I Was Surprised When Raila Appointed Me As Finance Minister Designate, Wycliffe Oparanya Says

Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya

Wycliffe Oparanya has today addressed his appointment as finance minister designate. Raila Odinga while unveiling Martha Karua as his running mate also gave Musalia Mudavadi the finance ministry should he win August general elections.

Oparanya has said the decision to appoint him in that powerful ministry did not come from him. Raila was asked by leaders from Western region to give Oparanya a substantive post. Oparanya says he was not on that meeting when the request was made. He was equally pleasantly surprised to hear Raila announce that at KICC.

Oparanya is upbeat on the task at hand. He has said exuded confidence that Azimio will win the next general elections. The Kakamega governor says he will use the finance ministry to lead the country into economic recovery path. Oparanya also praised Raila Odinga. He said that he has worked with Raila Odinga for many years and that he is a leader Kenyans can trust.
