Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama has asked the ODM leader Raila Odinga not to deal with issues of Gisii region as a whole but realise that Nyamira and Kisii counties are separate entities.
Speaking at Kisii Stadium during a youth conference led by Raila, Nyagarama said Nyamira has been sidelined in many forums and in many cases, it's not recognized as a county of its own.
"Nyamira is a county of its own. We have put structures and facilities in place, we have stadiums for such functions and we should have our own youth conference in Nyamira and address our issues," said Nyagarama.
Responding to the matter, Raila said he recognises Nyamira and is planning for youth forum dubbed #kikao046 soon.
"Nyagarama, be prepared with everything we are coming to Nyamira after here," said Raila.
The youth conference hosted by Kisii Governor James Ongwae sought to address issues affecting youth both in politics and development.
