Homa bay Senator  Moses  Kajwang  as chided governors from Nyanza for using the Kisii town BBI conference to fla off their floundering political careers and ide beind poor development record.

Kajwang’ said some governors, who have taken over the summit from other leaders, will use it to revive their political career.

His statement comes as supremacy battle brewed ahead of planning between governors and other elected leaders.

Kajwang’ said  most Nyanza governors   are serving their  second term in office  and have no development track record.

“Some  of our  county  bosses  have been absconding  duties as a result  of their  insatiable  appetite  for political  rallies,  they   love  political conventions than  anything else,” he said.

The chairman  of the senate’s  Public Accounts  Committee  said  governors  have h jacked  the  event’s  program    to get  undeserved  credit.

“The BBI  is a Raila – Uhuru  thing , and it’s  a  thing of the people  thus they should not  attempt to hijack it to  jumpstart  their dwindling  political careers,” he added.

 The senator  said that when president Uhuru Kenyatta  had a  convention  of the Mount Kenya  Region  in  Sagana  last  year,  governors  were  not in the forefront saying  governors  should  not take advantage  of the  convention for  political  gains.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM ) party leader Raila Odinga has made it a reality to host leaders to deliberate the BBI report when he made the commitment during the burial of the mother of Homabay senator Moses Kajwang last month.

Raila said that after the Kisii conference, similar meetings will be replicated in countrywide to reinforce their demands which were not captured by the task force.

Speaking in Migori, Homabay senator Moses Kajwang said it was a meeting worth for it would give leaders a common denominator of understanding and dispensing the content of the BBI to the people.

On his part Uriri MP Mark Nyamita said the meeting would give leaders and delegates the opportunity to share and commonly speak in one voice as a region.

However it is not clear whether Migori county boss will be in attendance as he has distanced himself with recent meetings subsequent to the 10th Summit in Kisii.
