Opposition leader Raila Odinga has asked Turkana residents to demand development projects instead of direct cash transfer of oil resources. Raila said if not handled carefully, the oil fortune in the region could turn into a ‘curse’. Speaking at Loima sub-county Raila said there are many countries that have oil but they haven’t gone far in terms of development, adding that oil can be a blessing or a curse to the community. He said countries that have good initiative plans for oil resources are wealthy and stable as oil resources can benefit the present and coming generation. Raila said Nigeria is a good example where many problems have been portrayed due to oil resources sharing. Turkana South MP James Lomenen had said that the community should get their five per cent share as cash transfer to fight poverty that has stricken the region for a long period.
