A section of former Members of County Assembly in Busia County have urged Governor Paul Otuoma and Senator Okiya Omtata to end their differences and instead focus on the County’s development.

Led by their chairman, who is also the former Bunyala Central MCA Felix Omanyi, the leaders said that elected leaders should unite and concentrate on the development with a view to benefit the electorate.

“As leaders, we want to condemn last Friday’s incident where senator Omtata is reported to have been attacked by some rowdy youth within Busia town,’ he said adding that there was need for unity and tolerance among leaders.

He at the same time urged the senator to refrain from reckless utterances and instead weigh the negative consequences of hate speech.

The leader further urged governor Otuoma to focus on his 2022 campaign manifesto and development agenda for Busia.

Omanyi at the same time challenged religious leaders to intervene and bring the two leaders together for the County’s development.

The former MCA for Nambuku ward, Vincent Olumbe on his part urged Omtata to table motions at the senate that can bring development to Busia County instead of engaging in endless fights with the National and County leadership.

Former Chakol South MCA Okodoi Maskini said that last Friday’s utterances by senator Omtata are likely to create animosity among the local residents.

Last Friday, senator Omtata claimed that he was attacked by some rowdy youth next to Busia County Assembly office immediately he left Busia law courts where he had filed a case Busia governor Paul Ouoma accusing him of denying the former access to information on the County’s development.
