President William Ruto’s close ally, Kapseret MP Oscah Sudi has dared Opposition leader Raila Odinga to groom somebody from Luo Nyanza to take over the leadership mantle from him ahead of 2027.
The outspoken MP told the former Prime Minister to honorably retire from active politics due to his advanced age and instead groom a young blood to spearhead the fight for democratic space and other injustice
Speaking to the media at his Kapseret home in Uasin Gishu County, Sudi lashed out at Raila for being self centred by failing to groom young Turks to take over from him despite outliving his usefulness in
“We are urging the opposition leader to kindly retire from politics and groom somebody from Luo Nyanza to spearhead the job he has been doing for decades that include the fight for injustice and democratic
space in the country,” argued Sudi.
He lashed out at Raila for putting President Ruto’s administration at ransom through the mass action he has called on Monday and Thursday of every week.
The mass protests, Sudi stated, were to not only to tarnish the image of the new government but also sabotage the implementation of development programs under the Kenya Kwanza Administration.
He however, noted that despite the spirited efforts by Raila to bring down the country socially and economically, the government will endeavor to bring down the cost of living due to the goodwill and
support it was enjoying among the citizens.
“It is just a matter of time before you see the cost of essential goods drop down. So let us be patient and ignore the mass action being called by anti-government proponents.
Sudi also took issue with Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua, Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper Democratic Movement party and Roots party counterpart Prof George Wajackoya for following Raila blindly as he tried to destabilize the country through violent protests.
This comes amid hue and cry from the business community, transporters and hoteliers from major towns of Nairobi, Kisumu and Migori, as they count losses running into billions of shillings after the Opposition-led protests disrupted their business.
Their woes are bound to escalate even further following a declaration by the Opposition leader that the country-wide mass action will be held twice a week.
