President Uhuru Kenyatta launched a scathing, personal attack on an ODM governor while in Turkana county

Speaking in Turkana county on Wednesday, March 8, Uhuru criticized Governor Joseph Nanok for spearheading little development in his county.

“His county has received more than KSh 40 billion of devolved funds in the past four years. This amount is equal to the combined allocations to Kiambu and Uasin Gishu counties and he has little to show for it. Turkana is a shameful example of an ODM-led county because of poor service delivery to Kenyans,” said Uhuru in a statement.

He said the county should be at par with other counties instead of lagging behind.

On their official Twitter handle, the ODM party responded to Uhuru’s attack in a series of tweets.

“The ODM is disturbed by what is increasingly becoming a habit of the President to pick feuds with certain county leaders. Even worse, the President completely loses his mind and ventures into either personal attacks or denigrating comments,

“This, happening in an election year, does not augur well for peace and cohesion and it must stop. The people of Turkana have legitimate expectations that their leaders must represent their grievances to the powers that be,

“Whether by design or not, it is unacceptable that national government leaders respond to questions of accountability by anger and outrage. The party stands in solidarity with Nanok and the leaders of Turkana. We also reject tactics meant to intimidate and silence peole and their leaders,” tweeted the ODM party.

The tweets came in the wake of President Uhuru urging Turkana residents to jump the ODM ship and join Jubilee because they have brought development to the region as well as commissioned projects.
