The former prime minister Raila Odinga has been dubbed the number one adversary of the Luhya people by Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya.
The pair lambasted Raila Odinga for their unsuccessful presidential campaigns in a harshly worded statement.
They claimed that the former prime minister planned the NASA coalition’s demise in order to prevent them from taking over.
They said that Raila had benefited politically from their backing without giving something in return.
“You (Raila) planned to murder NASA to prevent a Mulembe son from becoming president. To you, Mulembe leaders who don’t support you are criminals first and foremost; nevertheless, if they act as your lapdogs, they are “weupe kama pamba.”
“Your comments have taken on a personal nature because the Mulembe Nation chose a different political course in this year’s General Elections. Part of the message read, “Mudavadi is a howling hound to you when he makes a passionate argument against the runaway economic miseries experienced by the majority of Kenyans.
They also claimed that Raila was to blame for the problems that several regional leaders were having, like Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, whose academic credentials are under investigation.
They continued by saying that the ODM leader made the decision to back President Uhuru Kenyatta’s selection of Polycarp Igathe because he didn’t want Westlands Member of Parliament Timothy Wanyonyi to take the reins of the government of the nation’s capital.
The pair believed that despite pressure from Uhuru’s Jubilee party, Raila should have supported Wanyonyi.
We are aware of the show you recently put on when you refused Hon. Tim Wanyonyi a ticket to run for governor of Nairobi.
“Your plans to keep Johnson Sakaja from also running for the same seat were then abandoned. Are Mulembe community leaders inferior Kenyans who can be played with whatever you please, we ask rhetorically at this point. Mudavadi and Wetangula posed.
