Narok North Member of parliament Moitalel Ole Kenta has told off Narok Governor Samuel Tunai for alleging that he was dividing the communities living in the county.
Ole Kenta who will be vying for the Narok gubernatorial seat said he has served for two terms in Narok North Constituency which is highly cosmopolitan yet all communities living have coexisted peacefully.
“I have been the Member of Parliament for Narok town for the last nine and half years yet there has been no report of a single person who was displaced from their homesteads. Instead, people from all tribes have been flocking the town and starting big businesses,” he said
Kenta reiterated that all the meetings he has held in the county were recorded either on the video camera, recorders or phones saying he has never uttered a word to demean any community living in the county.
The MP wondered why people in parts of the county were struggling to place a plate of food on the table because of the prolonged drought yet the county gets a lot of revenue from the Maasai Mara game reserve and national government.
He said this while addressing journalists in a Narok town hotel where he promised to use the revenue collected in the county to build industries to create job opportunities for all the residents living in the county.
Ole Kenta has been a critic of Governor Tunai since he assumed office and on many occasions skipped public meetings attended by the governor, despite all other MPs attending.
His utterances come after Tunai alleged that the MP, who was seeking to inherit from him, was not mindful about all the other tribes that live in the county.
Tunai who spoke at the Narok County Assembly during the swearing in of Chief Officer in Charge of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) Charles Langat said he will only support a candidate who will not show favoritism to any community living in the county.
Others vying for Narok gubernatorial position are Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) labour Patrick Ntutu (UDA), Narok West Member of Parliament Gabriel Tongoyo (UDA) and Principal Secretary Youth Affairs Charles Sunkuli (Azimio La Umoja).
