Siaya Governor Hired Tractors For Publicity

Campus Post

Yesterday, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga led in “flagging off” of tractors meant to boost farming in Siaya County.

The event is reported to have cost millions of shillings of tax-payers’ money in terms of branding and advertising. A media house which broadcasted the event from Siaya is said to have received 10million shillings and another 2million shillings was spent in advertising.

But a day later, the Campus Post has established that the siaya county government never bought the tractors, but hired them from Kisumu CMC for display. “It was a make-believe event, shamelessly aired live nationally by Citizen TV. All the the tractors paraded yesterday by Cornel Rasanga Amoth and “Flagged-off” by Raila Odinga were hired from CMC Motors Kisumu for one day show. The launching yesterday was a publicity only.” A highly placed source at CMC MOTORS Kisumu has verified this.
