the payments from Kshs.1000 to Kshs.450.

On Monday evening , the self-proclaimed head of the non-existent Hustler Nation Intelligence Bureau (HNIB) Dennis Itumbi took to his official social media handles to make the claims.

Itumbi in his social media post also alleged that personal protective equipment such as aprons and gumboots had not been bought, noting that the funds meant to make the purchase had been embezzled.

Wamukota in his media conference went ahead to castigate the brokers involved and called for investigations to be done.

On matters of his preparedness towards the election, Wamukota said that it is time for the youths to take up leadership roles to showcase their capability for they are many in the country and him being one of them, he is braced to make sure that he beats his opponents’ pants down.

“I have been given this opportunity as a youth to lead Khalaba ward and so am asking my fellows to pull their support behind me so that we can bring change in leadership,” he said.

He said that once elected he will use the bottom up approach to uplift the common Mwananchi dubbed as ‘hustlers’ involving themselves in small businesses to rise.

Raila when launching his manifestos to the Kenyans, he said that once elected he will revive the cotton industry saying that the importation of Mitumba has killed the textile industry in the country and Kenyans can get good clothes from within to sell, the remarks that revoked mixed reactions among the people.

“You are making us to use the taxpayer’s money to pay for the handshake and this Kenyan are not fools, come 9th of August we will stop you on the ballot,” he said

Tongaren MP Dr. David Eseli who was also present called out the Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula to stop misleading the people of Bungoma by imposing leaders on them saying that he can choose where to take his one vote but let the people choose the leaders that they want.

The DAP-K party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi also condemned Wetangula for the remarks he made while escorting the senate speaker Ken Lusaka who was presenting his papers to the IEBC on 5th where he said that his team is ready to get physical during this campaign when need arises.

“We are not going to be shaken by any threats and if anyone thinks that he can engage in violence during this period then he should look for people who can condone that and not us. We as DAP-K and AZIMIO One Kenya coalition at large, we advocate for peaceful campaign period and elections,” he said

Farmers across Bungoma county and Kenya at large have been encouraged to consider practicing agroforestry as part of their farming.

Speaking on Monday, June 6, 2022, during the World Environmenta Day celebrations at Kimaeti in Bungoma County which was themed “ONLY ONE EARTH,” the director of water, tourism and natural resources in Bungoma County government Robert Sawa said that farmers should embrace tree planting for it does not only improve the beauty of nature but also helps in controlling the climate change.

“The global warming is mainly caused by us as individuals, we emit a lot of gases into the atmosphere and this results to the earth warming and it is only the trees which cool down those temperatures but it is very unfortunate that instead the trees are being scrapped off because in the last few decades the curve has really gone down,” he said.

He went ahead to note that the percentage of trees in the country is very low compared to previous years and therefore asking the farmers to plant many trees and also suggesting that they can focus on income generating trees like fruit trees, Bamboo, Blue gum and many others that can generate income in different ways.

His sentiments were echoed by Beth Omae, the zonal coordinator for Rift-Western Kenya zone for PELUM Kenya who said that it is everyone’s responsibility to take care of the earth for there is no other alternative earth.

Omae went ahead to note that as PELUM Kenya, they encourage farmers to practice organic farming by using organic fertilizers and pesticides and that most of those organic fertilizers generate from the trees citing the need of having many trees around.

The Bungoma senatorial race is now getting hotter after various aspirants being cleared to battle it out with the incumbent Moses Wetang’ula.

Outgoing Bungoma Deputy Governor Charles Ngome Kibanani has vowed to floor the Ford Kenya party leader in the first round of the August 9 polls.

Speaking at the IEBC offices in Bungoma after being cleared to run for the senate seat, Professor Ngome said that he is ready to battle for the position and he is certain that he will unseat Wetangula.

Ngome went ahead to say that Wetangula has been the senator for Bungoma for two terms now and he has not given the people of Bungoma any solid reason to be reelected again this year, noting that it is time for him to be sent away for Bungoma to grow.

“The journey to send Wetangula home has officially begun and we are not going to look back until we achieve that. Bungoma deserves a better leadership system and leaders who are selfless and Wetangula is nothing close to that,” he said.

He went ahead to note that the sugar bill that was tabled by Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi has been sitting in senate since the year 2020 saying that if Wetangula had a good will for the people of Bungoma where farming is the backbone of their income, he should have fought for that bill to be passed.

“If given this opportunity to become the senator of this county, my first agenda will be to look into the sugar bill that has been delayed in the senate by my opponent who is the current sitting senator. It was passed in the national assembly and it has been in the senate for concurrence because farming is a devolved function but has been stuck there since 2020,” he said.

Ngome went further to rubbish the opinion poll that was conducted by Mizani which showed that Wetangula was leading at 72.1% while he was at 16.4% saying that the true one will be revealed on 9th of August.

He said that Wetangula is paying people to conduct the polls in his favor and therefore asked the people to ignore those polls saying that the real ones will be on the ballot.

Ngome is running on a Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K party ticket

Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has dragged Azimio La Umoja Presidential candidate Raila Odinga into his car saga that had sent him into hideout.

The controversial lawmaker had early this week ran into hiding after police officers stormed his Nasianda home in Kimilili constituency after they got tip off from the members of the public that the lawmaker had turned a CDF vehicle into a campaign vehicle.

The officers impounded the vehicle, a ford ranger double cabin pick up belonging to Kimilili CDF that the lawmaker had already rebranded with UDA party colors.

He had also fixed the vehicle with fake registration number plates.

But on Wednesday May 25, the lawmaker came out of his hiding and joined a UDA campaign trail in Western Kenya that is being led by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula.

Didmus called on the government and the police to instead go after Raila whom he alleged that has been using government vehicles when he has never been elected to hold any government office.

Speaking in Sirisia market during the Kenya Kwanza rally, the angry lawmaker said that instead of the police following him up for changing the government vehicle’s number plate and branding it with United UDA colors for campaign purposes, they should shift their focus on Raila Odinga whom he alleged that he is using over 20 government vehicles for his campaign.

The police had on Tuesday 24th of May 2022 raided his home to get the car but they were denied access to the compound but forced their way in and took the car and drove it to the police station in Bungoma town.

Barasa went ahead to say that he bought the car as an MP in his constituency and he has every right to use it in whatever way that he wants.

“56 police were sent to my home because I am using the CDF car, I am the sitting MP, I was elected by the people and so I have the right to use the car and also the police should target the real criminals like Raila Odinga who are using government vehicles and yet they have never been elected anywhere and instead he swore himself in which is a big offense,” he said.

The ruling Jubilee party has come out to address concerns over Sirisia MP John Waluke’s fate as the country heads to August general elections.

The lawmaker is facing a corruption case in court and there were rumors that he has not been cleared by his party to defend his seat in August over the graft case.

The Jubilee party through its Bungoma branch county office manager Edward Lubakaya has, however, rubbished the rumors saying that Waluke will be on the ballot.

While issuing the certificates to Jubilee aspirants at the party’s office in Kanduyi, Lubakaya said that Waluke was cleared and already has the certificate and also serving as the Jubilee party chairman in Bungoma county.

He went ahead to tell Waluke’s opponents to brace themselves for a tough fight.

Waluke was in June 2020 convicted of fraud involving Ksh.313 million in shady maize dealings with the National Cereals Produce Board (NCPB) which led to many concluding that he won’t be cleared to defend his seat on 9th of August 2022

Lubakaya further said Jubilee party in Bungoma county will throw its weight behind governor Wycliffe Wangamati’s gubernatorial bid since they all fall under AZIMIO One Kenya coalition and so it won’t have a candidate at that position.

“I want to make it clear that we as Jubilee party Bungoma county, we are going to support governor Wycliffe Wangamati, we won’t have a candidate on that level because we will gang behind Wangamati to see him reelected,” he said

One of the aspirants Dr Ferdinand Nyongesa who is seeking to unseat the DAP-K party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi of Kanduyi Constituency as the Member of Parliament expressed his confidence in Jubilee party saying that he is now ready to face his competitors fully.

“My supporters should now stop worrying and listening to  rumors that I have stepped down. I am in the race and let my competitors start parking to clear the space because I am coming with a different style,” he said.

Bungoma County health workers have threatened to down their tools should the Wycliffe Wangamati-led government fail to address their concerns.

They have called out the county government for alleged negligence saying that it has failed to keep the promises that they made to them during the past industrial action.

The county government had promised to address the issues that the nurses were facing but since then nothing has happened.

Speaking to the press in Bungoma town on Tuesday, the secretary general of Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) Bungoma branch George Barasa said that the county government during the past industrial action promised to look into the issues that the nurses were facing including the payment of enhanced risk allowance for all the nurses in the county, promoting the redesignation of  nurses and confirmation of those who have been employed on permanent terms of service but it is yet to be done.

“As the hospitals across the county continue to suffer with a shortage of nurses, the county government is just quiet yet they even conducted an interview in November last year and the county public service board is yet to produce the results of that particular exercise.

“There are even some of our staffs who have exited service and there is no replacement hence making the services in health facilities very bad,” he said

Barasa went ahead to say that the county government has been having meetings with them but nothing is being generated from those meetings since their issues have never been addressed.

“We are asking them as the union in this county, we want them to implement this issues that we have agreed with them fully, and we are saying the word is fully because the count time for 14 days that we are issuing this strike starts today, once this notice elapses, members will pull out of the service and we won’t be having services in public facilities,” he said
