'Your time is up, I will not be silenced!’ Defiant Ugenya MP David Ochieng tells Raila
Ugenya Member of Parliament David Ochieng has slammed Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party leader Raila Odinga, maintaining that he will not be intimidated to withdraw his support for the government.
Speaking at the Sega polytechnic grounds while distributing CDF bursary cheques on Saturday, Ochieng - who is a staunch supporter of President William Ruto - said he will continue to speak his mind openly and would not be muzzled by the Azimio chief or anybody else.
He told off Mr. Odinga saying it is now time for the people of the region to adopt new leadership, adding that the former premier’s time is long gone.
“Nitaongea na kama mbaya, mbaya….kama sawa, sawa. “Everyone lives their life once…it is our age and our time, not his time. His time is long passed,” said the Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party leader.
The legislator reiterated his focus to rebuild his own political career saying he will not play second fiddle to the opposition leader in Nyanza.
He, at the same time, appealed to Nyanza residents to shun the planned Azimio protests and instead shift their focus on their farms during this rainy season.
Despite noting that he is not against the planned protests, the MP underscored that they will not add any value to the people’s lives, further stating that it will be foolhardy for Kenyans who have been praying and waiting for rains to waste time rioting instead of farming.
“I don’t see any problem with protests. But if you are demonstrating because of food, and the food comes from the shamba…now when the rains fall, you leave the shamba and go to protest. Where is your brain?” He posed.
“I want to plead with every person in Nyanza that these rains are short. Let us go to demonstrations after doing our farms.”
