Jubilee cannot afford me, ODM MP says
14 September 2016, 16:15
Nairobi - Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo says that accusations that he is a Jubilee mole are false as the ruling coalition cannot afford his services.
Midiwo has been accused by supporters of Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga of being a Jubilee mole but he says that they are using the utterances to gain political leverage.
He argues that he has blown the whistle on the alleged ongoing misappropriation of funds in Siaya as part of his leadership role.
" They cannot afford me (Jubilee) and they know it," he told News24 sarcastically.
Irate youths attacked Midiwo's convoy in Nyadorera on Sunday after the
MP claimed Rasanga pocketed KES 70 million through the controversial sale
of 6,000 hectares of land in Yala swamp.
That has led to claims by Rasanga that Midiwo is a Jubilee mole.
" Those that want to believe that I am a Jubilee mole are doing so to demean me. My loyalty to Raila (ODM leader) is unwavered ad everyone knows it," he added.
Midiwo has been asked to report the incident to Police, something he is yet to.
" I will report in due course when I have completed my personal investigations on the matter," he stated.
