Siaya Governor James Orengo has promised to work with President William Ruto for development.

Speaking during Ruto's tour of the Nyanza region, Orengo commended President Ruro for not weaponising development.

"The Constitution says that the county governments must work with the national government, nobody will ask me why  I have come here; on the politics, we are playing, the constitution resolved that,” Orengo said.

Orengo defended Ruto's tour as a development tour rather than a political one, saying the time for politics will come.

"We have come here because of development and not politics, when I got information that the President will be coming for development, I said I would attend," he said.

"I want it to be known that I have come here for development and not playing politics, politics will wait for its day."

The ODM leader Raila Odinga's ally said that he will stick to the opposition party.

"All these people here were in ODM, the president was in ODM, Ochieng' and Owalo were also in ODM; I am also in ODM for good. What I am against is that you must go to State House to get development, that is false," he said.
