JUBILEE PARTY PRIMARIES NIGHTMARE

Now that Jubilee primaries  is around the corner, it’s giving us yet another time to rate our current leadership in order to make an informed decision. Let’s begin by analysing the current  regime so that it aid us all in making decision.

As you are all aware, in 2013, the sitting Isiolo County Boss  rode solely on Borana support across the clan divide and clinched the gubernatorial seat. He was voted in to champion the development of Isiolo County and raise the living standards of its  residents. Today, let’s delve into assessment of his regime, regime that has killed the hopes of the poor! The regime that has been on looting spree since its inception, the regime in which Isiolo County went to its lowest ebb! The only county government that has nothing in its name ever since it came into being!

 

We will start by highlighting a few of his sins as we can’t fit them all into one post, because it will take us forever to pen every misdeed of the incumbent.

Immediately Doyo occupied the governor’s office, he threw in the dustbin his elections pledges and embarked on a journey that proved disastrous to our county.

Sad as it is, it has come to our attention that for the last few days, to be precise, ever since Kuti declared his candidature, County mandarins are trying to hoodwink Isiolo residents that they should vote for Doyo under the guise of Borantiti, we Must pen truth about doyo’s lack of an iota of borantiti! Truth are always put into perspective because it is truth, it neither has something to do with killing doyo’ s chance of re-election nor being about supporting election of his opponents! It is about truth and speaking truth is an act of ibada, Islamically.

 

CABINET APPOINTMENTS

When Doyo selected his cabinet, in Borana community he chose people from only three clans: Warjidda, Sakuye and Karayu. He in essence thought  that the rest of the Borana clans are either not Borana enough to hold bigger positions or are inconsequential in that they don’t have the numbers to worry him in 2017 elections.

To make the matters worse, his appointments were based on cronyism rather than merit, in most cases. Within his cabinet, he made sure that the appointed Borana sons would not hold otherwise crucial dockets like finance, Health etc. This negates County Government Act

To add insult to the injury, Doyo blocked employment of competent Borana sons and daughters which was done by Isiolo County Public Service Board.

They include:

 1. Abdinassir Ali -Chief Finance Officer

     2. Salad Kikuyu-Head of Supply Chain

     3. Halima Ibrahim- Head of Revenue

     4.Roba Qanchora- Head of Treasury

     5.Hussein Wako Gedho- Director Land, Survey and planning

We were all  hopeful that the  new team would put in place efficient system that would be accountable to the people of Isiolo . There were hopes that they would put in place a  system that would guarantee collection of local revenue and introduce tougher curbs to stop insider dealing that has brought down our county. However, the hope did not last! Doyo and other county Mandarins wouldn’t allow ‘Outsiders‘ to come in and bring to an end the culture of looting that has become norm.

 

OTHER APPOINTMENTS 

One of the silent crucial positions that has come with Devolved  Governance  is position of Directors! In county like Marsabit, the sitting governor appointed his kinsmen to this position because it’s one of ‘big’ positions that its terms are permanent and pensionable while clueless governor Doyo is yet to fill Borana people into the position. The few  appointed to the position do not have appointment letters, hence, their term shall end in April, in less than two weeks time as their boss becomes former Governor.

E.C.D.E TEACHERS AND NURSES 

After reality downed on him that he got nothing to showcase plus fear of the ECDE teachers and ‘health docket workers’ wrath Doyo for the last few weeks has been jumping up and down, He met the ECDE TEACHERS and still looking for very many nurses he denied opportunity with the promise of giving them permanent jobs!

One would wonder, whether that ECDE teacher would want his/her salary which has not been paid for several months or would believe in (what in Borana dialect is called ‘rarag‘) verbal improvement of work terms to permanent and pensionable.

 

Mind you, we have not talked about the very many Borana youths employed as Nutritionist, Health workers etc by the same county Government that believes that white color jobs are not meant for Borana, who were later sacked citing allegations that employment process were done illegally, some workers lacked certificate etc. Mark you, some were never paid for the few months they worked.

 

MANAGEMENT  OF COUNTY FUNDS

Doyo embarked on embezzlement of county funds immediately he assumed office. He bought Storeys abound of properties in Isiolo, Nakuru  and Nairobi amongst other places, through proxies. Of course with funds meant for providing basic amenities and services to the people of Isiolo. The perennial Modo Gashe and Basa water problems, the poor state of Health sector, the poor state of our roads to name but a few are testaments to the diversion of funds meant for these services to his and his few  cronies pockets.

Poor school facility

With the billions of funds at his disposal, there is no single health facility, no single ECD classroom, no anything, in the name of current regime, the few millions of CDF managed by Bahari and Kuti have done wonders if the Doyo regime is anything compare with!As such, Today, as we head to nominations, people should wisely  choose between Hon. Bahari and Senator Kuti.

 

 

 

 

 

 

AWARDING OF TENDERS 

This is probably Doyo’s greatest undoing. His only beneficiaries are  group of shrewd and notoriously corrupt business men who partner with corrupt leaders to award themselves tenders, grab land and anything valuable that is meant for the public which are in control of the corrupt leaders. Doyo went neck deep into this sinful and despicable partnership that robbed the residents of Isiolo off the right to these resources meant for their development.

He sidelined  Borana people in  awarding of tenders. With many of this team being people from Mandera. The unholy partnership culminated into him declaring that he is a member of Birkaya clan of Garri Tribe from Mandera. He in so doing, denounced his Warjidda kinship and Borana kinship at large.

People like former Isiolo South Legislature Hon Abdul Bahari Ali have made at least  one or two Borana millionaires in every centres, while with the billions, Doyo has not made even a single Uso Harito Millionaire, no wonder Uso Harito have dumped  him for The ever absentee Kuti.
