Orange Democratic Party (ODM) chairman John Mbadi has revealed that Nyanza leaders refused to meet with President Ruto at State House before he toured their backyard. 

Speaking on Monday, the nominated MP disclosed that they instead met with Interior PS Raymond Omollo and made the preparations ahead of the president’s tour.

“A change of heart from where… I don’t think there’s a change of heart. This is the first time Ruto is making an official visit to Nyanza as a president and he invited leaders from the region he was visiting.I was invited to the functions in Homa Bay. We made preparatory meetings here in Nairobi together with PS Interior,” Mbadi told Spice FM.

“I led the MPs from Homa Bay. We met with him (PS Omollo) and we were to meet the President here in Nairobi but we politely requested that we meet in Homa Bay and that was granted. We asked for one hour, we were given two,” He added.

Mbadi revealed that the meeting was centered on the development of Homa Bay County.

“We presented a memorandum through our governor and I think the same was replicated in other counties,” he stated.
