It is a huge blow to Raila Odinga after the former Kakamega Governor Wickliffe Oparanya terminated ties with his ODM party.
According to Oparanya, he will chart a new political path of uniting his luhya community. He noted that his backyard has supported Odinga in five successive election.
Mr. Oparanya was speaking with mourners at Ichinga village, Mumias East sub-county during the funeral of Nominated MCA Phaustine Welimo.
“I am offering myself from now to lead the unity drive of our people. I am done with Raila and even if he bad-mouthes me, God forbid, he knows, he will not be forgiven,” Oparanya said
The ODM deputy party leader (Oparanya) also poked holes in the recent nomination of EALA MPs. He alleged his community was sidelined by the party.
“I was pushing for Kiziro Justus (former MP Shinyalu) to go to EA LA but MPs were grumbling that Kizito had no money. I was wondering that MPs must also be bribed to vote,” he said
