Makongeni Youths Accuse Area Politicians Of Grabbing Social Hall Rough Up Contractor


Makongeni residents have vowed to protect their burnt social hall and to shun grabbers from it  until  government will  renovate the facility for  community use.

The hall  that was allegedly burnt last year is now a battle field between  Bishop Osham Ominde and the area residents.

Yesterday youths in Makongeni stormed the hall site  and roughed up a contractor and other workers who were in the process of renovating it before being whisked away.

Speaking to Ghetto Radio News after the incident Philip Otieno a retired professional boxer who used to train other upcoming boxers in the hall accused Bishop Ominde of using area politicians and the Kenya Railways Company to grab the facility.

‘‘This hall belongs to the community, politicians here have sold public utilities including our playing ground , they are now grabbing this social hall and we shall not allow.. enough is enough….Bishop Ominde will not construct anything here let me warn them’’ Otieno said.

On Wednesday Bishop Ominde had a long meeting with Makongeni OCS and community representative but the meeting did not yield any fruit.

They are set to resume  engagement  further  today together with Kenya Railways Managing Director.
