Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa who had declared in February that he will take a four-month sabbatical from politics has resurfaced.
Before he went out of the political limelight, Barasa had been viewed as damping his activism in connection with the United Democratic Alliance Party and Deputy President William Samoei Ruto. In his own words, he had indicated that he will be concentrating on the unification of leaders from Western Kenya.
Perhaps being privy to negotiations out of the glare of the public limelight Barasa has resurfaced to claim that the ODM Party wants to derail Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya in his quest to be the next president of the Republic of Kenya.

Reacting to revelations made by the deputy president that he has met Governor Oparanya more than five times to discuss politics and the possibility of their teaming up together, Barasa said such consultations should be encouraged.
It would appear that Didmus Barasa may have changed the platform but his convictions in support of Ruto remain the same.
