On Friday the 22nd of October, the Orange Democratic Brigade led by the Party Leader Raila Odinga camped in Kisii County where they seek to popularlize Odinga's bid for Presidency in the upcoming general elections.
Raila Odinga who was accompanied by other senior government officials including the Cabinet Secretary for Interior Dr Fred Matiang'i, Cabinet Secretary for Health Mutahi Kagwe and Eugune Wamalwa oversaw a fundraising ceremony in aid of dormitory project at Mwongori High School.
All the leaders who spoke during the even including the Cabinet Secretaries showed Support for the Former Prime Minister's bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta. While addressing the residents, the Suna East Member of parliament hon Junet Mohammed urged the Kisii people to embrace the Former Prime Minister and together form the next Government.
However during his speech, Junet made a remark which could not go well with a Section Of Kenyans who might feel will be left out of the next Government. Junet said that the next Government which will be formed by Baba, will be the Government for the people of Nyanza. He said that other regions has been in Government for a long time and cited it's now time for Nyanza People.
Junet even a joke that his Counter Part Cs Kagwe should not hear that because in his next visit in Kisii he will be a just visitor. This remarks on my view could Jeopardize the efforts made by Raila Odinga in seeking for support from other regions outside Nyanza region.
Other Kenyans too felt the same as they blamed Junet for Allegedly spoiling the votes for Raila Odinga. Other Criticized Junet for Allegedly bring division on tribal lines.
Here is the Video footage you can watch.
