Tuesday November 27, 2018 - Kakamega Governor, Wycliffe Oparanya, has laughed off claims by Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, that he is now the official opposition leader in Kenya.
Over the last few weeks, Mudavadi has been claiming that he is the official Opposition Leader after NASA leaders, Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka, joined the Government.
But in an interview with a local daily on Monday, Oparanya who doubles up as Raila's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Deputy Party Leader said that Mudavadi is being insincere.
He maintained that Mudavadi has nothing to offer in line with the 'opposition leader' tag that he is trying to allocate himself.
''Some people just speak politics to be relevant but when prompted to be more proactive they recoil in fear,'' the second term Governor said.
He further said that both Odinga and his party are no longer part of the National Super Alliance (NASA) formed in the run-up to the previous 2018 General Election.
“We have since crossed the bar. We are no longer interested in the opposition outfit called NASA as it is not feasible anymore,'' he said.
