Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has urged the Kenyan government to allow Koffi Olomide perform at the devolution meet, despite his pending visa problem.
The musician was deported from Kenya in July 2016 following an ugly incident at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), in which he was accused of assaulting one of his female dancers.
This was reportedly the major reason as to why his chances to making it to the country are still in jeopardy.
On Monday, Mr Oparanya said the promoters were making efforts to salvage Mr Olomide’s planned concert in Kakamega County during the Devolution Conference.
He also asked the Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa to intervene in a bid to have the tour cleared.
Olomidde was deported with three of his band members aboard a Kenya Airways flight to Kinshasa as he attempted to clear himself over allegations then. He spent the night at the JKIA Police Station.
