Winnie Odinga pokes fun at Khalwale following defection to Jubilee

By Vincent Kejitan | May 18th 2019 | 1 min read

Winnie Odinga has trolled former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale after he ditched Ford Kenya for Jubilee Party.

Through a tweet, Winnie lamented how the party that was birthed by his grandfather, the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, was quickly falling apart.

She also took a dig at Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula whose name has been in the news for the wrong reasons in recent weeks.

“Party leader -> scamDaddy. DPL -> Defected. I'm afraid the lion my grandfather birthed has finally rested,” she tweeted.

Khalwale was officially received into Jubilee by Deputy President William Ruto on Friday at the former’s Malinya home in Ikolomani before hundreds of supporters.

The former senator rubbished a letter from Ford Kenya dated May 13, 2019, summoning him to appear before the party disciplinary committee.

Khalwale, who until his defection was Ford-Kenya's deputy party leader, was summoned to respond to charges of gross misconduct leveled against him.

Earlier, Wetangula had accepted Khalwale’s move and wished him well in his endeavors.

“My 1st deputy PL Dr Bonny Khalwale has made his democratic decision and choice to leave Ford Kenya. It is his constitutional right to associate with persons of his choice.

“Ford Kenya wishes him well in his new political trajectory. FK remains solid!!” said Wetangula.
