Hon Joel Onyancha was buried yesterday , he was known as the only Kisii leader who has always stool with PNU – TNA -Jubilee in Gusiiland back then during Kibaki era while every politician in kisiiland was vying on an ODM ticket he stood firm with TNA and was elected, he remained steadfast in Jubilee, was a dallying to Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, he traversed the entire Kisii and nyamira county campaigning for Jubilee.
His sudden death last week was received with a lot of shock and pain but what worries most is the manner in which the Jubilee government has vilified his demise, there has not been much attention paid. The president and his deputy yesterday were seriously campaigning in western region while one of their staunch footsoldier was being laid to rest, no media was even covering the event live,
This makes me imagine what could this be the case if it was someone from Central province or Rift Valley, the scenario could have been different, you could have seen the president postpone all his engagements and attend the burial with all the Jubilee top officials, all media houses would by now be giving a live coverage, the same happened during the burial for Biwott, G.G Kariuki, Nkaissery and many others,
This should be a learning experience to our Kisii brothers and sisters, Jubilee does not have our interests as Abagusii community at heart, to them we are just a bridge to presidency and the moment they will reach the other side the will dismantle the bridge please Gusii Nation let’s wake up and open our eyes
