KISUMU Ranguma-Odinga feud to blame for Cabinet delay


DIFFERENCES between Kisumu governor Jack Ranguma and his deputy Ruth Odinga have been cited as the cause of the delay to name the County’s cabinet.
Multiple sources within the Governor’s office confided to The Star that Ranguma failed to unveil the cabinet last Friday due to feud between him and Odinga.
The sources who declined to be named said Ranguma was keen on rewarding politicians who failed in various seats within the county while Odinga insisted on technocrats maintaining that they were well placed to move the county forward.
The sources added that some area MP’s were equally unhappy with Ranguma accusing him of planning their downfall by plotting to embrace their competitors in the last elections.
Some of the politicians names likely to feature in Ranguma’s cabinet include; Rose Kisia, Ahono Obadha, Victor Nyagaya, Barrack Abonyo and McKodera. Odinga refuted claims that differences between her and Ranguma were the cause of delay to name the cabinet.
“As far as am concerned we are enjoying a cordial relationship with the Governor and are up to the task to ensure we set up a better cabinet to work for the benefit of the Kisumu people,” she said.
She pointed out that they were eying professionals whom would work for the betterment of the Kisumu County and improvement of the people’s lives
