Iko shida mahali

Boni Khalwale, Moses Wetangula and Raila Odinga

Former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale has been under fire with a section of Kenyans on Twitter after putting out a tweet castigating ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga and Professor George Magoha.

Khalwale, who is now a loyal supporter of Deputy President William Ruto, mentioned that Odinga is no longer their leader after he replaced Moses Wetangula with Siaya Senator James Orengo as minority leader and Professor Magoha for Rashid Echesa.

“Listen! @RailaOdinga is NOT our leader. Out of the handshake he has replaced us with his kinsmen from Siaya. Sen Orengo for @Wetangulam and Prof Magoha for Rashid Echesa” reads Khalwale’s tweet.

Hostile reception

The tweet irked Netizens with many calling him out for scooping too low in a bid to remain relevant in the political world.

Director of communications at ODM Party Phillip Etale, joined the conversation, stating that nowadays nobody cares about what he puts out there.

“Say that to the birds Mr Omwinyambi. Nowadays nobody cares about what you yap. The cheque is ready after this tweet” wrote Etale.

Reactions from KOT

Another user Abud Daud said “Where "our" means what here? He can't be your leader as Khalwale. Ruto is your leader. Unless you are purporting to speak on behalf of other people.”

Steve Ngenga “Uncalled for Mhesh! Today you're out of order Doc. Prof is above board. He is actually above petty tribal/ partisan politics”

George Ojwang “Who is the appointing authority again? And since when did Echesa and Prof Magoha became equals? Omwaaaaaami eeei ata kama ni imbalikha punguzeko Kitoko tu!”

Eugene Joseph ” But sir,you dont even support hon @Wetangulam who is your party leader. How do you expect such a man to stand against the Raila you hate... I supported u when i was under 18,but now i got a voters card,i cant support a tribal man.!! TAWE!!”

Wilson Gitau ” This political beggar is only relevant online and as long as the corrupt Ruto is still paying him the blood money”

John Kiptum “He replaced substance with foam, meritocracy over mediocrity....i respectfully disagree because WSR can quickly get you jobs in govt. Why is Raila the cause of all your problems? Surely???”
