They are sworn political enemies
Budalangi MP Raphael Wanjala accused Ababu of causing interference saying that he never showed up to any of his development projects when Ababu served as area MP for two terms.
“When he was MP for 10 years I never went to any of his development projects, we could only possibly meet in funerals. I also ask him now that I have the mandate to perform, to deliver to the people of Budalangi,” he said.
“You cannot reduce me to start playing small politics when I’m playing politics in Washington D.C. I’m now dealing with global issues,” said Ababu Namwamba.
This is not the first time the two political rivals are engaging in a fight.
