SUMMARY

Through social media, Khalwale referred to both leaders as liars and asked them to leave the people of the western region alone.

In the post, the former senator explained that the two leaders lied to the people of western Kenya about revival of the sugar industry.

Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale on Friday, January 10, 2020, rubbished both President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

Through social media, Khalwale referred to both leaders as liars and asked them to leave the people of the western region alone.

In the post, the former senator explained that the two leaders lied to the people of western Kenya about revival of the sugar industry.


“President Uhuru and Raila, at the 2018 Kakamega Mashujaa Day u blocked us from speaking & lied to our people about revival of the sugar industry”

“U are coming again to lecture us on the divisive BBI which u ain't able to sell in Mt. Kenya. Our people see no stake it. Go away!” read the tweet.

This came as a response to an announcement made on the BBI delegates meeting to be held for the region.

The counties that were targeted by the announcement include Kakamega, Vihiga, Busia, Bungoma, and Transzoia.

Leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto have over the past been at the forefront in questioning the credibility of the BBI.
