There was drama in Daroretti North as members of the Luo community dumped their current Member of Parliament hon Paul Simba Arati for the incoming Member of Parliament Senator Beatrice Elachi popularly known as Mama Dago.
Madam Elachi arrived at Dagoretti corner’s empowerment Centre where she was scheduled to meet Luo defectors who assured her of their support although they maintained their loyalty to Raila Odinga.
Upon arrival, madam Elachi was accorded a super warm reception by hundreds of members of the Luo community who vowed to work with her.
Through their spokespersons Aggrey Okello and Madam Grace Ogolla Ojwang, they expressed their dissatisfaction with the way the current MP hon Simba Arati has handled things. They claimed they have never felt the impact of CDF or bursaries since they are given in a biasing manner.
“On behalf of members of the Luo community, I want to assure you that you have our unstinting support because the man we elected as our MP has failed us miserably. We therefore want to rally behind you because we have tested your leadership. We have therefore elected to ignore tear the suit apart and through our weight behind you. We are assuring you our full support as our MP but huko juu ni ya Baba” Said Mr. Okello.
“Under the leadership of the current MP, women of Dagoretti North have suffered for long. They have now decided to rally behind you because they feel it is their fellow women who can understand their problems. On behalf of women voters in Dagoretti North I want to assure you of our support. We shall stand with by our fellow woman to the end” Said Madam Ogolla.
Oh her side, hon Elachi promised to keep her promise by getting them out of the Egypt they are in.
