Kiambu County is slowly turning out to be a political battle field. Most leaders pick the region to flex their political muscles.
But no nonsense Raila Odinga has refused to be scared by political heat associated with Kiambu County which is barring politicians from setting foot in President Uhuru’s back yard.
MPs against Deputy President Willam Ruto’s 2022 bid asked him not to set foot in Kiambu county unless he is accompanied by his boss Uhuru Kenyatta.
The team famed as “Kieleweke” further called for the DP to quit his job if he cannot stop the 2022 presidential election campaigns.
In a statement packed with political undertones, the lawmakers criticized the DP as sneaking in Uhuru’s backyard instead of being bold enough to ask for his boss’ blessings.
The same Sentiments were being orchestrated to block Hon Raila Odinga from setting his foot in Kiambu.
