Samson Cherargei, a senator from Nandi County, has accused Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung’wah of falling into the trap created by Azimio One Kenya Alliance leader Raila Odinga.
Cherargei claimed Ichung’wah has changed since accepting to lead the Kenya Kwanza Alliance team in the bipartisan discussions with the Azimio team led by Kalonzo Musyoka. He was speaking in Kilgoris, Narok County, where he had accompanied Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua for a fundraiser on Sunday.
The outspoken senator claimed that the talks are primarily intended to favor Raila Odinga, and that Kimani Ichung’wa has fallen into the trap.
“I’ve seen Ichung’wa around here. He’s been ridiculing me, but I keep telling him that the tea and bread they take at Bomas are for Raila’s benefit, but he doesn’t believe me.
“But he has changed since he joined that team and I would like to ask the clergy to pray for him,” he said.
Cherargei and Gachagua have openly resisted the discussions, claiming that they are a ruse used by the opposition alliance to gain access to power.
