Friday August 16, 2019 - Kapseret MP, Oscar Sudi, has fired a warning at Deputy President William Ruto over the looming referendum.
Speaking during the official opening of the famous Tabang'loree Cultural Festival in Lodwar, Turkana County, Sudi told Ruto to his face that things will change between them during the referendum.
He broke ranks with the second in command over the referendum.
Kama kuna katiba itakuja your excellency tutaweka urafiki kando, msidharau ile ya Punguza Mizigo kwa sababu ni jamaa kutoka huku Turkana
“(If there will be any constitutional change, Your Excellency, we'll put friendship aside, and please don't dismiss the Punguza Mizigo Initiative because it originated from a Turkana resident),” Sudi told Ruto to his face.
The MP further noted that if Ruto supported an initiative that seeks to increase the number of leaders in the Executive, then he would be on his own.
"Tunataka kuambia hawa vigogo kama mnataka hawa watu wakue na pesa kwa mifuko tunaenda na Punguza Mizigo, lakini kama mnataka ile katiba ya kuongeza viongozi na mkue na magari mingi, hiyo msahau”
“(We want to let these political bigwigs know that if they want the common man to live an improved life, we will go with Punguza Mizigo, but if they want to increase posts in the Executive and have more cars, they better forget it,” the MP added.
