Dr Evans Kidero has claimed that his five-year tenure was frustrated by a senator who did not know his roles.
Speaking at Uhuru Park on Wednesday, the governor said that he would have accomplished more were it not for an ‘incompetent’ senator.
The Senator did not understand what his roles were because of incompetence. People like Kimani Wamatangi, Bonny Khalwale and Anyang’ Nyongo knew what the role of a senator entailed and they will probably go down as the best senators in the last parliament,” said Dr Kidero while meeting the Teso community in Nairobi.
Kidero further criticized Sonko-Igathe manifesto, claiming that it is unrealistic and impossible to implement.
“It is not realistic. This coming year through the revenue sharing formula we are getting Sh13.5 billion and another Sh2 billion for the programmes from the national government mainly in health as conditional grant. Salaries currently is Sh1.3 billion after the salary review will now go to Sh1.5 billion. How will they fund their operations?” he posed.
He also claimed Mr Sonko’s manifesto was copied from his strategic plan.
“It is all copied from ours. Tell me what is different from ours? The only difference is that they do not understand the job they supposedly want to do,” he said.
