Hours after war broke out in Kisii at the burial the Deputy governor Joash Maangi’s father where MPs were locked up in a fistfight, the ODM party has talked.
The Orange party through their leader Raila Odinga has distanced itself from the failures of the ruling Jubilee party administration.
This comes amid constant allegations by Deputy President William Ruto that ODM got into the government thereby derailing their agenda to the people.
“Sisi hatuku kubaliana tudandie kwa serikali ya Jubilee, tujiweke kando! Nimeskia eti ODM iko katika serikali…mambo yameanza kwenda mrama ndipo unaskia ni kwa ajili ya fulani na fulani. Mtoto ni wenu…mlienda kwa field mkiwa wawili sasa baba anasema huyo si mtoto wangu, ni mtoto wa nani?
“(We, as ODM, never agreed to join the Jubilee government, let’s stay out of their mess. I’ve heard it said that ODM is part of the government and nothing could be further from the truth! Those saying such things are aware that they have failed and are only looking to cast the blame on someone else. The two of you went to bed together and now that a baby has been born the father wants to deny the child, whose child is it if not yours?),” the former PM posed.
The former premier further cautioned his party members to dissociate themselves from the Jubilee squabbles aimed at soiling their good reputation.
“Sisi tuko nje! Hatutaki kupakwa matope na machafu ya Jubilee, yao ni yao! (Let’s stay completely away from the Jubilee party. We do not want to be dirtied by their mud and filth. Their troubles are their own!),” a frustrated Mr. Odinga directed.
