All eyes are now on the interior Cabinet Secretaries Hon. Kithure Kindiki as ODM officials in Kisii have threatened to protest after governor Simba Arati’s Harassment.

Officials from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) have raised their voices against what they describe as ongoing threats and intimidation against Governor Simba Arati. The political atmosphere has thickened with unease, as party officials, led by Chairman Kerosi Ondieki, assert that these actions are obstructing the governor’s ability to effectively serve the community.

The situation escalated when Ondieki, speaking to the press at the Kisii Agricultural Training Centre, announced plans for a county-wide protest.

“We will protest across the county for two weeks from Friday until the governor is respected and given the freedom to serve residents,” he declared, signaling a collective stand against the alleged harassment.

The core of the issue seems to revolve around unannounced visits to the governor’s residences by security officers, a move that Ondieki vehemently opposes, labeling it as unacceptable. In a plea for higher intervention, he has reached out to President William Ruto, urging him to ensure Governor Arati’s safety and his unimpeded ability to carry out his duties. “They want to derail the governor’s development agenda. I urge him to return home. We will protect him,” Kerosi stated, reflecting a protective stance towards the governor.

Adding to the chorus of concern, Dennis Mosoti, the leader of the party’s youth league, has called upon Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof Kithure Kindiki to take immediate action to address the growing insecurity in the county. Mosoti’s appeal is for a peaceful resolution that allows Governor Arati the “ample time to work” that he requires.

The sentiment is echoed by Everline Mogire, the women’s league leader, who condemned the threats against Governor Arati. She warned of potential protests led by women, highlighting the community’s readiness to stand in solidarity with their governor.
