Leaders from Mumias county now claim that Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali is missing.

The leaders led by former sports CS Rashid Echesa have given government two hours to tell them where he is.

Washiali who double up as National Assembly Majority chief whip allegedly went missing last night.

He was among the top organizers of the Mumias BBI meeting parallel with the one held in Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega.

"Kama hawatatuambia penye ndungu yetu yuko wakuwe tayari kukutana na consequences, ( We are giving you two hours from now, if you don’t reveal where Washiali is, prepare to face the consequences),"Echesa said.

The Mumias BBI meeting was organised by Echesa and Washiali under the Western regional development consultative forum.

But their meeting was canceled by the police on Tuesday.

Luhya discord: Curse or bad leadership? :oops:

Ridiculed for long for their divisive politics and elusive unity, leaders of the populous Luhya nation gave meaning to this mockery — yet again — when they failed to agree to a single meeting Saturday to discuss the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report and development concerns in the region.


With local leaders Mr Mudavadi, Mr Wetang’ula, Chairman of Council of Governors Wycliffe Oparanya and Secretary-General of the Central Organisation of Trade Unions (Cotu) Francis Atwoli failing to reach a compromise, external intervention proved handy including use of threats, intimidation and cancellation of one of the rallies destined for Nabongo grounds, in Mumias.

On Friday afternoon, Mr Wetang’ula confirmed to Sunday Nation that he and Mr Mudavadi would not attend the Mumias meeting.

“We spoke firmly at Bomas in support of this process. Those therefore labeling Mr Mudavadi and I as anti-BBI are simply playing politics.”
The Ford-Kenya leader inferred the Bukhungu Stadium was viewed by some in his party members as an affair of the Raila Odinga’s ODM.
Mr Mudavadi and Mr Wetang’ula nevertheless attended the Saturday meeting in Kakamega.
On the other hand, former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale maintained politicians allied to Deputy President William Ruto would hold a parallel meeting at Nabongo grounds.

Mr Mudavadi attributes the endless factional rifts to lack of consultation, opportunism and desire to vanquish each other at the behest of outside interests.
Some leaders, points out the ex-vice president, are extremely petty, deceitful and skeptical of each other.
There are instances, says the ANC leader, when the western parliamentary caucus meets and agrees on certain decisions, but are countered by members before being acted upon, mainly in favor of outside political players.
The Ford-Kenya leader specifically blames the confusion in Luhya land to “outsiders”, mainly the DP and former PM, for seemingly creating political rifts within for their personal interests.
“We have helped many since independence to ascend to the presidency. When we dance to their political tune they cheer us as nationalists, but when we request them to return a favor, they claim we are tribalism.

Time has come for us to reclaim our respect and honor even if this will slow down our quest for the country’s top seat,” says the Bungoma senator.
Political sociologist Amukowa Anangwe discerns the leadership fissures in Luhyaland as symptomatic of the community’s political culture.
“It is inherently liberal and bereft of dogmatism unlike other ethnic communities. This runs across all the strata of Luhya society. As it were, it is a community of freethinkers or they subscribe to the ideology of “feelanga free”. It is an orientation that pervades the entire community,” says Prof Anangwe.
The ex-Cabinet minister argues that the trait is not necessarily negative as perceived adversely by the outside observers.
In short, he says, the Luhya leaders are simply enjoying fully their fundamental freedoms of association, speech, assembly and conscience, and “other ethnic communities should learn to follow suit in order to deepen democracy in the country”.

In this respect, Prof Anangwe opines that Mr Mudavadi — the de facto Luhya leader — has not failed to unite the competing political forces in the community.
“Our approach is different and Mr Mudavadi therefore has to lead the Luhya according to their basic political orientation while respecting their fundamental freedoms.”
But Dr Khalwale claims the Luhya nation is in a current political quagmire because of lack of leadership in the region.
“Mr Mudavadi and Mr Wetang’ula are our senior political leaders owing to their parliamentary experience and because they are leaders of political parties, but they have let us down big time,” he said.
And if they continue in their alleged confusion, Mr Wamalwa says the community may be forced at some point to proclaim that western Kenya has no shortage of leaders, “since many others are ready to take over the mantle from them”.
2022 SCENE
Mr Mudavadi however maintains he is neither divisive nor belongs to a political grouping in the region.
“I have kept my counsel restricted to appealing for an inclusive BBI process to avoid splintering of western region. But I know some would celebrate if attempts to brand me a Ruto partner succeed.
In it, I read designs that it is me who’s being targeted for exclusion because I have never stopped asking for inclusive and a transparent BBI process,” Mr Mudavadi says.


Dr Khalwale opines that Saturday’s events will no doubt shape the political scenario of the people of Luhya ahead of 2022, with battle lines between Mr Odinga and Dr Ruto.
But Prof Anangwe disagrees: “The BBI disagreements are short-lived and are of little consequence on the political future of the community. Come 2022, the community will vote overwhelmingly depending on the political formations that will have emerged in due course.”

From the current developments, the Luhya nation is yet again approaching a crucial national political undertaking — the BBI — a divided house, in the same manner it has done over the years.

In contrast, the neighboring Nyanza region held a relatively calmer exercise.
