Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi says he is working hard with other members of the Kenya Kwanza coalition to ensure their competitors in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition do not win in the upcoming general election.
Sudi says he cannot afford to allow the Raila Odinga-led coalition to form the next government as he will be in trouble.
Speaking during the Uasin Gishu UDA nominees’ thanksgiving and prayer service in Eldoret town, the vocal MP said he might end up in jail, forever, should Azimio win.
“Sisi tuko careful hatuwezi kushindwa. Wakitushinda, mimi watanifunga permanent. Ndio tunakaa macho kabisa kwa sababu hawa watu wakipita, mimi na Ng’eno, tutafungwa permanent – so lazima tujipange,” said the vocal MP.
Sudi who is serving as a legislator for the second term has had a fair share of troubles with the current administration.
He has on several occasions been arrested over hate speech claims, but none of the cases have succeeded against him.
His last arrest was related to utterances he made against Mama Ngina Kenyatta, wife to Kenya’s first President the late Jomo Kenyatta, and charged with two counts of hate speech and offensive conduct in September 2021.
The court however acquitted him, saying the evidence presented was not sufficient.
But even as he hopes Azimio backed by President Uhuru Kenyatta does not win in the upcoming poll, the MP, who is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto is confident Kenya Kwanza will form the next government.
“We will win very early in the morning. This time around, Raila will have no reason to reject results,” said Sudi.
The legislator however assured locals in not only Uasin Gishu but also across the Rift Valley region that the August 9 poll will be peaceful.
He asked locals living in the region not to worry about their political affiliation, but instead stay put and vote for their preferred candidate.
“Whatever part of Kenya you come from, as long as you are here, vote here. Don’t plan to return to your rural home in fear of violence. Nothing will happen because of an election, we are all Kenyans,” assured the legislator.
