The Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) has accused the wheelbarrow party UDA of plagiarising its economic recovery plan.
According to LREB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr Abala Wanga, Deputy President Ruto’s associate Eliud Owalo ‘copy-pasted the ideas which he came across when he was hired by the bloc in 2019 as a consultant’.
Speaking at his office at Kisumu Town Hall, Abala said he will soon write a letter to ask Owalo to stop using the contents of the plan and parading it in public meetings as his.
“I was stunned to read through what my friend Eliud Owalo put forth as Ruto’s economic ideas for Western and Nyanza regions,” he said.
Abala said Owalo was contracted by LREB as a consultant to do the strategic plan and was given the organisation’s blueprint to generate ideas from.
“We gave him our economic blue print from where he got all the ideas and a lot of information to build the plan,” he said.
He claimed that what Owalo was sharing in public forums was obtained from the plan.
“What he is parading now in public spaces, telling all and sundry that are Ruto’s ideas for Western and Nyanza, are all cut and pasted from our documents,” he said.
“He has just lifted everything from the document and we are going to write a letter to restrain him from using our information. This is plagiarism of the highest order,” Wanga said.
Owalo denied the claims
