While addressing a mammoth crowd that had gathered to receive Prof. Sam Ongeri who defected from Jubilee to ODM, Raila Odinga , told the ecstatic crowd that he built the roads that are in the two counties when he was the Roads and Public works Minister.
He mentioned Kisii-Chemosit, Keroka- Nyangusu, Center-Nyamira, Rongo-Etago and Keumbu -Igare as among the major projects he did to the Kisii community.
He praised the Kisii community as hard working people and are found in every part of Kenya.
He went further to say that not only are they in every part of Kenya, but also in various parts of East Africa, United states, majorly in NJ, Texas, Minnesota which he said is like another home of the hard working community.
He blamed the Jubilee administration of mismanaging the economy and now the arrest and jailing of Medical doctors who are demanding for better pay.
Professor Ongeri said that he is happy to be in the party his people want him to belong to and promised to fight for fair and equal distribution of resources if given chance and mandate by the Kisii people. He is promising a bruising battle with Charles Nyachae who will be carrying the Jubilee flag in the senatorial contest.
