Residents wrap up year in style

Uasingishu county residents wrapped up 2015 in style as they gathered at 64 Stadium early Thursday to witness bull fighting; an event associated with communities from Western Kenya.

The event graced by Governor Jackson Mandago however ended in disappointment as the two bulls ferried from Kakamega did not face off.

The event depicted the cosmopolitan nature of the County, and efforts by the county executive to promote peaceful co-existence.

Two bulls – Fourteen and Messy were ferried from Kakamega to participate in the fight.

Governor Mandago said this was an event of its own kind, and the first time ever to be held in Uasingishu.

He said the county executive was committed to enhancing peaceful co-existence through art and cultural activities.

The event was however cut short after bull Fourteen cowed in and ran away from Messy.

Messy is said to be the champion bull of Western Kenya, and Fourteen could not stand the sight of his opponent.

Mandago called on communities living in the county to register in large numbers and vote in the 2017 general elections for leaders in the county.

He also challenged political leaders in the county to join Jubilee Alliance Party-(JAP), saying this was the vehicle that would help root out tribal parties by uniting kenyans.

“I am calling on the opposition to follow suit and form one strong opposition that will help in uniting the country come the 2017 general elections,” said Mandago..

The event however failed to meet its taste as the two bulls did not fight after one ran away.
