Siaya — Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya presidential candidate will have it rough driving his agenda in parliament should Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) supporters fail to vote in party’s candidates in the forthcoming general elections, Siaya senator, James Orengo has said.
Orengo, and East Arica Legislative Assembly member, Oburu Odinga said the predicament facing the united States of America president, Joe Biden where he has not been able to drive his agenda through the US congress awaits Raila Odinga should he become the president without the requisite number of parliamentarians.
Speaking at Uriri in West Gem ward where they met ODM grassroots officials from Gem constituency, Orengo who is vying for the Siaya gubernatorial seat said that the country will miss a lot should national assembly and senate decide to frustrate the ODM leader who is seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta during the August 9 polls.
He said that every vote casted was important in the presidential elections and urged Siaya residents to ensure that they turned up to the last man to vote for Raila and all ODM candidates.
EALA member, Dr. Oburu Odinga said Raila was destined to become the president and implored the locals not to let him down.
“There is nowhere where Raila Odinga will get maximum support and members of parliament, senators, governors and members of the county assembly if not here in Siaya” said Oburu.
Oburu at the same time castigated Raila’s main rival, deputy president William Ruto for masquerading as a champion for the down trodden while all through he has been associating with oppressive regimes. – Kna
