Homa Bay Town lawmaker Opondo Kaluma has taken issue with the county's leadership over what he termed as lack of development and consideration for the people's needs.

Speaking on Saturday, the MP ranked the Governor Cyprian Awiti-led county last in Western Kenya region in regards to development, blaming it all on the county boss.

He bashed the governor for allegedly failing to tame corruption and corrupt officials serving in his government, resulting in poor service delivery and stagnated development.

Kaluma claimed that laziness in the county leadership has resulted in widespread corruption and nothing tangible in terms of initiatives.

"Its sad that there is no development project going on in the county currently. The only thing we can see is looting and corruption," he said during an interview on Radio Nam Lolwe on Saturday morning.

He termed the water and health sectors as the worst hit, saying that area residents are facing an acute water shortage despite being on the shores of Lake Victoria.

So dire is the situation, he said, that even there is a lack of water in the toilets at the county's headquarters.

"People of Homa Bay only see running water on television. The Homa Bay stadium has been nicknamed the red carpet because sports people are forced to play on the murram and the county referral hospital is in a pathetic state," he added.
