Jalang’o In Hot Soup After Attending Meeting With Ruto At Statehouse

Langata Member of Parliament Jalang’o has found himself in hot soup with a section of netizens after he attended a meeting with President William Ruto-reportedly without informing Raila Odinga.

Jalang’o was among nine opposition MPs who met President Ruto, sparking uproar from their fellow party members.

Most netizens have termed the act as ‘betrayal’ and it has caused a massive uproar. Jalango’s response has been roped in as the matter has angered Azimio supporters.
In his defence, Jalang’o claimed he would still attend the meeting even if Raila didn’t give him permission; adding that people of Lang’ata are only interested in development rather than political shenanigans.

“I did not have a reason to call him (Raila) or ask because he had already given us a key to work,” Jalang’o said, adding that “the people of Lang’ata don’t care who is president and who is not. What they care about is the delivery of the mandate they gave me.”

Jalang’o continued to claim that the meeting was purely for discussing strategies of developing Langata. Jalang’o is now among the trending topics on twitter. Of course some have supported his move; while others maintain that he’s a traitor. Below are a few of the reactions from twitter;
