RAILA ODINGA is jealous of KIDERO’s big money in harambees – He sees UHURU/ RUTO’s hand to finish him politically in LUO NYANZA
Saturday December 28, 2013 – A section of ODM legislators from Luo Nyanza on Monday complained that Nairobi Governor, Dr Evans Kidero, is using money allocated to Nairobi residents to conduct harambees in Luo Nyanza in order to finish Raila Odinga politically.
Led by Homa Bay Senator, Otieno Kajwang, the 35 ODM lawmakers said the move by Kidero and Rongo MP, Dalmas Otieno, of conducting harambees in Luo Nyanza is a move by the Jubilee Government to finish Raila Odinga politically.
Mr Kidero, whose activities in Nyanza have intensified over the past few months, has been a major concern to local leaders allied to Raila Odinga over suspicions that he is attempting to take over the region dominated by the Odingas since independence.
In November, Kidero presided over a fund-raising in aid of Tom Mboya Secondary School in Awendo, which raised Sh15 million, including Sh2 million from President Uhuru Kenyatta and Sh500, 000 from Deputy President, William Ruto.
Early this month, Dr Kidero presided over yet another event at Asumbi Catholic Church, which collected Sh11 million.
Elsewhere, Rongo MP, Dalmas Otieno, hosted another fund-raising in aid of Kamagambo Adventist Church, Ranen, which mobilised Sh6.4 million, including Sh1 million each from President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto.
Kidero and Otieno who have vowed to end poverty in Luo Nyanza but have now been branded as traitors by Raila Odinga and his lieutenants.
