A group stormed the Kisumu government office on Monday demanding transport to Nairobi for NASA chief Raila Odinga's swearing-in. Raila and Kalonzo Musyoka are to take oaths of office as Kenya's president and vice president at the closed Uhuru Park on Tuesday. The youths said the county led by Anyang' Nyong'o had disappointed them in their quest to attend the ceremony.
“What is wrong with our county? We are reading mischief in this because it's like they don't care about Raila taking oath of office," Omondi said. He added about 400 people are to travel and that the county should cater for transport, accommodation and food. “It's unfortunate that we were only given Sh100,000 which cannot cater for all this."
"We are wondering why county leaders are silent on this yet during campaigns 'it was Raila everywhere'," he said. “We have the county govenment, MPs, a woman representative and even MCAs who could have come together and produced the Sh1.5 million to cover all expenses." The group warned of unspecified consequences should Kisumu fail to provide buses. Others said taxes will not be collected anywhere from Tuesday.
