What started as simply just tough talk and party rivalry on the airwaves is now expected to end up in the corridors of the courts in a few hours time, after the courts open this Monday following a long weekend. If the menacing threat that political analyst and Deputy President supporter, Gerald Bitok issued, is to be taken seriously, then by now, his legal team is in all likelihood, within the final stages of preparing files for the case which they intend to launch against Millie Odhiambo’s nephew, Brian Weke.
The two clashed during an appearance on Radio Jambo. They were guests on the station’s weekly political show called Mazungumzo wazi wazi which airs every weekend, and is hosted by Bramwell Mwololo. Millie Odhiambo’s nephew, Brian Weke, who has previously been an activist, has also tried his hand at politics but failed to capture the Nairobi parliamentary seat that he vied for. He currently is focused on his Law profession.
Things got out of hand after Brian said something that didn’t quite go down well with Bitok concerning the scandal ridden Kenya Medical Supplies Agency, KEMSA.
Brian was in the process of explaining how the money that had been lost in fraudulent deals under the Jubilee administration would have been put to better use in terms of infrastructural development. While still on the scandal involving KEMSA, Brian insinuated that Bitok was perhaps one of the crooks who was involved in stealing money from the government body a while back.
Bitok’s response was vicious and lethal. He stated that he was an innocent hardworking Kenyan that had never been involved in any fraudulent dealings at KEMSA, and swore that he would be suing Brian Weke for slander. Weke’s protestations fell on deaf ears as he reiterated his promise to take the legal route.
While the KEMSA issue was the straw that broke the camel’s back, the too and fro had began from the show’s start, with Brian Weke telling Bitok to go sell sweets on the streets of Eldoret, while Bitok told him to go back to being a tout.
Before Weke had a law degree, he worked as a matatu tout in Nairobi.
