Meru county Governor and a member of young Turks, Kiraitu Murungi has scattered away lies that were planted by former Raila Odinga aide Miguna Miguna.
Miguna had claimed in his twitter handle that “Fidel Odinga was the biological son of the late Dan Owino. Raila married Ida when she was pregnant with Fidel. That is why Fidel’s house was built outside Raila’s Bondo home. And the reason he was not buried beside his own house or inside Raila’s homestead.”
On his response, Governor Kiraitu said:
“H. E The Rt.Hon. Prime Minister Raila Amolo Odinga has been my friend since 1970. We are age mates and political comrades who both went to Parliament at the same time, in the same party called FORD-K.
The Prime Minister met H.E Madam Ida Odinga, in March 1971 when Ida Odinga was a student of Bachelor of Education at the University of Nairobi, majoring in Geography. They dated for over one year, later on engaged and wedded. The late Fidel Odinga was born in 1973, almost three years after both the Hon.Raila Odinga and Mama Ida had met met, dated, got engaged and married.
It’s a desperate fallacy and a stupid lie, for Miguna Miguna who was only seven(7) years old when The Prime Minister and Mama Ida met, and merely ten (10) years old when the late Fidel Castro Macarius Odhiambo Odinga was born, to LIE to us that at the age of 7 years old, he had known who fathered who, let alone the Odingas. Miguna met the Odinga’s, for the first time in his life, in the year 2007, when the late Fidel Odinga was 34 years old.
Miguna wants us to believe that the late Fidel’s pregnancy existed before 1971 until the time he was born in 1973. Stupid bald headed fool. Finally, I have been to Raila’s Bondo home a thousand times and I know that, the late Fidel had his house inside his father’s home, on the left hand side of the gate, up to date.I am pleading with Ruto to stop using Miguna Miguna in his bid to engage in character assassination of a reputable African family.” Meru county Governor, Kiraitu Murungi.
