Why Ranguma blocked Prof Nyong’o from seeing his cows

The governor of Kisumu Prof Anyang Nyong’o was blocked by the former governor from accessing the 27 cows he allegedly purchased at the cost of Sh3.7 million.

Governor Jack Ranguma administration purchased 27 cows at a cost of Ksh 136,000 each but according to CEC for Agriculture Gilchrest Okuom, the current administration could not trace the cows.

He claimed that efforts to meet the families that received the said animals were met with resistance.

The county records reportedly show that each cow was bought at Ksh.136,900 and distributed to five sub-counties.

Okuom said Kisumu East received 7, Kisumu West 6, Kisumu Central 5, Seme 5 and Nyando 4 respectively in May 2017 that were allegedly supplied by Ahero Sky Top Enterprises.

Speaking to Ramogi FM, Okuom said the Kisumu County Government is continuing with the program and currently a total of 180 farmers in Muhoroni, Nyakach and Kisumi West have received animals.

The purchase raises eyebrows as corruption takes toll in Kenya.

Basing analysis from the auditor general’s reports, the cows were either purchased and diverted for individual benefits, or the cows were not purchased at all.
