CBK Kisumu Branch Manager Elijah Siror held talks with the governor, in talks that saw Nyongo briefed on CBK's journey for the past 50 years.

Sirer also presented the county boss with a copy of the CBK 5Oth Anniversary Celebrations Book on behalf of CBK Governor Patrick Njoroge.

"Glad to have received CBK 50th Anniversary Celebrations Book that was presented to me by the @CBKKenya, Kisumu branch manager Elijah Siror on behalf of the Central Bank of Kenya Governor Dr. @njorogep Njoroge this afternoon in my office," Nyongo tweeted.

However, the meeting was not received well by residents and social media users who reacted in a manner to allege the governor was less concerned about pressing issues that were affecting the residents of Kisumu.

They used the same channel to castigate the Governor for receiving books and holding less important meetings as his constituents continue to suffer from the ongoing nurses strike.

Kisumu is one of the counties where nurses have kept off the hospitals and wards as they push for better working terms. 

Ironically, Nyongo is a former Medical Services Cabinet Minister under the grand coalition government formation between 2007 and 2013.
