How Raila plans to reward Joho in 2022 – MP reveals

001 is sorted

The vocal Jubilee MP dismissed Odinga’s proposal to amend the constitution and introduce a three-tier government structure claiming it was meant to secure the political future of some leaders.

Kega stated that Odinga was starting an elaborate campaign to ensure that his close political allies, led by Governor Joho, are given a lifeline after completing their terms in 2022.

“I know Joho is a very close friend of Raila and his term will end in 2022. Raila wants to create jobs so that Joho can become a regional kingpin in coast province after he retires. The same will happen to Oparanya (Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya) and in all other areas,” Kega stated.

The Kieni MP, who is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, urged Kenyans to avoid making any constitutional changes that are geared towards creating jobs for specific individuals.

Kega’s allegations come a few days after Odinga denied that his campaign to have a constitutional amendment were motivated by 2022 politics.
