From late last week, Raila Odinga has been the subject of allegations and counter-allegations that he had not only met beleaguered Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru but that he would be defending her against the impeachment process started by Kirinyaga MCA’s.
The rumours have swirled with the former PM not only denying the allegations but also coming out to state the Orange Democratic Party’s stance on the matter.
Speaking to the press today morning, Raila disagreed with his close ally Junet Mohammed saying that he wasn’t involved in plot to save the governor’s job.
Raila stated that he will not participate in the debate explaining that it would be up to to the Senate to independently determine whether to retain or oust her. “The Senators should carry out the mandate independently. I don’t need to save anyone. Let someone defend themselves based on the facts presented,” stated Raila.
This is contrary to the National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohamed who revealed that the pary planned to save Waiguru.
“Right now, women are the ones leading the country. We have women as governors in this country, even though one of them is facing some challenges but we are with her. She did nothing wrong, people just don’t want to be led by women. As ODM party, we will stand with her because we believe in women leadership,” stated Junet.
“We want women to have an equal chance at leadership in this country. Don’t come telling me this and that nonsense, we want women to lead this country,” he reiterated.
