MCA, MP clash over Akichelesit paralysis case

Teso North MP Arthur Odera and Malaba Central Ward representative,
Ishmael Orodi  clashed on Friday  over the Akichelesit paralysis saga
that had even been forgotten after the victims were treated at the
Nairobi hospital and allowed to return home over a month ago.
The MP and MCA shared a podium  at  two functions. At Ikapolok Primary
School in his constituency, Odera  railed at Orodi  for doing nothing
over the Akichelesit saga and yet he was the Assembly health committee
chairman.
Odera  had also told the MCA that the Juice factory  which will
generate over 1500  direct job opportunities in the area was a private
entity which the county government should not take credit of. He asked
Orodi to table their achievements  to confirm  his assertion that the
Ojaamong administration had done a lot for the county residents.
Orodi (pictured below) took an opportunity to answer back the  MP at
the neighbouring Kajei Secondary School where they converged for a
book harvest  day.
The  Health committee chairman told the MP  the Akichelesit report was
ready and he  will tabled it  on Tuesday contrary to the MP’s claims
that he did nothing on the saga.
Orodi also took  time to explain how he had opened up new roads
through the Kajei forest and other areas in his ward  to confirm that
the county government gad done commendable work.  Residents in
attendance supported  him over his track record.
He said the Italian investors  who are putting up the Juice Factory
at Ikapolok  did so after attending a successful Busia International
Investors Conference, adding that the County Government offered  the
six acre land for the factory.
Orodi said  over  five factories are under construction  courtesy of
the sound investment climate. ”  Busia  medical Training Centre will
soon open door to medical students . Health institutions are being
upgraded  with ambulances, tractors and road equipment purchased to
revamp our roads.”
