Friday, July 1, 2022 –Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga has promised to continue working with Cabinet Secretary for Interior Dr. Fred Matiang’i in the next government.
Addressing supporters in Nyamira County today July 1, Raila told residents of Nyamira that he will still consider Matiang’i in his government.
“Hapa Nyamira kuna kijana wenu Fred Matiang’i. Huyu Matiang’i wale jamaa wanamchukia sana. Kila mara wanaongea juu yake ati huyu jamaa ataona. Wale wakiingia kwa serikali watapeleka Matiang’i ndani. Nawahakikishia kuwa Matiang’i ako na baba,” Raila told a charged crowd at Ekerenyo grounds in Nyamira.
He added that he will not just sit down and watch Kenya Kwanza-allied politicians attack Matiang’i every day because of their hatred to all State officers leaning towards Azimio la Umoja.
“Kama kuna jamaa anajaribu kuja kupiga kijana wangu, kwanza apige mimi kwanza. Matiang’i tutakaa naye ata baada ya tarehe tisa mwezi wa nane,” Raila announced.
Nyamira is the home county of Matiang’i.
