Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has told NASA co-principals Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi to leave opposition leader Raila Odinga alone and mind their own business.
Speaking when he joined Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa in distributing relief food to floods victims at Akiriamas Primary School in Teso South on Sunday, the Governor told the two leaders to wait for their time “or look for their own country.”
” Uhuru and Raila are now working together following the symbolic handshake. The President’s agenda is affordable health care, housing, and food security. These are what we should embrace to benefit our people.
Much time was wasted on politics and election petitions. With that now behind us we need to focus on development in the next five years and forge a united and peaceful country,” Ojaamong said.
At Bumala “B” Catholic Church, Wamalwa said he is supporting calls for unity in Western Kenya aimed at bringing all communities together instead of alienating others.
” What I don’t want to hear are plans by my brothers Wetangula and Mudavadi to disband Ford Kenya and ANC and form Mulembe Party that will bring all Luhyas together. Where will my uncles the Tesos who are part of the Western community bloc and the Sabaots from Mt Elgon go under such arrangement?” he wondered.
He said even if Mulembe Party was formed it cannot form the next Government if we don’t seek the support of other communities across the country.
Wamalwa said time for tribal parties is long gone.
” What we want is politics of unity, thus the need for the two leaders to join hands with the President and Raila to forge a united and peaceful country. Let’s emulate the late Masinde Muliro who included all communities in the country including Jaramogi Oginga Odinga (father to Raila) and Kenneth Matiba to form Ford and the late Wamalwa Kijana who brought on board Mwai Kibaki to form NARC which united with NDP to form Government,” he added
