Tuesday July 16, 2019-Former Sports Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Echesa, sent a clear message to DP William Ruto on Monday.
Speaking while in Kakamega, Echesa maintained that his endorsement for a Ruto presidency in 2022, was hinged on one simple condition.
According to Echessa, he simply wants Ruto to declare that his Government would apportion a larger piece of the pie to the Luhya community.
Echesa then went on to castigate ODM party leader, Raila Odinga, for the slow pace of development projects in the greater Western region.
"Kisumu and Kakamega are worlds apart in terms of development. Raila has not brought any change for us here. In Kisumu there is an airport, investors flock there,” he disclosed.
He further mocked the ODM leader's promise to deliver his supporters to the land of Canaan, where milk & honey flowed freely.
"We are tired of gambling with the lives of our people, we have supported him more than enough without any returns. He promised you that he was taking you to a land of milk and honey only for him to join his foes,” he remarked.
Echesa then directed his attention to President Uhuru Kenyatta, asking him to prove that he is indeed a national leader, by securing Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, a plum Government job.
