Oparanya Discloses to Raila Face to Face Why He Met Ruto

On Sunday, Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya together with other leaders accompanied ODM leader Raila Odinga to the funeral of Mama Ashura Saisi (Wife to Vihiga county Deputy Governor Patrick Saisi).

Speaking at the event , Governor Oparanya disclosed in front of Raila why he met Deputy president William Ruto months ago.

"We are neighbours with the Nandi's. Not long ago people complained that I have held a meeting with Ruto (Deputy President), I told them am talking to a neighbour so that I can bring him closer." he said.

"We will be lying to ourselves, if we say we alone as Luhyas will win the Presidency if we speak in one Voice. I don't want to tell you lies. For us to get into the next government we must hold talks with our neighbours." the vocal governor said.

Oparanya is among second term governors who have expressed interest in being part of the next government.
