Nyanza leaders faulted for not countering allegations of Odoyo on Raila


Nyanza Youth Council (KYC) have taken issue with Nyanza leaders over their silence when Raila Odinga and his wife Ida are being attacked verbally.

Through its chairman Wilson Aminda, they have challenged the leaders to always come to the defense of Raila when falsely insulted.

Aminda noted that former Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA) chairman Odoyo Owidi has been on the rampage insulting Raila yet no leader has stood up to counter the wild allegations.

He said it is time the leaders speak up and steer the community to the right direction by giving the right information not allowing Odoyo to spew hate and disrespect to leaders.

Aminda castigated Odoyo for his insults directed to Raila after he lost out in the ODM nominations for the Kasipul Constituency seat.

He told Odoyo to respect Raila who he described as a statesman noting that nobody dragged him to contest in the ODM party.

Addressing a press conference in Kisumu on Thursday, Aminda said the Luo community will not receive development from the national government as a result of insults directed at Raila.

He further noted that Raila has done his part in uplifting the status of Nyanza region and Kenya at large and should be respected.

Aminda challenged Odoyo to take cue from ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo who has not insulted Raila during his Nyanza food donation tours.
