Let’s show some maturity – Raila Odinga blasts Sudi, Ng’eno over Mama Ngina insult

Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga scolded Kapseret Member of Parliament and his Emurua Dikirr counterpart Johanna Ng’eno after they dragged her name in their fight with her son; President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The former Prime Minister called for politicians to desist from involving their rival family names when attacking them as they could still make their point by approaching them directly.

He recounted how as kids they would fight anyone who mentioned their parents’ names in any argument. He went on to point out that leaders need to show maturity.

“You don’t need to call the name of your colleague’s father or mother for you to make a point. You can still express your displeasure by approaching your fellow politician as a man. We all remember when we were little boys, whenever you could abuse a friend’s father or mother, a fight usually ensued. Let us show some maturity,” said Raila.

Raila Odinga’s statement was backed up by Siaya County Senator James Orengo who recounted his days during the late President Daniel Arap Moi’s regime.

He said that despite them not agreeing on a lot of things, he never uttered unprintable words against him his family, or any other politician.

Orengo recalled how when he was admitted to the hospital for the last time before he passed away, his sons Raymond Moi and Gideon Moi allowed him to chat with the late former President for 30 minutes before he died because of how he engaged him as his opponent.

“Talk as mature people. What do you stand for…What is your ideology, what do you want Kenya to be, what constitutional order do you want in this country? What type of government do you want in this country? This kind of debate is becoming empty in this country. We just know how to call each other names,” said Orengo.

A few weeks ago, Oscar Sudi and Johanna Ng’eno found themselves in trouble after they attacked Uhuru Kenyatta’s style of leadership while dragging Mama Ngina’s name.
