Will Raila Odinga survive Miguna’s onslaught?
Posted by African Press International on July 15, 2012
There is a lot of heat in Raila Odinga’s corner where many hard-hitting boxers have surrounded him, as Kenya moves closer to the General Elections 2012/2013. Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s secret deals revealed by his former trusted aide Miguna Miguna in his book released Saturday is damaging for a leader hoping to win the presidency. ODM nominated Member of Parliament Rachel Shebesh interviewed by Jeff Koinange of K24 TV says Miguna’s revelation of Raila’s secrets is behaving like a wife or a husband revealing what happens inside their home. Although she thinks the revelation of corruption in the Prime Minister’s office is damaging, she hopes it does not hurt the PM’s chances to win the elections and become the next president.

Raila, according to many who have never worked with him, looked at him differently until insider Miguna came out with all the things that has been taking place during the 3 years her was working closely with ODM leaders.
Miguna, in his book reveals how ODM ministers close to Raila misuse government funds, some even using government money to purchase clothes to the tune of thousands of shillings. Can you imagine Minister of Lands James Orengo’s suit costing 6000 US dollars using tax-payers money as stated in the book? If this is true, then there is no other word other than say this is madness!
Miguna says he will come back soon with 2 other books and that he has hard-hitting diaries. The hope here is that those being hurt by his revelation take the heat with calmness and not resort to elimination of Miguna Miguna. He has, however said that he does not fear being killed because all he has will come out even if he is away because he has hidden the information far away in safe places.
