Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Baraza has taken Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga head on over what he termed as Raila’s tendency to cause chaos every election year.
Barasa seemed to allude that the current security apparatus was not be able to ‘tame’ Raila and his supporters , and said that if he were to be appointed Interior CS in Ruto’s goverment , he would arrest Raila and take him to Court.
“The only way to stop Raila Odinga from causing chaos after every election is by appointing me as Cabinet Secretary for Interior. I would ensure that he is arrested and charged in a court of law,” he said.
Didmus said that in contrast to six other Presidential candidates, only Raila and his supporters caused trouble over his claims of electoral fraud.
The first time lawmaker said that Former Prime Minister was not above the law, questioning why Raila was not jailed after his mock swearing in.
“Everyone is equal under the law, whether you are a former Prime Minister, Mama Mboga or even Member of Parliarment.” Barasa said.
The fiery MP went on to say that Raila was in the habit of inciting his supporters to violence , especially against those he claimed were from his competitors tribe.
This is not the first time the Member of Parliament has claimed that he will be the CS for Interior and National Co-ordination , and it seems he has his eye set on the powerful post.
It remains to be seen if his dreams are valid.
