Tachoni residents and professionals from Webuye East Constituency have given divergent views concerning the appointment of CECs and advisors announced on Tuesday by Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka as they appreciated him for awarding two slots to Tachonis.
Dr. Jaluo Murunga, a lecturer at University of Eldoret expressed his contentment for the appointing of Dr. David Wamamili Wanyonyi as the CEC for Education and Vocational Training and Josephat Kangale as the County Senior Liason Officer saying due to their capabilities and experience they have they will deliver in their respective roles for the good of Bungoma people.
Dr. Murunga revealed that Dr. Wamamili taught him when he was pursuing his First Degree in Moi University, Masters Degree and Doctor of Philosophy, therefore said with his vast experience in education sector he is sure he will steer education standards in Bungoma County to another level.
He however, thanked Governor Lusaka for believing in the two, as he promised him that as Tachoni nation they will support him in implementing his agenda and promises he made to Bungoma people during campaign period so as to initiate different development projects in the area.
Dr. Geoffrey Chemwa of Jomo Kenyatta University and Technology appreciated the two for being among the appointees to serve in Governor Lusaka’s government as he appealed to the Governor to consider Tachoni people again in the remaining slots of Chief Officers and Departmental Directors.
Waswa Waluvengo, Tachoni youth leader besides thanking Governor Lusaka for appointing the two, had dissenting views where he said he was dissatisfied with the appointments saying Tachoni sub-tribe voted overwhelmingly for him contributing to his win in the August polls therefore deserve more than what he has given them.
He urged Governor Lusaka to consider the clan in the appointing of Chief Officers slots where he said awarding them 4 or 5 slots will be of great significance.
