Busia residents have lauded    Governor Sospeter Ojaamong for  facing  President Uhuru Kenyatta  and his Ugandan counterpart  Yoweri Museveni with brevity regarding tribulations facing his residents.

The Governor  talked  for  nearly three minutes,  but what came out of his candid speech  was applauded  left Kenyans and  Ugandans  who attended the commissioning of the One Stop Border Post  at Busia Uganda on Saturday .

Ojaamong told President  Museveni to put  to a halt the tribulations  Kenyan   residents   were facing at the hands of  his soldiers and making them eat  raw fish  as a punishment.

He also told the two  leaders  to have small scale traders to enjoy the   benefits  accrued from OSBP  which appears to benefit  big traders, adding that  President  Uhuru  should  reciprocate by constructing a  parking bay for trucks.

David Maggio  said the Governor  was spot on in taking the two leaders head on regarding tribulations  Kenyan fishermen were being subjected  to by Ugandan security officers  while fishing on Lake Victoria.

” Our Governor  indeed wants to leave a legacy. A solution to  the plight of fishermen  as  per  the two heads of state  will be a big plus to our Governor who  kick started the debate,” he said.

County Boda boda Sacco chairman Eric Makokha said the  Governor  deserves a pat in the back  for defending his people. ” It is true  Busia County donated land for the construction of the OSBP in Busia and Malaba. We deserve a trailer park in  the two border towns  like in Uganda,” he said.

” We want  the Governor to leave a legacy as he exits in 2022 when  we  shall consider   Judy Onamu Ojaamong  for the Women’s representative seat ,” he said.
