Western Jubilee MP Allege Why They Are Reluctant of Supporting Raila, Sends Message to Mudavadi

Benjamin Washiali who serves as the Member of Parliament for Mumias East Constituency has claimed that the Western Region is reluctant of supporting the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in his presidential bid.

He laments that despite the region backing up Raila in his past bids, he forgot the region after his handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta and took all the development to his Nyanza region, a move that did not go well with the Western region electorates.

"Before President Uhuru Kenyatta visited Kisumu, he gave out billion of shillings courtesy of the handshake for development projects. One would have expected Raila Odinga to reciprocate the support he has been accord by the people of Western but he did not."

In his interview with the Sunday Standard, Washiali who is supporting Deputy President William Ruto's bid urged the region supremo Musalia Mudavadi to join hands with the DP, expressing his confidence that Ruto is the best person to take after Uhuru.

"Musalia Mudavadi is an independent minded person. I will be the last person to fight for his downfall, I just hope he will make the right decision and join Ruto to form a formidable political force," he added.
