Obado Warms Up Towards Raila Despite Claiming He is Camping Behind Ruto

Migori Governor Okoth Obado on Friday warmed up to his perceived political enemy ODM leader Raila Odinga .

Obado and Raila sat next to each other on a podium in Nyatike constituency.

The governor who announced he had ditched Raila camp to avoid being swallowed by a hungry crocodile, has not shared a stage with the seasoned politician for close to two years now.

A month later, the county chief hosted Deputy President William Ruto in Rongo and Nyatike where he mocked his party boss Raila for failed presidential bids in last General Elections. The analogy on ‘crocodiles’ was an apparent reference to Raila who had taken a swipe at him over Rongo university student Sharon Otieno’s murder.

The governor’s supporters believed his arrest and subsequent 34-day detention was politically instigated to clip his wings.

As your governor, I want you to allow me walk with Ruto everywhere he goes so that we can realise development. We don’t want anything to do with the crocodiles,” he said amid thunderous applause.
