Former Kakamega county governor Wycliffe Oparanya has officially dumped Azimio la umoja One Kenya coalition party leader Raila Odinga and says he will no longer support him in future political activities.

In an unexpected announcement, the ODM party deputy party leader says he is now tired of supporting the former prime minister whom he now accuses of betrayal after filling key party and parliamentary positions with other people. He says the Western region has been Sidelined in sharing election spoils despite supporting Raila for five times.

He says that going forward, he will focus on uniting the western Kenya region and that he will chart a different political path so that he becomes part of the government in 2027. He says that Raila has betrayed the trust of the western Kenya community.

“I’m offering myself from now to lead the unity drive of our people. I am done with Raila Odinga and even if he badmouths me, God forbid, he will not be forgiven,” Oparanya said during an event in Kakamega yesterday.

Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Nassir has defended his latest meeting with President William Ruto, saying that as the county boss, he has to work with the national government for the interests of the residents.

Reacting to rumors that he was jumping ship from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance to Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance, Nassir said that he is a member of the ODM party led by Raila Odinga, and that will remain as so.

He went on to say that the country is past politics, and residents want development, and for that to happen, he ought to join hands with the national government, adding that such do not mean he is joining the UDA party or the KKA camp.

“Ruto as the president was elected by the people of Kenya, same to me, I was elected by the people of Mombasa. The focus is on the people, and people should know that respect is not a title, it is earned. The same way I would need the national government to respect me, is the same way I must reciprocate the same respect to the national government.”
