Babu Owino Pens an Emotional Letter to Raila After Uhuru's Dalliance With Mariga
Sept. 19, 2019
Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has penned down an emotional message to ODM party leader Raila Odinga moments after President Uhuru Kenyatta met Jubilee party’s candidate in Kibra by-elections McDonald Mariga.
President Kenyatta on Wednesday met Mariga and assured him support in the forthcoming mini polls, a move Babu Owino sees as betrayal.
In a message that seems to be addressing Raila, Babu Owino says the AU envoy must be careful with his handshake with president Kenyatta, arguing that there has been no any fruits so far.
The youthful MP goes on urging President Kenyatta to be genuine with the handshake, citing that Raila’s camp must walk out of the marriage if it proves to be void.
He argues that one party in the marriage is incompetent, arguing that the opposition cannot be duped twice.
“Baba must be very careful with this thing called *HANDSHAKE* No fruits so far.We can’t be duped twice.President Uhuru must be genuine with this handshake.Baba we must be very careful and if the *marriage*is void coz one party is incompetent for being in a subsisting marriage or voidable coz it’s not consummated then we must be out very fast.We need not lie to each other and in return their intention is to embarrass you.Jubilee must never and will never win kibra.I’m ready to go back to the bush,” reads Babu Owino’s post on facebook.
Raila’s camp feels President Kenyatta would not have supported any other candidate in the Kibra mini polls or the sake of the handshake.
During former Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s memorial service, Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja had said that he would talk to his bosses in Jubilee not to field a candidate in the by-elections, which is now not the case.
Do you think Raila has been betrayed as being argued by Babu Owino?
