Vihiga Senator George Khaniri has warned Kisumu County governor Anyang Nyongo to the renovation of Maseno town until the senate county boundaries commission decides whether Maseno belongs to Vihiga or Kisumu counties.
The tough-talking Khaniri says the act by the Kisumu County government to start renovations in Maseno is a show of rudeness and impunity.
“Don’t take our humble nature as a sign of weakness. We do everything by the law. The issue on Maseno boundary is in the senate boundaries commission until the county boundaries bill is passed, that’s when we will know who owns Maseno.” Khaniri said on Saturday.
He adds that Maseno boundary should not be tampered with until the bill is passed but maintains that Maseno belongs to Vihiga.
“We don’t want anyone to tamper with the boundary of Maseno until that bill is passed and the commission decides Maseno belongs to which County. I know and maps support, Maseno is ours…” Added Khaniri.
Maseno boundary has been a critical issue between Kisumu and Vihiga counties for long as both sides maintain the town belongs to them.
Recently, Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyongo moved to set up renovation projects in the town a move that was considered as a declaration of ownership of the town.
