Kanini Kega has defended Suna East MP Junet Mohammed for saying Raila presidency belongs to Nyanza and claimed the statement by Junet was in jest and both the mountain and Lake remain united urging Kenyans not to create a mountain out of an anthill with the statement.
Kega added that the Lake and the Mountain remains united.Baba is a statesman. My colleague Junet statement was in jest.Let's not create a mountain out of an anthill and the statement by the ODM legislator has not augured well with a faction of politicians mostly from Ruto hustler nation camp.
Unluckily Junet found himself at the centre of criticism after his remark during a fundraiser in Nyamira county presided over by ODM leader Raila Odinga and Interior CS Fred Matiang'i and jokingly claimed that should former prime minister Raila Odinga bag the presidency power will be centred in his Nyanza backyard.
Besides he also jokingly told Health CS Mutahi Kagwe who was also present at the event that he will soon come to the region as a visitor once Raila rises to the helm of the country leadership.
