Jubilee Senator and governor clash over slay queens
Jubilee governor on the spot over slay queens and light-skinned women
The concerns were raised by Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei who noted that with slay queens literally taking over county government jobs, service delivery had deteriorated significantly in the county.
“I have no problem with people of light complexion, my mother is also light-skinned. But are we going to do with those are dark-skinned? Who is going to employ them if the criterion required is that you be light-skinned?” Cherargei stated.
“It is good because the governor is here so that it does not become gossip. My concern is to find out the whereabouts of Sh13 million, which I am told might have been channeled to purchase water, mandazi and to entertain slay queens." Added the Senator.
Cherargei made the comments at a public event in Mosop Constituency that was also attended by Governor Stephen Sang.
In a quick response, Sang challenged Cherargei to engage with him constructively and soberly to discuss issues in a mature manner.
“It is advisable for a leader to talk soberly and moderately. I am happy that for the past five years when I was in the Senate, I never let down the county in the way I talked.” Sang said.
“At times mistakes happen because we are all human…It is good to point out issues that are not okay and even single out poor performers in the county. But it is wrong to lie to the public,” he added.
The two leaders have had frosty relationship and have on numerous occasions attacked each other at political events.
Previous attempts to broker a truce between the two youthful leaders have been futile, with concerns that their political rivalry could hamper development in the country.
