[wpforms id="11185"]

Siaya County Governor James Orengo spoke about the ongoing war of words between Vice President Rigathi Gachagua and Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja.

Speaking at the memorial service for the father of Roots party leader George Wajackoyah in Kakamega on Tuesday, Orengo said Gachagua was wrong to claim to lead Governor Johnson Sakaja on county affairs.

According to Orengo, the constitution gives Sakaja the authority to run the county, and if there is a problem, the governor is allowed to talk to the president, not Gachagua.

“If there is a problem in Nairobi, Sakaja can only talk to President William Ruto, not his assistant. We do business with respect and he should not force Sakaja to do what he wants.

“Regarding this issue, Sakaja is right and the vice president is wrong,” Orengo said.

The governor of Siaya continued to say that the law gives Sakaja the authority to govern the city and he is the only one who can be responsible for the affairs of Nairobi County.

“The Constitution of the Republic of Kenya puts the affairs of Nairobi in the hands of Sakaja, no one can be called to be responsible for county affairs except Sakaja,” Orengo said.
