Raila Dealt A Blow As Western Region Governor Who Supported Him Makes A Sudden U- Turn, Backs Ruto

Azimio One Kenya ally from Western region who earlier declared his support to ODM leader Raila Odinga now says he is against the ongoing politics.

The Kakamega governor Fernandes Barasa said if Raila will continue holding demos, he will not participate in any saying it was time to work with the Kenya Kwanza government.

The Governor added that he had put politics behind them as it was time to work and deliver for Kakamega residents.

This comes after Governor Barasa graced Azimio rally in Kakamega, last week.

During the meeting, the county boss supported Raila' s demands to the government.

Barasa now says politics were over and those who had started early election politics won' t receive his support.

Ruto earlier asked politicians to shun politics and work for Kenyans.

ODM leaders yesterday announced their support informing that if Raila' s demonstration were compliant to the constitution.

Kenya Kwanza leaders linked Azimio' s protests to those who don' t want to pay taxes. President Ruto alleged that the sponsors of rallies were against his directive to pay taxes.

Jubilee Party secretary general Jeremiah Kioni this week rubbished claims that Raila was scheming for a handshake with President Ruto.

The Jubilee official, a fierce critic of the President, said the opposition chief has no business having a political deal with Ruto whom he termed as ' planless and clueless.

The second in command of the head of state, Mr. Gachagua, spoke when he opened the Eldoret National Agricultural Society of Kenya Show on March 3, 2023, and urged the farmers to sell their stocks of maize before the new import arrived which will disrupt the current price.

The deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua, has informed the farmers that the government must first consider the farmers.
