Bishop Khamala: I abandoned Mudavadi for Raila after Atwoli and Oparanya convinced me

"I have left for good and am in ODM. Raila himself will come to take me to his party from my home at Shibuli. He is the one we are supporting for presidency and where Mudavadi went, he has dug his own political grave," said Khamala.

Lurambi MP Bishop Titus Khamala has said that Cotu boss Francis Atwoli and Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya convinced him to join ODM.

Khamala who spoke at Golf Hotel today during Azimio la Umoja meeting, he said that Oparanya and Atwoli advised him to support Raila Odinga’s presidency after his boss, Musalia Mudavadi joined Ruto’s camp.

"As the people of Khwisero, we cannot board the wheelbarrow party. We shall support Raila up to the last man standing and not Ruto," Aseka Miradi

Khamala said he prayed and fasted for a week after the two approached him, arguing that he joined ODM after getting an assurance from God that will be re-elected again in the August 9 polls.

“I have left for good and am in ODM. Raila himself will come to take me to his party from my home at Shibuli. He is the one we are supporting for presidency and where Mudavadi went, he has dug his own political grave,” said Khamala. 

Khwisero MP Chris Aseka Miradi said Mudavadi dug his own political grave, saying it was the reason they ditched ANC to ODM.

“We as ANC elected leaders advised Mudavadi that the only person he can work with was Raila so that come 2027, he inherits Luo Nyanza voting block and became President but he didn’t listen to us,” said Aseka.

“As the people of Khwisero, we cannot board the wheelbarrow party. We shall support Raila up to the last man standing and not Ruto,” he added.
