Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has hit back at former United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Secretary General Mukhisa Kituyi over his recent remarks.
Sudi, in a Facebook video posted on Friday, told off Kituyi for claiming that he was negatively influencing ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi since his arrival into the Kenya Kwanza alliance.
According to Kituyi, who spoke during an Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party tour of Western Kenya, there has been a stark similarity in Mudavadi and Sudi’s addresses in recent times.
“Wakati Musalia ameenda kwa timu ya Ruto, Sudi alikuwa anasema bei ya mafuta ni rais wa Kenya anaongeza bei na kila mtu anajua ni kwa sababu ya vita huko Ukraine,”Kituyi said in Vihiga County.
“Sasa Musalia alipoenda huko nilidhani atamweleza Sudi, don’t expose our ignorance hii inatoka na a huko nje; baada ya Musalia kwenda huko, badala ya Sudi kuongea kama Musalia, Musalia ameanza kuongea kama Sudi.”
Sudi in response challenged the former Cabinet minister to visit his constituency and see his development record, lashing out at Kituyi for what he deemed as demeaning him.
“You can belittle me but you cannot match my development legacy. Just come to Kapseret and see what I have done for only 10 years without any position of a CS and then you will show us what you have done for those 30 years you have been in power,” said Sudi.
The outspoken lawmaker similarly chided Kituyi, who served as MP for Kimilili for 10 years and minister for five, claiming he had nothing to show for all his time in the corridors of power.
“Mukhisa, you cannot even compare yourself with Sudi, leave alone Musalia who is on another level. You were an MP for 10 years, I don’t know if you can show the Western people any legacy you left behind as a former Kimilili MP,” he said.
“You were also a minister for those ten years in Parliament before being appointed the Secretary-General UN in Geneva. If you have any popularity in the Luhya community and the country, it is indecency.”
