Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has not yet declared that he will vie for the top seat in 2022 but he has been going campaigning in almost all parts of the country selling his 2022 agendas. But Kenyans are not fools because they have been treated to this kind of shenanigans during the 2017 election where the NASA coalition delayed to name their Presidential candidate.
A few days ago we heard a disturbing speech from Junet Mohamed in Nyamira where he said that Raila Odinga' s government will be a Nyanza affair and other people from other regions will be coming as visitors. This statement sparked a mixed reaction and it was evident why Kenyans are always fighting to have their person at the top seat.
Today UDA Chairman and a close friend of Raila Odinga Johnson Muthama took to his social media platform to expose the ODM leader. According to him when Raila gets power in 2022 then he always rewards cronyism. This means that he will appoint people that he is closely related with including his immediate family members.
This is evident during the selection of the people who will represent ODM in the East Africa Legislative Assembly where he decided to appoint his eldest brother Oburu Odinga. In the 2017 election, he took his daughter to Kibra Constituency and urged the locals to vote for him against the late Ken Okoth. This move was heavily bashed by Kenyans.
" Raila Odinga is a selfish individual who rewards cronyism at the expense of his supporters. It is no wonder he' s the longest- serving MP for Langata Constituency which houses Kibra, one of the biggest slums in the world. Despite being his political bedroom, the people are still, " the Former Machakos Senator asserted.
Johnson Muthama is a close friend of Raila Odinga despite their different political difference but in 2017, the UDA Chairman was one of the Financial supporters of the NASA coalition. According to him, Raila Odinga has the worst track record noting that he was once a serving MP of Lang' ata Constituency that comprised Kibra then.
What is your take on this Matter by Muthama?
