A night club associated with Langata Member of Parliament Phelix Odiwor alias Jalango has become the first casualty of today’s nationwide protests called by opposition leader Raila Odinga.
Protestors in Kisumu raided and vandalised Pitstop Dala which is located in Patel area at the Lakeside City.
Jalang’o, a former radio presenter-cum-comedian, has been alienated from the party since he and seven other ODM legislators met President Ruto at State House, Nairobi last month.
On Friday, the first-time lawmaker alongside five ODM legislators, spoke against the demos. They further asked their constituents to stay away from the protests.
“We want to categorically state that we will not be participating in the planned demonstrations. We equally urge our constituents to do likewise. We encourage those who will join the demonstrations to return to their normal economic and social activities as soon as possible,” Suba South MP Mr Caroli Omondi said during a press conference that was also attended by Jalang’o.
Other ODM legislators who attended the press conference include Gideon Ochanda (Bondo), Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Paul Abuor (Rongo) and Elisha Odhiambo (Gem).
Sauce.co.ke understands that Jalango does not own Pitstop Grills Dala. Apparently, the Pit Stop Dala management has been exploiting information that Jalang’o owned the place as part of marketing strategy.
