Sura Sio Pesa! Oscar Sudi Responds To His TBT Photo

Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi now says he had more money in 2013 compared to now.

The MP’s 2013 photo has been making rounds on social media, with many Kenyans saying within the close to 10 years he has been a legislator, he has transformed – look-wise.

This, according to social media users, is despite the narrative that the economy has worsened, lately under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta, with his handshake partner Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga.

But in his response, Sudi, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto notes that his wealth has since dropped because at the time the economy was better than now.

The legislator also notes that the TBT photo was taken at a time he was tired from a busy campaign period.

In the photo, Sudi is pictured with Moiben MP Silas Tiren.

I have seen Kenyans commenting on my #TBT image taken back in 2013. Some think that money has transformed my looks but that’s not true. In 2013 I had more money than now since President Mwai Kibaki had grown our economy so well not like at the moment where the economy is on its knees. Sura sio pesa na pia nlikua nmechoka sana juu ya campaigns. You can compare the image on my campaign posters with this one,” Oscar Sudi posted on his Facebook page.

The MP was first elected in 2013 under the then United Republican Party (URP). He won re-election in 2017 on a Jubilee party ticket.

Going into the August 9, 2022 poll, Sudi is seeking a third term, under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

The first time the MP ventured into politics, he was a moneyed aspirant – a financial muscle that has remained unchanged even during the 2017 poll.

Oscar Sudi remains the favorite to win the UDA ticket, and also clinch re-election in the August poll.
