Following the remarks he made about ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has now addressed reports of him wishing death upon the former Prime Minister.
According to Barasa, the ODM Party Leader is geared to wreck havoc in Jubilee Party following the handshake.”If he was a gentleman, by now he would have reigned on Siaya Senator James Orengo,” Barasa added.Barasa and 15 other MPs allied to the DP had called the presser to condemn a recent plan to table an impeachment motion against the DP over corruption claims.
In a video from a presser by a section of MPs allied to DP William Ruto, Barasa appeared to insinuate a death wish on the Opposition leader.”Raila Odinga we respect you, bout you have become a fraudster… If I will reach heaven one day… I will ask God why he did not take Raila. He is a fella that we do not need in this country,” he quipped.
The MP further accused Raila of having caused bloodshed in the country.Speaking to a local publisher, the MP clarified that his remarks were quoted out of context.
“By God taking Raila, I meant taking him through salvation and having him abide the righteous way. But people interpreted it differently.”Once a person is taken by God, they become more gentlemanly and has a more sober approach to life,” the MP stated.
