Barely one week after welcoming President Dr William Samoei Ruto to her Homabay County, Governor Gladys Atieno Nyasuna Wanga today made fiery remarks against the Head of State.
Wanga was speaking at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology grounds during celebrations to mark Siaya Senator Oburu Oginga ‘s 80th birthday anniversary.
“Msilete hiyo nyoko nyoko yenu,” Ms. Wanga addressed herself to the Kenya Kwanza administration led by Dr Ruto who is currently on a foreign visit to Beijing, China.
Dr Oginga, Odinga’s elder brother, celebrated his 80th birthday at a ceremony held at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology grounds.
Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and members of the opposition Azimio La Umoja one Kenya coalition party Jeremiah Kioni, Mwangi Wairia, Eugene Wamalwa and Wycliffe Oparanya were some of the other leaders in attendance.
Speaking at the ceremony, Odinga warned President William Ruto to stop meddling in the political affairs of the Azimio coalition.
Accusing President Ruto of trying to divide the coalition through unfounded speculations, the opposition leader maintained that Azimio is intact and that the decision on who will be its next flagbearer shall only be made at an appropriate time.
Odinga spoke to the president’s recent remarks that he will only have Mr Musyoka to run against come 2027, telling Ruto to stop belittling the Wiper leader.
“He is speaking about Kalonzo as if they are equals, he (Musyoka)is far better than him (Ruto). He wants to divide us with talk about who will run for the presidency, yet we ourselves have not announced anything. We will show him he knows nothing; we will stand with Kalonzo because he is an honest person,” he said.
On his part, Kalonzo warned the President that he should stop talking about issues of the 2027 general elections when the contentious issues around the 2022 general elections have not been resolved.
He added that the person who will face President Ruto in the next election will have a walkover because Kenyans are already fed up with the Kenya Kwanza reign.
Just the other day Wanga was full of praises for the president.
Already there’s sharply differing reactions on the remarks made by the Homabay County Governor Gladys Atieno Nyasuna Wanga.
