Monday June 15, 2020 – Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has indicated that his ODM party will come to the rescue of impeached Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru in the Senate.
This is even after he engineered the ouster of Waiguru from the Cabinet in 2015.
Speaking yesterday, National Assembly Minority Leader and Raila’s right hand man, Junet Mohammed, termed Waiguru’s impeachment by Kirinyaga MCAs as an act of bullying and targeting women leaders.
“There are some people out there who believe women cannot lead.”
“As ODM, we believe in women ability.”
“We want to give them equal opportunity because we have witnessed women leading well in government and they need to be supported,” stated Junet.
He asserted that ODM legislators will fully support Waiguru because the party believes in strong women in leadership.
“Waiguru did nothing wrong, people just don’t want to be led by women.”
“We want women to have an equal chance at leadership in this country.”
“Don’t come telling me this and that nonsense, we want women to lead this country,” he reiterated.
