CORD Senator labels Raila a hypocrite

Nairobi - A CORD Senator says that leader Raila Odinga is a hypocrite.
Hassan Omar, the Mombasa Senator says that the CORD leader is a hypocrite for agreeing to distribute bursaries to needy people in Mombasa while he himself lambasted President Uhuru Kenyatta for using his political position to spread around favours.
He was speaking on the move by Raila to attend the KES 101 million bursary allocation in Mombasa held by Governor Ali Hassan Joho.
Omar told News24 that the move by Raila was wrong on many levels.
" The Coalition leader needs to lead by example. If he says that there should be no political handouts then he does the same thing, it is wrong," he stated.
He accused Raila of trying not to seek change and told him that he is letting himself and the opposition down.
" Raila is letting the people of the Coastal region down. It is high time now that people in this region chart their own political path," he added.
Omar is seeking to run for the position of Governor in Mombasa come the 2017 elections, a move that could cause a huge rift in the opposition.
