As Siaya County governor James Orengo and Kakamega governor Ferdinand Barasa, both of the Orange Democratic Movement party, lined up behind Jack Wamboka of the Democratic Action Party of Kenya to defend Nairobi County governor Johnson Sakaja, the number of leaders from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition Party defending the county boss is getting ever bigger. Former Jubilee Party nominated senator Isaac Mwaura is now coming out to allege the reason this is happening.
Mwaura was speaking while making an appearance on Radio Jambo’s weekly political show Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which was hosted by the station’s presenter Bramwell Mwololo. Alongside him In the studio were KANU Political Affairs Director Fred Okang’o, and self-confessed Hustler Movement spokesperson Chris Bitok. Nairobi County Executive Committee Member Talent, Skills, Development and Care Brian Mulama, who is also the Amani National Congress Nairobi Chapter Chairman was also in on the action. Lawyer and activist Brian Weke connected with them through the phone.
Mwaura explained that despite garnering most of his votes from Kenya Kwanza Alliance voters, Sakaja then went ahead to nevertheless appoint members of the opposition in his county government. Mwaura asserted that it is because of this dishonesty and treacherous behaviour from Sakaja that has made Azimio stick by him.
Worth noting is that a number of leaders from the opposition have defended Sakaja from criticism by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, and even pledged to protect him from any impeachment efforts.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua had spoken out against Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja’s recent plan to ban matatus from the CBD just last month.
In his address to Nyeri residents, the DP went bare-knuckled at Sakaja, telling him to cool it because it was he who mobilized voters to elect him in the August elections.
Gachagua criticized the county executive’s plan, claiming it would destroy the economy in the nation’s capital.
“I have told the Nairobi Governor that we will have a sitting with him because we are the ones who elected him. I mobilized Kikuyus in Nairobi to vote for him and called him. Any decision that he makes which may affect business in Nairobi, we must first sit and discuss,” Gachagua said.
“Hatutaki speedy mingi sana, twende pole pole. Hio maneno ya kutoa matatu, hio haiwezekani. Sitaki tuanze kusumbua wafanyibiashara.”
