Kitutu Chache South MP, Anthony Kibagendi, recently raised pertinent issues that must be addressed for the interest of Omogusii’s unity going forward.
All leaders of goodwill should listen to Kibagendi’s concerns and not dismiss them as mere political rhetoric.

Speaking loudly and publicly before media houses, Kibagendi said that the manner in which teacher recruitment was being done calls for urgent attention by those concerned.
According to the first-time ODM MP, Education Minister Ezekiel Machogu is not being fair in the sharing of opportunities under his docket.
Kibagendi, even without evidence, claimed that several TSC opportunities went to a single ward courtesy of the Minister.
While that is subject to confirmation and tabling of evidence by the claimant, what comes out clear is that our leaders are not united.
Kibagendi demanded that Machogu be stripped of his position.
This is now where the main concern is. To a point, the MP is calling for the replacement of his fellow Omogusii, which brings out deep-rooted differences that if not sorted immediately, will easily paint us as a community negatively.
Before President Ruto visited our region, CS Machogu invited former CS Fred Matiangi to a meeting to plan the same, so we were told, even if Matiangi never issued any statement to that effect.
The circulation of a picture of Matiangi and Machogu sharing a table calmed political tensions that were building in the region.
It’s in this context that I am asking that Matiangi and Machogu also convene another urgent meeting to review the President’s visit and also look for a way of making follow-ups on the pledges made.
During that friendly community meeting, presumably to be attended by all MPs from the community, senators, and governors, Honourable Kibagendi would be given an opportunity to talk out his frustrations.
He should not be ignored as doing so will build a big political gap which we must avoid now as we claim a place in government.
