Former Kanduyi MP Mr. Wafula Wamunyinyi has questioned the credibility of installing a statue representing a cockerel on a roundabout in Bungoma town.

While tweeting through his X account, the former Bungoma Senatorial candidate asked if the statue was a representation of the KANU regime whose logo was a cockerel.

“Who erected this Jogoo at the Bungoma CBD roundabout? Does this symbolize the return of KANU regime?”, asked the DAP-Kenya Deputy Party Leader.

“What does it mean to the people of Bungoma? Ama nani ndiye Jogoo (etwaya) hapa Bgm? How can this be explained to a visitor?”

This follows a move by the County Government of Bungoma to install the controversial statue on the Dual Carriageway near the bus stage.

The installation was seen as part of the beautification to style up the 6.5KM dual carriageway during President William Ruto’s visit to Bungoma where the Madaraka Day celebrations were held.

Bungoma County was one of the regions that faced the hostility of the Kanu regime under the then President Daniel Moi.

Political analysts have argued that KANU denied the Bukusu land a chance to enjoy social-economic development.

Other complains include election justice, nepotism and corruption.
