The Orange Democratic Movement Party has come out gun blazing after a video of Naivasha Constituency Member of Parliament Hon Jayne Njeri Kihara attacking the Nyanza Community in front of Deputy President William Ruto in response to the recent statements made by Suna East MP Junet Mohammed about the Mt Kenya region.
According to the VIDEO, as shared by Orange Democratic Movement Party supporters, MP Jayne has been recorded informing Infront of DP Ruto "Your excellency in 2007, the Nyanza people occupied the premiss of our people. Up to now they have not moved out or paid us. At Kibera and Mathare they have never paid us anything. Ven in Naivasha they came and snatched our land even the businesses. That is the leadership Raila Odinga is pushing."
Taking the social media by storm, ODM leader Raila Odinga's close allies have started attacking the MP alleging that her statement is an incitement ahead of the next year's general election.
Borabu MP Hon Ben Momanyi has said that "I am extremely disappointed with remarks made by my colleague Jane Kihara. She not only depicts members of a certain community as goons but also triggers tribal animosity which could plunge Kenya into chaos. I urge DP William Ruto to talk to his troops, ask them to tone down."
Former ODM Communications Director Seth Odongo has also reacted informing that it seems "the handful Luos in UDA will not call out Jane Kihara because they are the most insignificant group for Ruto" alleging that they have a plan to "get Kikuyus to vote for Ruto, propagate Anti-Luo Hatred and Raila fear."
"If you are poor, Jane Kihara telling you to fear Raila is her mocking your poverty. You have nothing to fear but fear itself. You have, on the contrary, a realistic chance of being wealthy if you are a true hard worker. If you are a thief or want an easy way up, then FEAR," he has added.
Among others who have reacted include renowned journalist Abuga Makori and who has said that the "DCI should move with speed and arrest this foolish woman from Naivasha who is profiling Luos. Jane Kihara is a warlord. We will not have Kenya if we tolerate such reckless statements. Very low of her."
Blogger Robert Alai had also penned saying that "Kenyans should see the kind of incitement in UDA" adding that "Ask Jane Kihara house numbers where tenant doesn’t pay rent. Ask her to show you the houses...this is extremely wrong!"
