A while back, Kimilili member of parliament, Didmas Barasa, in a widely unexpected move, but which had been predicted days earlier by Kenyan Report, announced a hiatus from any politics involving the Deputy President, and the Jubilee wing allied to him, popularly known as tanga tanga.
It now appears that his sabbatical is fast coming to an end, and the former military man has revealed that he won’t be making a comeback quietly. As a matter of fact, the Kimilili MP now says that when the leave of absence that he had taken from tanga tanga politics comes to an end, of which it will be doing so in about a month’s time, he will mark his comeback with the dropping of an exclusive dossier that he has been compiling during his hiatus.
The outspoken Bungoma legislator was speaking this while responding to a question that had been put to him by Sam Gituku during yesterday’s edition of Citizen TV’s morning show, Daybreak.
Alongside him was former Yatta member of parliament, Hon. Mwangangi, and also controversial Bahati MP and his tanga tanga counterpart, Kimani Ngunjiri. Joining them virtually were Igembe North legislator Maoka Maore, and Nyanza MP, Dr. Nyikal.
Didmas began by clarifying, and correcting what he termed as a popular misunderstanding that he had taken a blanket break from tanga tanga politics. He said that what he had announced was him taking a break from national tanga tanga politics, but not local ones. He said this was why he has still remained active in Bungoma, spreading the ideologies of UDA.
He said he had also met with Western leaders and would continue meeting them, from Mudavadi, Wetangula to speaker Ken Lusaka.
In an effort to reaffirm his commitment to tanga tanga, he said that there existed absolutely no danger of him dumping the DP to join the Mudavadi camp since his discussions with these leaders were issue based, and not political negotiations.
