Kimilili Member of parliament hon Didmus Barasa in his much-awaited media briefing earlier today announced his sabbatical leave away from Hustler Nation politics for a period of four months.
The legislator is one of the vocal politicians of the Tangatanga bloc of politicians allied to the Deputy President’s camp drumming support for his 2022 presidential bid while fighting President Kenyatta and his newly found brother in crime PM Raila Odinga.
“I will not be involved in the high stakes politics for the next four months,” said Barasa.
The popularly known as the Hustler Nation cabal is set to lose their key and vital point man in Western Kenya who has always stood with them for as long as we can remember.
Hon Barasa also hinted, during a press briefing on Sunday, that he would be open to working with Musalia Mudavadi come 2022 ‘for the sake of the Luhya tribe unity’.
“I will be consulting with various stakeholders and like-minded leaders in the Luhya nation. I am keen to reconcile factions within the community so we can try and move in one direction. We have always been divided as a community and thus never gets to benefit,” added Barasa.
Mudavadi had earlier announced his bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta and is believed to be the ideal choice of the candidate together with H.E Kalonzo Musyoka by the highly placed government decision-makers.
The legislator’s comments come amid rumors of an imminent split within the Hustler Nation inner circle after their Wheelbarrow party UDA lost two by-elections by a landslide in the last few weeks.
