A random Luo man has urged Nyanza residents not to fight to the death in pushing for the ODM leader Raila Odinga to be the President.
The man whose identity is still unknown said it was high time people from Raila’s backyard refrain from the chaos that has been witnessed in the last four General Election where innocent Kenyans have lost their lives pushing for a Raila presidency.
“Mbona sisi wajaluo kutoka Nyanza tumekuwa programmed na patron wetu Raila Odinga kwamba each and every election cycle to fight each and every presidential candidate opposed to Raila’s presidency?
“Why is it that we people from the Nyanza region have been programmed by our patron Raila Odinga that each and every election cycle we must fight every presidential candidate opposed to Raila’s presidency?” he posed.
He said so many Luos died in the 2007/08 Post Election Violence (PEV) after Raila protested the Electoral Commission of Kenya results that declared late President Mwai Kibaki as the president-elect.
He said a similar trend was witnessed in the 2013 and 2017 General Elections after the former Prime Minister lost to Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“In 2007, so many luos died. In 2013, Raila was contesting against President Uhuru Kenyatta, how many luos did we lose as a result of that election because Raila was insisting that he must be president. In 2017, how many people do we know were killed because Raila Odinga’s presidential ambition supersedes the lives of Luos who believes in him,” he said.
The Luo man further warned Kenyans about the dangers of voting for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s handshake partner stating that he will never serve the interests of the common Mwananchi but of the few Mt Kenya billionaires including the Head of State.
“We must vote for change, peace, and development. We must vote for the face of Kenya. If you elect a president appointed by Uhuru Kenyatta, that president will never serve your interests. He will serve the interests that suit Uhuru Kenyatta and not you common voters,” he said.
