Deputy President William Samoei Ruto’s sh 3 million and President Uhuru’s sh 2 million to a church in Bondo has drawn the ire of Raila’s brother Oburu Odinga who has warned the DP to never hold Harambee there again.
The Odingas are known for their selfishness but the comments by Oburu drives the point home even much clearer. Those who know him say he doesn’t attend any church – like his brother Raila – and wondered why he is bothered by the Sh5 million a church in a poor village in Bondo got to improve its worship environment.
What is shocking is that the same Oburu vehemently defended the appointment of their sister Wenwa Odinga by President Uhuru to work in the jubilee government. Many Luos are poor because the Odingas always warn them against working with the government or receiving support from the government while they -the Odingas – openly embrace and benefit from the same government.
During the visit, the DP also announced that Sh425 million and Sh380 million has been allocated for renovations and purchase of medical equipment for Siaya County Referral Hospital and Bondo sub-county Hospital respectively.
Oburu was speaking when he hosted several ODM local politicians. It is not however clear whether ODM is an atheist organization. None of its top leaders have said anything about gay marriage allowed by President Obama in the US which several Jubilee leaders have already protested.
