Kakamega: Oparanya's Deputy Sends Coded Message To ODM Over His 2022 Move After Meeting Mudavadi

Oparanya deputy governor Prof Philip Kutima has sent a coded message to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) lieutenants over his next political move ahead of 2022 general election.

This follows after the county deputy boss met Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi on Saturday in Kakamega.

In his message, Prof Kutima hinted at how he was still formidable politically despite facing tribulations orchestrated by his friends in ODM and his rivals outside the party who were keen on derailing his gubernatorial bid.

While talking about what he was going through as he seeks to succeed his boss Wycliffe Oparanya, the scholar used the example of biblical Samson who was tricked by Delilah and eventually had his strengths tamed through shaving of hair and removal of his eyeballs. Later, Samson was to regain his strength despite what was done to him.

"They shaved Samson, removed his eyeballs then tied him with chains thinking that they had tamed him. However, the hair grew, his strengths came back and he broke the chains," read part of Prof Kutima's message.

This comes after the deputy governor alleged that individuals within and outside ODM were keen at frustrating his 2022 gubernatorial ambitions. His boss is allegedly planning to endorse his rival Barasa.

Kutima and Barasa among the Kakamega 2022 gubernatorial hopefuls who are branding themselves in order to appeal to the electorate. Others include former senator Dr Boni Khalwale, Lugari Member of Parliament Ayub Savula and senator Cleophas Malala.
