I am working with Ruto openly, honestly for development in Uriri and Nyanza- Nyamita

By MN Reporter

Uriri MP Mark Nyamita has insisted his plan to work with government of President William Ruto is open and honest.

Nyamita was among ODM rebel leaders suspended and fined by the party for working with Ruto.

“I am yet to get the official letter from ODM over their decision so that I can know the content and my action,” Nyamita said.

He was fined Sh1m and suspension as a party member in a year.

Speaking at St Mary Catholic Church in his constituency, th legislator said he was honest and open in working with government.

He said the first meeting they had in Nyanza was pushed by nominated MP and chairman of ODM John Mbadi was the one who told them to host him in Homa Bay county.

He said a memorandum as Migori leaders for that meeting was read by governor Ochillo Ayacko.

“We talked about sugarcane farming, waiver on loans owed by mills and other development agenda and despite not voting for Ruto he gave us an ear,” he said.

“We went to Ruto and promised to work with him in open and not at night, anybody saying we went there for selfish gains should know and see projects started,” he said.

He said in Uriri they managed to get a new Sh50m hospital at Othoro, Sh10m each for Uriri and Othoro secondary schools, Sh3.4bn upgrade of Gogo Falls and a road from Stella to Oyani.

He said about 70 per cent of the promises, like the waiver of loans in sugarcane sector have been fulfilled.

“We are waiting for 2027 general elections, in between we will work with government for development,” Nyamita said.
