Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has resorted to God after his recent woes in the Senate.
On Thursday, May 7 Ole Kina posted on his twitter handle that “Am reading my bible… 1 Samuel 17 please read with me #KOT”, this is after the ODM party de-whipped him from CPAIC.
It all started when the youthful lawmaker decided to vie for the leadership of the Senate’s County Public Accounts and Investment Committee (CPAIC), against his party’s arrangement, and this he was duly elected.
According to ODM, it was the party’s binding agreement that Kisii Senator Sam Ongeri would replace his Homa Bay counterpart Moses Kajwang when his tenure as chairperson of CPAIC ends.
Immediately after his election Minority Leader James Orengo, on May 6 wrote to Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, giving a notice that the opposition party will be removing Ole Kina from the committee, technically removing him as its chair.
TURNING TO GOD
And even as Ole Kina has exuded confidence and defiance against his party, it appears that this is a fight he will not win, and that is why he has turned to his Bible for refuge.
The senator is not the first Kenyan politician to turn to the Holy Book when faced with challenges.
DP William Ruto has never shied away from associating with the Almighty, cleverly quoting Bible verses on numerous occasions to answer his critics.
In December 2019 when the ODPP and EACC were up on his neck with 19 counts of corruption charges, a peculiar down-to-earth Governor Mike Sonko kept on updating his social media timelines with Bible verses.
After being booed at the Bomas of Kenya during last year’s BBI launch, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen took to his twitter handle to quote the Bible.
