Trade Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) David Osiany has denied claims that he is linked to President-elect William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza.
This is after claims emerged indicating that Osiany was Ruto’s mole in Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance.
Raila Odinga’s former aide Wafula Buke made the claims after the CAS’ wife congratulated Ruto after being declared winner of the August 9 poll.
“The wife to David Osiany that radio girl Syombua Osiany was quick to congratulate Ruto. How do you pray for victory for a side your husband is opposing? Now the dots are adding to the role of David Osiany as an informer in Azimio camp,” Buke said.
In his response to the claims, Osiany blasted Buke over the remarks accusing him of chasing clout using her name.
“I can forgive others for clout-chasing & rumour-mongering on this app, but certainly not you my brother. You know me better than the insinuations you’re helping peddle. Much better
“I have ignored all others, but couldn’t ignore this. Speak from a point of knowledge, not innuendos,” Osiany maintained.
In other news, Ugenya MP David Ochieng and former Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma are the latest leaders to exit Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance.
The two among other leaders ditched Azimio for Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza coalition.
The Nyanza leaders were officially welcomed to the coalition by Ruto at his Karen office on Friday morning, August 26.
Speaking while addressing the press, the president-elect noted that the move was informed by lengthy consultations.
“I welcome my friend Mr Ochieng and the Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party to be part of the Kenya Kwanza coalition. We have been in constant consultation and today I am happy to report that we have signed the agreement
“I must assure you that we shall work together and reach all the corners of the republic. It is by working together with all the leaders that we shall realise our dream as a government,” Ruto said.
