Thursday, June 23, 2022 –Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has today hit back at both Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula’s over their Monday outburst against ODM Party leader Raila Odinga.
The outgoing county chief on Wednesday June 22 noted with deep concern the verbal attacks which the two Kenya Kwanza principles had aimed at Odinga and said this was quite unfortunate to come from men whose sole aim is to create a wedge against Luos and luhyas.
Last Monday, Mudavadi and Wetangula organized a late press meeting in which they used to destroy the image of both Mr. Odinga and Oparanaya saying the Azimio leadership had nothing for their region.
But Oparnya has now told them to divert their frustrations elsewhere now that there political boat is quickly sinking.
“Mudavadi should be grateful to Hon Odinga for getting him out of political limbo that he was thrown into by former Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga when he humiliated him in the Sabatia Parliamentary contest in 2002. It is Hon Odinga who held his hand and brought him back into political limelight raising him to the position of Deputy Prime Minister,” he said.
Terming their attacks as insincere and unfounded, Oparanya further explained how his boss Mr. Odinga even made Mudavadi a prime minister at some point; a post Mudavadi squandered for five years and returned home empty handed.
He challenged the ANC Party boss to show any record he had achieved for their community for the past 30 years he has been in national politics.
