Governor Hillary Barchok of Bomet has urged Azimio leader Raila Odinga to cancel his planned mass action.
Speaking at the conclusion of County Administrator training, Barchok accused Raila of holding the country hostage with his political antics.
He claimed that mass action would scare away investors concerned about the state of their security.
“If he loves Kenya, if he loves the children of this country, he should put an end to all of this. If we ask wananchi to come to the streets, we will be wasting their time,” said Barchok.
In the same breath, the county manager made Raila an offer to keep him busy.
He asked Raila if he could run some of the governor’s errands if he had nothing better to do with his time.
“If you don’t have anything to do with your time, then come I offer you a job. “You can walk around and look after my cows,” he explained.
Raila declared the start of nationwide protests on Thursday after President William Ruto failed to address his concerns following the expiration of his 14-day ultimatum.
