Open Letter to Kisumu County Governor Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o

103views

Hello Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o,

You have recently made pronouncements against hotels in Kisumu hosting seminars and conferences. Through your utterances ICPAK (Institute of Certified Public Accountants) has had to move a key national conference on Public Debt Management slated for Imperial Hotel Kisumu to Kakamega. This is one of the premier events that ICPAK holds every year. It is an event that attracts more than 200 participants.

The economic cost related to such changes and other events is worrying to have come from a governor like you.

I want to urge you to carefully think through your actions especially illegal ones like this one.

While we appreciate the need to protect Raila’s votes from those hellbent on buying ID cards, you must not issue blanket orders that hurt the private sector in this region which is already reeling from loss of business due to political uncertainty.

May I remind you that Kisumu City has very little investments in the manufacturing sector and heavily relies on hospitality industry to survive.
The many NGO’s hosted in this region with intervention programs in healthcare and education augment our dwindling economy.

This is the second roadside decision you have made after the renaming of a street.

While the idea of street renaming from Kenyatta to Chris Msando is noble, it is not aligned with our laws and has not been approved by county assembly.

Kindly avoid impunity.. I fully support your government and its programs for the betterment of our county, BUT you must not act with impunity ….

We have a long journey to propel Baba to the Presidency, kindly don’t make this journey harder for the economically deprived City of Kisumu which suffers more than any region when our rights are abused.

Yours county citizen,

CPA Hesbon Omollo
