Jubilee MP explains comment on ‘God calling Raila’

Kimilili MP Didmus Baraza says he doesn’t harbour any hard feelings towards ODM leader Raila Odinga despite his recent comment that sparked an uproar.

Mr Barasa had on Tuesday at a media briefing of Jubilee MPs said: ‘”If I go to heaven one day, I will ask God why he did not take away Raila Odinga because this fellow we don’t need in this country. ”

A day later, the youthful legislator released statement that had a new version, claiming that as a Christian, he had called upon Mr Odinga to get saved.

“… when I reach heaven I will ask God why he had not called Raila Odinga.”

“I am a Christian and the meaning of ‘God calling Rt. Hon Odinga’ is actually him accepting Jesus Christ as his personal savior. I simply wished Baba to undergo spiritual salvation,” he explained in an unsigned statement.

The statement was posted on his Facebook page.

Mr Odinga is 73 years old.
