The infamous ‘tanga tanga’ has a new member, Former Amani National Congress (ANC) official Eliud Owalo is now the latest to change his political allegiance ahead of the 2022 General Election.
The former Raila Odinga campaign manager who ditched ODM to join Musalia Muavadi’s ANC has now joined Deputy President William Ruto’s camp.
Owalo who contested in the August 2019 Kibra parliamentary by-election where ODM’s Imran Okoth emerged the winner announcing his decision on Monday, September 14 at DP Ruto’s Karen residence saying that the country needs a decisive, all-inclusive leadership that is people-centric.
“I have with effect from today made a deliberate and conscious decision to stand with Kenyans by pursuing my political interests and aspirations within the ambit of the “Hustler” Political Matrix. I’m also going the full-hog with Bill Ruto’ 2022,” said Owalo.
“Kenyans need to collectively and individually embark on forging unity of purpose across the country; adopt issue-based politics devoid of personality cults and vindictiveness; impartially fight corruption; resist impunity; discard retrogressive culture of negative politics built around ethnic enclaves and tribal chiefs; & chart a new political order aimed at bringing about sanity within our national political fabric.”
“Regrettably, a section of the political class appears uninterested in addressing the real challenges afflicting the common citizen; but instead opting for the pre-occupation with amassing wealth and pre-mature agitation of change of the constitution to ensure political preservation and personal aggrandizement,” he said.
