Sunday, May 10, 2020 – Narok County Senator, Ledama Ole Kina, has revealed how he was almost killed in Narok town for supporting Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga’s presidential bid in 2017.
In an interview with a local daily, Ole Kina who has been rejected by ODM as the chairman of the Senate Public Accounts and Investment Committee, said that he is one of the people who stood and fought for Raila and it was inappropriate of him to repay his support with dismissal from the committee leadership.
Ledama’s election was revoked on Thursday, May 7th, after Senate Minority Leader and Siaya Senator James Orengo wrote to the Speaker asking him to eject the Narok Senator from the position.
According to Ole Kina, Raila was behind his woes and that Raila had given instructions to have him ousted from the post.
“I have a lot of respect for Raila Odinga but it’s now time I say that he is the one fighting me because James Orengo told me he was following strict instructions from the party leader that I should not be party to that committee,” he said.
He said it was disappointing not only to him but also to other ODM supporters who stood with the party during the resist demonstrations in 2017.
