Here’s Namwamba’s message to Uhuru that has angered KOT
Former Budalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba is facing criticism from Kenyans on Twitter, for wishing President Uhuru Kenyatta “the best of luck” in the ongoing Presidential election petition.
Once a fierce critic of the Jubilee administration, Namwamba has since made a complete about turn and warmed up to the government.
His fallout with his former party boss Raila Odinga is what, according to political analysts, cost him his parliamentary seat in the August 8 general elections.
However, the former MP is still determined to prove his allegiance to the government amid talks that he is angling for a government appointment.
Namwamba is certainly going to be one of the interested spectators come Friday when the Supreme Court rules on Mr Odinga’s petition challenging President Kenyatta’s victory.
That is what perhaps informed his decision to wish President Kenyatta victory in the case.
In solidarity with Your Excellency. Millions of us who voted u are real humans. U are a real President of all Kenyans. Victory be ur portion

His best wishes message to the president, however, didn’t go down well with some Kenyans on Twitter.

Eh! Ababu Namwamba you’re busy looking for a job. Remember how you recorded your conversation with Raila. No one can trust you again.
