Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda responded to criticisms from ODM leaders who had accused him and others of collaborating with the government.
Ojienda's comments came in the wake of the official inauguration of the Siaya County Aggregation and Industrial Park (CAIP) in central Alego on Thursday.
The event was presided over by Moses Kuria, the Cabinet Secretary for Investment, Trade, and Industry, with Siaya Governor James Orengo in attendance.
Ojienda expressed that those who had questioned the benefits of working with the government could now witness the results.
“This is what working with the government brings to our people,” he emphasised.
Ojienda also took to his X account (formerly Twitter) to congratulate Moses Kuria and Siaya Governor James Orengo.
"Congratulations to Waziri Moses Kuria and James Orengo on the official launch of the Siaya Industrial Park."
Senator Tom Ojienda was among the expelled rebels, along with MPs Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Gideon Ochanda (Bondo), and Phelix Odiwuor (Lang’ata).
They were accused of gross misconduct for diverging from the party stance and advocating for the policies of the Kenya Kwanza government, which the party opposes.
Kuria said the initiative is part of the government's broader effort to extend development to all Kenyan citizens.
“We are focusing on how we can improve the welfare of our people,” he stated.
Kuria emphasised that development has no bounds and assured the people that the Kenya Kwanza government possesses the capability to foster equal development throughout the country.
“Development has no boundaries and the Kenya Kwanza Government will continue developing all parts of this country equally,” Kuria affirmed.
