Siaya Governor, Cornel Rasanga has told Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo to “blame his mother for marrying his poor father”, making him suffer during his childhood.
Rasanga further said Gumbo should not feel jealous of the privileges he got when he was young. The governor ,who was speaking at the burial of his uncle Caleb Ooche in South East Alego ,said people don’t care whether the MP suffered or not.
During his campaigns, Gumbo always says he was brought up by poor parents, which was the cause of his miserable childhood.
In a church service this Sunday, the MP said: “I was brought up by a poor father who could not even afford a blanket for us to cover ourselves”. Few days later, Rasanga told the competitor to blame his mother for choosing a poor man as the husband.
Speaking at the burial of his uncle Caleb Ooche in South East Alego, Rasanga accused Gumbo of engineering the ban on his relief food distribution programme by saying it was being used to seek votes. Rasanga also claimed the maize was rotten.
Rasanga said, “Let him come with his fresh maize and distribute it to the public.”
