Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has ridiculed Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga after he said that political rivals were not ready for the political formation that was coming ahead of the 2022 General Elections, referring to it as a Tsunami.
However, Moses Kuria trashed the ODM leader’s warning saying that he had been giving empty warnings since days immemorial.
“The number of times Baba has promised Tsunamis that never be. Soon the real Tsunamis will sue Baba for tarnishing its image,” he said.
On Saturday, while speaking during the burial of his late cousin, former Gem Member of Parliament Jakoyo Midiwo, the former Prime Minister said that a political machine is in the works as he trashed Deputy President William Ruto’s bottom-up economy model stating that it belongs in the trash.
While mocking the second in command, Raila Odinga said that someone wants people to start from the bottom by giving them wheelbarrows and asking them to start being vegetable vendors.
The former Prime Minister warned political rivals that the Tsunami that is being formed behind the scenes would sweep the country in next year’s General Elections.
He said that there is a heavy wind coming and it was going to turn into a Tsunami, and that is why he wants his people to know that they know where they are going.
He added that other political rivals who have been chest-thumping are just passing wind.
Raila also assured the mourners that through their competent team, the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was going to pass, and things will move forward.
Raila Odinga also paid tribute to his cousin Midiwo saying that they grew together, and he mentored him as he joined the world of politics going on to become an astute debater who left a big record in Parliament.
The ODM leader’s statement comes a few days after his party and President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ruling political outfit Jubilee revealed that they were going to have a round table and see how they can form a coalition which would see both parties front one Presidential candidate in the next year’s polls.
Some of the leaders who attended Midiwo’s funeral were Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, Siaya County Governor Cornel Nyong’o, his Kisumu counterpart Anyang Nyong’o, some National Assembly members as well as Senators.
