Council of Governors Chairperson and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya on Monday, July 27 said majority of governors are opposed to the idea of a return to lockdown.

Speaking ahead of the meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta, Governor Oparanya outlined that lock down will not be helpful to Kenyans.

The governors further proposed strict adherence to Ministry of Health guidelines as the top strategy going forward.

“Currently, no money is flowing to counties. How do they (National Treasury) expect counties to deal with these emergencies?

“What is critical is that we must increase testing centres. We have very few of them yet every county should have a testing centre,” he stated.

The chairperson further emphasized that locking down Nairobi will have a big impact on the economy.

“Counties will now be best placed to come up with ways of containing the disease. If we can enhance testing, it will alert us on how to contain the disease.

“To force Kenyans back to their homes is not solving the problem given that the country is not ready to provide essential commodities to people during lockdown,” he added.

Oscar Sudi finally released, barred from addressing public rallies 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Controversial Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi was on Friday, September 18 released from police custody after being detained for close to a week.

A Nakuru Court granted the MP Sh500,000 with an alternative of Sh1 million bond.

The MP was also directed not to address public rallies especially in a manner akin to the incitement charges against him.

The ruling was delivered by High Court Judge Mumbi Ngugi who heard the MP’s appeal to a prior ruling.

A Magistrate’s Court had ruled in favour of an application to have the legislator detained for seven more days starting September 16, 2020 to allow for further investigations.

Justice Ngugi, however, found that there were no compelling reasons to deny the Kapsaret member his freedom.

Sudi’s controversial remarks

The MP surrendered to the police at the beginning of the week after a night of drama at his Eldoret home.

He has been charged with incitement after making unprintable remarks against President Uhuru Kenyatta and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
