Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya has described former Prime Minister Raila Odinga as a dynasty that has been controlling Kenya since independence. While addressing Azimio La Umoja delegates at Tharaka Nithi on Tuesday, Munya described the Odinga family as a dynasty which has fought for Kenya’s liberation and helped many people overcome poverty.
“Some people say Raila is a true dynasty. Odinga’s family has fought for our country. Odinga’s family has helped many families. We enjoy Kenya’s democracy because of Raila,” Munya said.
Munya further slammed Deputy President William Ruto for describing himself as Mt. Kenya supremo.
“Kuna watu wengine wanajipiga kifua wao ni njia ya mlima Kenya. Watajua nani ndo kusema mlima Kenya. Sisi ndo kusema mlima Kenya na tumeamua baba lazima akuwe Rais,”Munya added.
Raila is currently popularilising his 2022 presidential bid as several Mt. Kenya leaders have called upon the former Prime Minister to pick Munya as his running mate in 2022.
