By Khama Neneh.
The return of political violence and thuggery marks a new low for the City County of Kisumu. It doesn’t help matters that primitive energies furthering this devils agenda are hirelings of non other than the governor Jack Ranguma, who is using every evil in his political play book to cover his wanton failures of even taking Kisumu off from the shores of regression, corruptions, clanism, insecurity and yes unemployment.
Nyangara’s convoy attacked
Saturday evening attack on Governor hopeful Asaka Nyangara cannot go unmentioned. This was cowardly, callous and depicted a governor on a losing trend. When Ranguma reverts to own a BOKO HARAM militia and viciously unleash it on his fierce competitor and a leading candidate in the 2017 Gubernatorial race— it’ s obvious Ranguma is scared, unnerved and psychologically bruised by nascent Asaka Nyangara wave that is sweeping Kisumu like a typhoon.
It is therefore sad and unacceptable that Ranguma has resorted political terrorism as a mean of closing the gap between him and his main political competitor Dr. Nyangara. To an extent of pelting Asaka Nyangara’s convoy with giant stones and petrol bombs and later that night staging a daring kidnap of Asaka Nyangara’s diehard supporter Ababu in ahero, is a telltale sign that Ranguma is headed for dangerous paths.
If it wasn’t for the security features on Asaka Nyangara’s car and his vigilant sea of supporters who thwarted the earlier Saturday incident at Ahero and Kisumu, who knows. Equally, if it wasn’t for the hawk-eyed security officers at ahero who rescued Ababu from the Ranguma owned gang of kidnappers and the doctors who later treated him, things would have taken an ugly turn.
Saving Kisumu is unstoppable.
The race to restore Kisumu is unstoppable, and whether Ranguma now seeks help from ISIS in Syria or Boko Haram in Nigeria or even gets a Nuclear Bomb from North Korea; he will never stop the idea whose time has come. Enough is enough.
Speaking to politics.co.ke, Asaka Nyangara’s spokesman confirmed the 2017 governor designate is alive and kicking and bubbling in high spirits. He continued “Asaka is a warrior whose resolve is stronger than a nuclear bomb. What doesn’t kill him makes him stronger”
In a phone interview, Peoples Governor Dr. Asaka assured his supporters that “no amount of intimidation or blackmail will stop river Nile. Time to restore Kisumu back to the people and chase away the bodyguards of impunity is now or never. Instead of providing decent jobs; they are arming our youth, turning them into killing and maiming machines. Insecurity and unemployment is the new philosophy of the county government. They have become ancestors of corruption denying the humble citizens of Kisumu better public goods and services. Mediocrity and sloth is the new grease they apply in driving Kisumu to the reverse into uncertainty.”
However police confirmed they are holding a suspect and pursuing other members of this fiery militia and will stop at nothing in bringing them to justice. This is a second time since his other warlord Makamu led a group of boko harams to attack and harass one fierce critic of the governor blogger Francis Onyango.
