Former Budalangi Member of Parliament, Ababu Namwamba on Friday wished his newly found political ally, President Uhuru Kenyatta the best in the ongoing Presidential petition, something that has caused an uproar among Kenyans on Twitter.
In his message, the former ODM Secretary General said that Kenyatta was the real President having been voted for by the majority of Kenyans.
Namwamba has been said to be gunning for a state appointment hence his support for the the President’s re-election bid.
He lost his parliamentary seat after decamping from Raila Odinga’s ODM and forming his Labour Party.
The critics have said that the Lawyer is only sucking up to power now that he is ‘jobless.’
Here are some of the Netizens thoughts on Namwamba’s message to Kenyatta:
he should speak in his individual capacity. the electorates of budalangi rejected him as the kenyans did send @UKenyatta home

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