The prime minister Raila Odinga today, Tuesday joined Elburgon mourners in Nakuru county to bid farewell to the late Mololine Group Founder David Kibira Muchai who died barely a week ago after short illness.
While hosted with soft spoken Nakuru County Governor Hon Lee Kinyanjui, the ODM party leader Raila Odinga was accompanied by a dozen of ODM allied legislators including Suna East MP Hon Junet Mohammed, Nairobi County Women Representative Hon Esther Passaris, Hon Kimani Kuria, Hon Liza Chelule among other handshake confidants.
President Uhuru Kenyatta's close associate Hon Lee Kinyanjui has publicly declared to support and crusade for Raila Odinga's presidency citing that he has been too close to the Head of State when discharging duties and planning of both executive and legislative needs in the efforts of sealing the shortfalls and potholes in Jubilee government.
"You have been always too close to President Uhuru Kenyatta and your support to Jubilee government won't go unrewarded. You chipped in at the right time when President Uhuru Kenyatta wanted someone to work with after his partner (DP Ruto) stretched his political ambition out of Jubilee party" he said
He also revealed that for the last years, he has been voting for other presidential candidates but this time round, he will be forced to cast a vote in favour of Raila following the tremendous work he has done with the Head of State President Uhuru after Deputy president William Ruto detached from the ruling Jubilee government since March 2018.
"I have never voted for you (Raila) for these years you have been participating in presidential race but I think this time round, I will vote for you" he stressed. He also urged the Nakuru county to block leaders (specifically directed to DP Ruto) who have been criticizing the president in political rallies and public gatherings when at the same time claim to be part and parcel of the same government.
"I want to urge the great people of Nakuru to block leaders who hop from church to church while criticizing the President and at some point, they also claim to b part of the same government" he added.
