All is not well at the County Assembly of Bungoma after Members of the Assembly stormed the office of Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati to seek his audience over his conduct and that of his executive members saying ever since passing the first supplementary budget no project has been implemented.

Led by deputy speaker, who is also the Siboti ward MCA Simiyu Wamusai, over forty MCAs marched along the streets of Bungoma to the office of the Governor singing traditional songs expressing their disappointment in his leadership.

Wamusai said the close of business on Tuesday was the last day for the¬†signing of contracts to kick off projects in their ward and after following the different possible avenues, the last resort was to seek an¬†audience with the Governor. Unfortunately, he didn’t show up prompting them to demonstrate.

He disclosed that they’ll not allow the County Executive Committee members to visit their wards since they will have no business going on there after failing to implement any projects.

His sentiments were echoed by minority leader Francis Chemion who said it is disheartening that dispensaries have no drugs, roads haven’t been rehabilitated yet the Governor is sitting in the office and not taking care of issues.

Deputy Majority leader Juma Nyongesa also weighed in on the issue saying despite having been elected on a Ford Kenya ticket, they’ll not be bound by party affiliations at the expense of development and that the Governor must perform. They were all in agreement that if the situation escalates, they’ll not hesitate to impeach the Governor.
