Eseli Simiyu Reveals Finer Details of What Uhuru Said About Raila After He Met Western Region MPs

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday met a section of Western Region members of parliament and who are supporting the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's presidential bid

The head of state meeting with at least 32 MPs and four governors came a day after ANC party boss Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula on Sunday announced that they will be working with Deputy President William Ruto.

Speaking with the Star on phone, Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu revealed that during the State House meeting, Uhuru expressed his confidence that Raila will be forming the next government.

He is also reportedly expressed his disappointment in both Wetangula and Mudavadi in what he termed as a 'betrayal' owing to the past couple of meeting he had with them alongside ODM boss Mr. Odinga.

Simiyu adds that the president asked the MPs to hit the ground running in their region to consolidate all the votes for Raila ahead of the elections.

"The head of state said he thought they were friends only for Mudavadi to betray him. He said clearly that the fight will not be a easy one but he asked us to hit the ground for campaigns without any delay," said Simiyu.
