Mount Kenya Lawyer Defends Junet Mohammed Following His Remarks in Nyamira County

Vocal Mount Kenya lawyer, Wahome Thuku has gone public to defend the controversial ODM member of parliament Hon. Junet Mohammed following the remarks he made in Nyamira county yesterday during a fund drive in Mwongori high school.

According to Wahome Thuku, Junet was just right to say that Raila's presidency will be a massive win to the Nyanza region only. He argued that Junet is not a Luo, but an elected leader from Nyanza hence his remarks should not be manipulated.

"And yes I grew with him totally, when the presidency goes to Nyanza, power will be in Nyanza, that is a fact," he said.

He further confessed that he is very comfortable with the power being in Nyanza since the president will work across the country and the only thing Nyanza people will gain a lot compared to other regions is just being proud.

"I am more comfortable with power being in Nyanza, Luos will only be proud about it and nothing more," he said.

Leaders especially those allied to the deputy president William Ruto have castigated the remark Junet Mohammed terming it as threat and an overview of what they might do if Raila wins the 2022 presidential election.
