ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo has said President William Ruto’s government is only engaging in the politics of improving lives.
He noted that those out to use conflicts to sabotage the efforts of the Kenya Kwanza government of promoting prosperity are enemies of the people.
He urged the youth and women from the region to apply for the newly launched Hustlers Fund, saying it has a good intention to improve the economy of Kenyans.
His sentiments seemed to be response to recent calls for mass action by Azimio coalition as a way of putting to check Ruto’s government.
The CS said it was time that the people of Nyanza worked closely with the current government to enjoy the fruits of their tax.
“We are focused on ensuring our farmers are supplied with subsidised seeds and fertilisers,” said the CS.
“We also want to ensure that our fishing activities and marketing are improved for the sake of improving the people’s income and nothing else,” he explained.
We want good roads to in this region, improved healthcare and clean water to reach every part of Migori and the entire NyanzaEliud Owalo
“Holding onto politics of tag of wars is going against the people’s wish of seeing a better country. Our people come first and must be served diligently,” Owalo remarked.
Owalo made the remarks while launching the third phase of relief food distribution at Got Kwer trading centre in Suna West Sub County, Migori County.
The relief food, Maize, Beans and Rice, are given to cushion people from hunger ravaging the area as droughts extend.
“We want good roads to in this region, improved healthcare and clean water to reach every part of Migori and the entire Nyanza,” he said.
Owalo also stressed the importance of having mining activities modernized to produce good earnings.
Bashing demonstration calls
Owalo was flanked at the meeting by several leaders from Luo Nyanza, led by former Migori governor Okoth Obado.
Obado took the stage to bash out former Prime Minister Raila Odinga over his call for Kenyans to go to the streets.
He castigated Raila for being out to cause chaos in the country and have many Kenyans die for no apparent reason.

Also present were former Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo, former Kisumu Senator Outa, former Nyatike MP Edick Anyanga. and the current Suba South Mp Karolly Omondi.
The group deemed as rebels warned Raila to stop his moves of constantly fighting sitting governments.
“Kenyans, specifically the Luo community, are tired of politically instigated demonstrations that only lead to deaths, injuries and destruction of properties,” said Obado.
“If our people are to go to the streets this time round, let Raila and his children lead the race. We want to see him throw stones practically,” he added.
Their sentiments came, following Raila’s urge to Kenyans to gather in Nairobi on the Seventh and attend a parallel Jamhuri Day on the 12th.
