Kidero10192014Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero clashed with Nyakach MP Aduma Owuor at the weekend over Luo Nyanza politics.

Mr Aduma accused Dr Kidero of waging a political war to succeed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga as the region’s political supremo.

The MP claimed Kidero’s frequent fundraisers in the region and his perceived closeness to the Jubilee administration were aimed at undermining the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader.

“Kidero is fighting to inherit Raila’s wife while he is still alive,” Aduma claimed, adding “this will never be entertained”.

Aduma is among local politicians opposed to Kidero’s fundraisers in the region and the legislator said the governor should remain loyal to ODM, the party that sponsored him to office.

But in a rejoinder, Kidero maintained that the people of Luo Nyanza must be in Government in 2017 and urged the legislators to shun divisive politics.

“Luos must go back to the Government and we must make early preparations to actualise this dream,” he said.

The two were speaking at a funeral in Kajulu.

The governor, who was recently proposed by Kitutu Chache South MP Richard Onyonka as a contestestant for the presidency in 2017, urged politicians from the region to embrace politics of tolerance and development.

Earlier, at a fundraiser in aid of Simenya ACK Church in Ugunja constituency, Siaya County, Kidero maintained that he would continue raising funds in the region.
