ELDORET, Kenya—Kapseret Member of Parliament (MP) Oscar Sudi has triggered multiple conversations around politics over the weekend.
As always the politician’s controversial utterances have caused uproar and reactions as members of the public and political commentators seek to establish where the truth lies.
Mr. Sudi’s latest target has been ambassador Stephen Tarus who delivered a condolence message to the later Agnesnes Tirop’s family during her burial on Saturday, October 23, 2021.
Tarus read out a message on behalf of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga amid jeers from the crowds that had gathered to mourn the athlete.
This action attracted harsh criticism from Sudi who went ahead to claim that the message may have been crafted by Tarus without any involvement of Odinga.
“The CAS is here reading us statements but the national government has not done anything to these athletes. We have very many conmen here, even this government is just full of conmen. Another one here is purporting to read statements from Raila this is just fraud.
“I can tell you for free that Tarus has written that statement himself. All these people are just frauds. I saw Tarus speaking in Eldoret the other day against Ruto. Your stomach is very small compared to all these people don’t speak against someone of your own bloodline,” Sudi spoke.
Popular blogger Robert Alai posted a clip of Sudi rubbishing Tarus with the caption: “See the rage, Anger and almost lynching of a simple politician Tarus in Iten when he simply read Raila’s speech and promised an alternative voice.”
The remark has earned Mr. Alai a taste of Sudi’s sting where the MP further called the blogger ‘stupid’.
“I wish to inform conman and broker Alai that I am not his caliber, I personally to Baba (Raila) directly, I even advise him on some of the issues and he listens to me. Am not stupid.
“We in UDA shall not succumb to your cheap propaganda and stupidity like those surrounding Baba while spoiling for him, for your information I mobilized crowds for Baba when he came to Eldoret.” Sudi posted.
