DP William Ruto ally and Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi hosted Raila Odinga’s son at his home in Uasin Gishu County.
The two held a meeting before proceeding to the burial of their mutual friend named Gregory Kipruto Koech.
In a facebook post, the DP’s ally said that they discussed a number of issues, considering they had strong family ties.
“This morning I hosted my friend Raila Odinga Junior in my Kapseret home. We had a successful discussion over a number of issues. We look forward to having more of such similar meetings to strengthen our family ties considering that Baba Raila Odinga is also my close friend,
“We later joined mourners at the burial of our mutual friend the late Gregory Kipruto Koech. May Greg RIP,” wrote Oscar Sudi.
Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko reacted to the meeting, saying that he is waiting to hear what people will say on Raila Junior visiting an ally of DP Ruto.
According to Sonko, when he visited Sudi’s home a few days ago, many people were not impressed.
“Kweli hii Kenya iko na wenyewe. Mimi nikiwa shughuli zangu Eldoret Oscar Sudi anipate aseme twende home tusalimie Familia yake inakuwa shida. Huyu ni Raila Jnr amemtembelea Oscar Sudi leo, wacha tuone watasema nini? Enjoy your evening,” Mike Sonko said.
This translates to; “( This country has its owners. When I am minding my business in Eldoret and Oscar Sudi invites me to his home to greet his family, it becomes a problem. Raila Junior has visited him today, let us see what they will say.)“
Even though the meeting raised speculations, Oscar Sudi is said to be a close friend of the Odinga’s.
The MP was a close friend to the late Fidel Odinga, and the relationship has extended to other family members.
On one occasion, Raila Junior came out to defend Oscar Sudi against attacks from the ODM party over his loose tongue.
“Actually, Junet as Minority Whip in the House and senior parliamentarian, I believe your position should be that even though you do not necessarily agree with what Sudi said you will defend his right to say it. Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of our democracy,” he tweeted, setting off a fierce debate.
