Orengo, Oparanya differ with Raila

NASA leaders feel short-changed, differ with Odinga

At the center of the fallout is the brutality meted out on Dr. Miguna Miguna that has the opposition leaders and supporters questioning the commitment of their Jubilee counterparts to the deal.

Lading in questioning the deal is Odinga’s deputy and Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya who has called for a review of the deal.

“We now want a structured cooperation, if we must have one at all…we are being taken for granted.” Oparanya stated.

“I am wondering how beneficial the handshake was going to be to us if it could not secure Miguna’s freedom,” Oparanya stated.

While Odinga maintained that the deal was a win-win situation, Siaya senator James Orengo suggests that Odinga’s side was shortchanged in the deal, taking recent developments into account.

The Nation reported Orengo questioning the deal following the detention and deportation of the fiery lawyer.

“Raila has given everything but Uhuru (President Kenyatta) has given nothing,” Orengo said.

Referring to recent instances when state officials defied court orders and harassed Miguna’s lawyers before deporting him, Orengo noted that President Uhuru Kenyatta was taking Odinga’s gesture for granted.

“Without his encouragement or support, no single State official would dare defy court orders,” said the senator.

This comes as NASA supporters continue to blame Odinga for failing to secure Miguna Miguna’s return into the country and are now demanding a cancelation of the hadshake.
