Wilson sossion Quits ODM party and join DP Ruto UDA
Nominated Member of Parliament Wilson Sosion has moved out of ODM party and joined the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party led by DP Ruto.
Sosion, nominated to parliament by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), praised the DP for its bottom-up economy model, saying it would free millions of Kenyans living in poverty.
Speaking on Sunday, October 11, Sosion said that Ruto was best suited to succeed his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, adding that he would be a record-breaker when it comes to delivering development projects. .
“I can count you as one of the few brave and fearless leaders to take that route across the African continent,” Sosion said.
The former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) general secretary, bragged about his good relations with civil servants, noting that he would rally them to support the DP in his quest to become the country’s fifth president. He said that the interest of public servants is at the heart of the Vice President.
Although Sosion has not clarified whether he will run for an alternate seat, reports indicated that he is warming up for the Bomet senatorial seat.
However, Sossion’s move to break away from former prime minister Raila Odinga’s ODM party was not taken lightly, as Bomet senator, Christopher Langat, asked the vice president to approach the former KNUT general secretary with caution.
Langat argued that Sosion was an ODM mole planted by the Odinga party to gather intelligence on the DP’s UDA party’s operations and plans.
On his part, Bomet Senator Christopher Langat denounced Sosion’s move into the party. Langat argued that the former KNUT president was an ODM party mole seeking benefits through the DP.
“He still has an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party as a member and has full allegiance to his party boss Raila Odinga, not Ruto as he wants us to believe, so be careful,” Langat said.
However, Sosion dismissed the claims, saying that the contest for the Bomet senatorial position should be based on developments and not a campaign of propaganda.
“This seat doesn’t belong to anyone, it’s not Christopher or Sosion, our politics should be issue-based because it’s the people who decide, so there’s no reason for anyone to be irritable,” Sosian said.
“Ruto needs numbers, I’ve fought many battles and I know the strategy to win it, it’s numbers.” Sosion added.
