Shock as RAILA’s cousin, JOKOYO MIDIWO, now supports RUTO on selling Baba to Britain-He may get mad at this

Tuesday June 4, 2019-Former Gem Member of Parliament Jakoyo Midiwo has defended Deputy President William Ruto regarding his joke about former Prime Minister Raila Odinga last Thursday.

Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Nairobi, Ruto who is a strong critic of Raila, joked about the nation's readiness to offer him for the vacant prime ministerial seat in Britain.

The same was met with criticism and anger from Raila's allies under his Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party who found the joke malicious and disrespectful.

However, Jakoyo who's Raila's cousin, on Tuesday defended the DP, noting that he never meant any harm and was just trying to be hilarious.

The former National Assembly Minority Whip said that he has always been a critic of the DP, but really thinks that he is being wrongfully reprimanded on this one.

"DP Ruto's national prayer breakfast joke, I see nothing wrong with this joke, you know my views on William Ruto but on this, I think tunamchokoza (we are provoking him)," he said during an interview.

Midiwo stressed on the need to for the prayer breakfast to be given more national outlook because it currently appears like a politicians' affair.

"This occasion is not about praying for us (Politicians) it’s about praying for all of us (Kenyans) and for our future," he added.

The event was presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta and attended by top state officials, but Raila was not in attendance.
