Dr. George Omburo has hit at Ambassador Ogego for invading Railas supporters in the US under a false claim that he is visiting Kenyans, but actually campaigning for Kibaki. The ambassador should hold development and service rallies as expected than visiting areas inhabited by Raila supporters and making political remarks to sway Kenyans towards supporting Kibaki. He should address Kenyans on what to import to Kenya and address dual citizenship. Although the Embassy is there to serve all Kenyans, it should not be used as a political machinery to reach to certain groups or communities. Hon Ogego is not a politician with a constituency that warrants him to hold political rallies, instead his office should invest more time to lobby potential investors and the US business elite and assist in forming business alliances or partnerships with Kenyans.
When Public Eye asked him why he is organizing meetings for and about Raila, Dr. Omburo said Im not a civil servant and I can organize any rally I want. On ODMK matters; Consensus was less costly as compared to delegates and Raila is likely to win because he has travelled all over the country and he is known by all people from every walk of life. When asked why he has shown commitment to Railas functions; We need to elect a government which will help people who are suffering under corruption and insecurity and Raila is the key remedy. Dr. Omburo was responding to a telephone call from Public Eye Group.
