Raila Junior condemns ODM leaders

Raila Junior, son to ODM party leader Raila Odinga, hit out at several ODM leaders highly condemning their actions.

Junior took to his Twitter account on the 15th of September 2020, writing a critic message seemingly aimed at Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho. The former Prime Minister’s son further claimed that ODM is losing focus.

He went on to explain that ODM leaders should desist from attacking other political leaders. Raila Junior also noted that ODM is not all about luxury. He further insisted that party members should focus on service delivery to Kenyan citizens.

“We as ODM need to find our way back to basics. We’re not just about private jets and slay queens whilst abusing rival politicians; we have a development plan clearly outlined in our manifesto. Let’s focus on service delivery, democratic space, protecting private citizen rights,” he tweeted.

Joho’s remarks

This tweet comes after Joho blasted DP William Ruto claiming that he’s lying to the public that he is also a hustler. Joho further questioned which hustler can afford to travel around the country in choppers and fleets of cars.

“It is absurd for the deputy president to claim to represent the poor. Which hustler flies across the country with fleets of cars and helicopters?” Joho posed.

Uphold democracy.

Raila Junior also called out the National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohammed. According to the ODM leader’s son, Junet had failed democracy by failing to support the freedom of speech. He further insisted that it did not matter whether Junet agreed with what Sudi said or not.

“Actually, Junet Mohamed as minority whip in the house and senior parliamentarian, I believe your position should be that even though you don’t necessarily agree with what Oscar Sudi said you’ll defend his right to say it. Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of our democracy,” Raila Junior lashed out.

However, Junet maintained his ground and vocally disagreed with Sudi’s statements. The Suna MP further accused the DP of being behind Oscar Sudi’s words.

“It is dishonest and old school for Ruto to send his people to insult other leaders, including the president then pretend to tell them to stop. You cannot abuse leaders to gain power, including mothers. You have no business insulting Mama Ngina because insulting her is insulting all mothers in this country.”
