Coast Region legislators attack ODM of betraying them over the revenue sharing formula citing hypocrisy, where Nyanza Senators voted yes for the Coast region loose funds in the new revenue sharing formula.


Over 10 lawmakers drawn from Coastal counties named the four Luo Nyanza senators terming them enemies of the Coastal region.


Led by ODM’s Owen Baya (Kilifi North), the Coast MPs said by Senators James Orengo (Siaya), Fred Outa (Kisumu), Moses Kajwang’ (Homabay) and Ochillo Ayacko (Migori) voting to deny the region resources is the highest form of betrayal.


“The debate and subsequent vote on the Majority Whip Irungu Kangata's amendments on the revenue sharing formula has exposed who our true friends are," Baya said.


The legislator said the vote revealed the ideological hypocrisy of their so-called 'political bedfellows'.


“ODM senators from Luo Nyanza threw the Coast under the bus left us on the horns of despair," Baya said.


"We wish to tell them that their selfish votes may be celebrated at home because they were to attempt to save BBI and a few million shillings as benefits of the handshake, ” he added.


The MPs remarked that the plot of the ODM senators will have political consequences in 2022 adding that the region is considering pursuing new friends going forward.


“Their actions and their votes consequentially mean a divorce to the fraternity at the Coast,” he posed.


Others present included; Mohammed Ali (Nyali), Michael Kingi (Magarini), Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), Sharif Ali (Lamu East), Andrew Mwadime (Mwatate), Khatib Mwashetani (Lunga Lunga), Jones Mlolwa (Voi) Paul Kahindi (Kaloleni), Ali Mbogo(Kisauni), Badi Twalib(Jomvu) and Benjamin Taya (Kinango)
