• He insisted that Kenyan politics can be rough and one must learn what to do and when, and how to do it to survive.
• President William Ruto’s troops in the Senate on Monday evening saved Oduol in a dramatic vote that turned political.
Kileleshwa Robert Alai, a member of the Nairobi County Assembly, has warned William Oduol, the embattled deputy governor of Siaya, that the Senate saving him from impeachment was not a victory.
Oduol needs to pick up politics quickly, according to the MCA, since he never knows what would come at him next.
He argued that in order to live in Kenyan politics, one must learn what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.
"William Oduol must learn politics fast. Otherwise, he might think he won but he doesn’t know what will hit him next. Kenyan politics is rough. Know how to pull your strings. That was not a win. Watch out Oduol!" Alai said in a tweet.
His comments came after the Senate decided not to impeach Oduol on Monday during a special session.
In a dramatic vote that turned political on Monday night in the Senate, Oduol was spared by President William Ruto's supporters.
The Kenya Kwanza senators took advantage of their size to reject the ad hoc committee's findings that had recommended his removal.
The 11-member panel, presided over by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator William Kisang, found him guilty of flagrant abuse of office, violating the Constitution in grave ways, and engaging in other serious misbehavior.
The 16 senators from Azimio who had voted to uphold the charges were defeated by the twenty-seven Kenya Kwanza parliamentarians who voted against each of the two charges Oduol was facing.
The panel claimed in its unanimously approved findings that the MCAs, who brought the allegations against Oduol, proved that the deputy governor had actually tried to sabotage a procurement process.
According to the committee's findings, Oduol gave the director of supply chain management instructions to modify the tender category for the supply and delivery of certified seeds and fertilizer.
The deputy governor was also found guilty by the committee of deceiving the public by providing inaccurate information.
