Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale has weighed in Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga's postponement of planned Wednesday public engagement rallies and protests starting from Kamkunji ground in Nairobi to other parts of the country.
The second time senator advised the Luo region to defy Raila's call for protests aimed at seeking public opinion on the expulsion of embattled 4 dissenting Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners.
The legislator accused the former prime minister of practicing selfish-politics, saying that he (Raila) vouched for his brother Oburu Odinga to secure Siaya senatorial seat, Winnie Odinga (daughter) for Arusha-based regional East African Legislative Assembly (EALA), Ruth Odinga (sister) for Kisumu parliamentary position and his cousin for CRA post.
Mr Khalwale protested that ODM boss reserves his supporters for riots demonstrations that has resulted to extra-judicial killings and maiming of hundreds of his fans.
"Our fellow Kenyans from Luoland. Stand up & be counted. RAO gave Siaya Senate seat to his brother, Kisumu MP to his sister, EALA MP to his daughter & CRA to his cousin. Now he wants to reserve riots, tear gas & death for your children" said Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale.
Khalwale's outbursts comes jointly after Raila Odinga called off the planned Wednesday public rallies, citing National Examinations.
