Amani National Party (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has accused the government of double standards when dealing with the directive on social gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mudavadi said there factions that are allowed to plan and hold their meetings without interruption, and other factions their meetings are interrupted by the police.
He mentioned a case where a faction from Western region always holds meetings across the five Counties without interference in the name of pushing for a development agenda in the region, while other factions meetings are burned by security agencies.
The ANC leader was speaking at a meeting held at Emuhaya MP Omboko Milemba’s residence on Saturday, where he was accompanied by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula and other leaders. Mudavadi noted that there are leaders from Western who are being used to divide the region, sentiments which were echoed by Moses Wetangula.
He reiterated that they are more determined to fight such forces who are bent to bring confusion in the region.
Wetangula accused Governors from the region of funds misappropriation noting that no major projects have been initiated in some of the Counties. “These Governors are crisscrossing the region pushing for a development agenda and yet we have not seen any tangible projects in some of the Counties,” he said.
