Monday June 17, 2019 - Kapseret MP, Oscar Sudi, has become the first Jubilee Party lawmaker to respond to President Uhuru Kenyatta after he vowed to crush Jubilee leaders who engage in Tanga Tanga rallies.
Speaking in Kasarani during the annual Akorino gathering on Sunday, Uhuru read riot act to Mt Kenya MPs who are drumming up support for Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential bid in 2022.
“This “mikora” (thugs) we’ve chosen and are politicking, let them not think that I am their small boy,” Uhuru said.
The President said that he did not owe his critics any apologies.
“I was not given votes by them, I am the one who looked for votes for them,” he said.
Oscar Sudi has now told off the President and reminded him that it is the leaders who he is castigating that put him in office.
Here is the long Facebook post that Oscar Sudi wrote after Uhuru read riot act to Mt Kenya political leaders.
From today henceforth, I Oscar Sudi have decided to quit drinking. I urge my fellow drinkers Raila,Mudavadi, Uhuru and others to follow suit. This is because I have noticed that leadership doesn’t rhyme with influence of alcohol. We will not succeed if this trend continues.
Today, I was shocked to hear our Jubilee member number 1 H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta claiming that nobody assisted him in hunting votes and further insinuating that there are leaders who were elected courtesy of him.
Personally, I was elected by the great people of Kapseret. I owe them alot of respect especially to my campaigners and moreso all voters. I am very grateful and I’ll respect them as long as am I still hold this position. The same happened to those who successfully vied for MCA,MP, Senator, Governor and the President himself.
The President must therefore apologize to all his big supporters and Kenyans at large for the sacrifices they made until he clinched presidency.
