Friday May 8, 2020 – Narok Senator, Ledama ole Kina, has reached out to his Orange Democratic Movement leader, Raila Odinga, urging him to support him in the fight against his Siaya counterpart, James Orengo.
Speaking yesterday, Ledama revealed that he was prepared to fight ODM’s move to de-whip him from the Senate County Public Accounts and Investments Committee and Senate Business Committee.
The fiery Senator argued that the seat was his right and Raila ought to come to his aid as he has been his staunch supporter and defender and stood with the former Prime Minister when his presidential election was allegedly stolen.
“I call upon him (Odinga) to be able to call for a discussion.”
“I haven’t had time to sit down with the party leader.”
“I believe he is a democrat and for him to be able to save the party and the future of the nation, we have BBI coming up and a lot of things such as the handshake, we need to be able to embrace each other.”
“I urge him to stand by me as my election is being stolen too.”
“Let him support me for the future of this generation,” Ledama pleaded.
Ledama vowed not step down nor give up on the fight easily because he had rightfully won the seat, despite ODM members fronting Kisii Senator Sam Ongeri as the favourite.
Ledama was fronted by Jubilee members led by Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga.
“For the future of this nation and democracy, this is a fight I am prepared to fight.”
“I’d rather be accused of having failed but I will never let myself be accused of never having tried.”
“The future generation depends on my leadership now to be able to defend democracy and this is what I am prepared to do,” the ODM politician stated.
