Nyanza leaders defend Raila over calls for dialogue


Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders from Nyanza have defended party leader, Raila Odinga’s calls for dialogue to solve the political stalemate in the country.

Kisii Governor, Simba Arati with Siaya Governor, James Orengo and Alego / Usonga Member of Parliament, Samuel Atandi said that the former prime minister should not be condemned for his calls for dialogue as the issues being raised by Gen Z are the same ones Raila has been fighting for over the years.

The trio was speaking at Ambrose Adeya Adongo secondary school grounds in Alego – Usonga constituency, Siaya County during the official launch of a multimillion shilling administration cum tuition block which was constructed by the area Constituency Development Fund.

The leaders said dialogue was the only way through which Kenya can achieve long lasting stability and resolve the outstanding issues.

Alego/Usonga MP Samuel Atandi and Governor Arati condemned the police brutality that was witnessed during the recent protests that left over 40 people killed and several hundreds nursing gunshot wounds.

Atandi said President William Ruto must take responsibility for the lives which were lost during the anti-government protests.

Governor Orengo demanded for compensation for the victims of police brutality during the anti-government protests.
