Pit Stop Lounge in Kisumu, which is associated with Lang’ata MP Phelix Odiwour alias Jalang’o, is said to be losing money since the politician’s drama with Raila began.
Pit Stop Dala’s management is now engaged in frantic damage control efforts and has come out to state that, contrary to popular belief, the lavish joint is not owned by the besieged politician.
Apparently, the Pit Stop lounge’s management used the fact that Jalang’o owned the establishment as part of its marketing strategy at first.
This was going well for them until Raila rebuked and disowned Jalang’o recently.
Customers are leaving the once popular bar, which the family behind it regrets.
The former Kiss 100 host led a delegation of eight ODM MPs and one independent lawmaker to State House, where they pledged to work with the ruling coalition.
They allegedly also promised Ruto that they would not attend Azimio rallies.
Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Tom Ojienda (Kisumu), Shakeel Shabir (Independent – Kisumu Town East), Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), and Gideon Ochanda were among those he led (Bondo).
Jalang’o quickly shared a photo of himself with President Ruto at State House, confirming that he was one of the MPs who had breakfast with the president and telling critics that he did not regret meeting with the president.
Raila called Jalang’o and his group traitors during the Azimio La Umoja Parliamentary Group meeting that followed immediately.
“Go to the State House and see the president as a personal friend. If you want to meet with the president to discuss issues affecting the party, you must first obtain permission from the party.
“These people must be recognized for what they are: traitors in the service of a revolution,” Raila said.
