Homa-Bay County National security team in partnership with Religious leaders and civil societies have formed peace and reconciliation Forum, aimed at uniting Members of the County Assembly of Homa Bay over the ongoing wrangles.
The forum led by County Commissioner, Irungu Macharia as the county security chairperson has brought together the stakeholders, so as to promote good political leadership in the Assembly through reconciliation process.
Macharia said that the forum has planned to meet the Assembly leadership and MCAs so that they may devise ways of ending the persistent wrangles that have caused cracks in the unity of the Assembly.
He added that the current violence and chaos in the Assembly have negatively put Homa-Bay County in the national headlines.
The commissioner states that the forum is also prepared to cool down high political temperature in the county through reconciliation ahead of Supreme Court verdict on Homa-Bay gubernatorial seat.
The Anglican Church diocesan Bishop in charge of Southern Nyanza, James Ochiel noted that the forum will roll out a programme, aimed at spreading the gospel of peace and reconciliation in the entire county to create a conducive environment for development.
The executive Director of an organization, known as Justice and Mercy, Kennedy Okoth who is the main sponsor of the forum added that their main role is to facilitate the forum to unite the County for development purposes.
