National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga's spokesman, Dennis Onyango, has backed United States President Donald Trump's remarks describing African nations as "shithole" countries.
On a post on his Facebook page, Onyango used intrigues surrounding last year's presidential elections in Kenya to justify the US Head of State's claims.
"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Trump was quoted as saying during a meeting with lawmakers at White House, in reference to African countries and Haiti.
His sentiments has met by a backlash from 54 African countries, who in a joint statement issued by their envoys to UN demanded he retracts and apologize over the slur.
However, the opposition leader's spokesman feels that Trump is right. He questions actions by Kenya's electoral commission and even the supreme court.
"On the sh*thole nations business, I stand with Trump. There are sh*thole nations on earth and Trump should get citizens of such nations out of the US," Onyango notes.
"Does anybody know one country where the head of elections body declared he could not guarantee credible elections as Wafula Chebukati did in Kenya then proceeded to hold elections and claimed they were credible, free and fair?"
"The Supreme Court asked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to open its servers. That order stands ignored to date and then we say we are unaware of a sh*thole nation? Does anybody know a country that ignored the orders of its Supreme Court especially on a matter as critical as presidential elections?"
"Which country ever failed to raise a quorum to hear a Supreme Court case as happened in Kenya in 2017? And then we say there is no sh*thole nation on earth? There are sh*thole nations on earth that can't pay their doctors, professors, nurses, teachers and can't elect leaders."
He also questions why African migrants in United States have not returned to their countries in protests of Trump's remarks, if they believe their nations are not "shithole."
"Their citizens run to the US, Europe and even the Middle East. Trump says it and we feign anger but no citizen of those sh*thole nations leaves US to return home in protest because they know there is sh*t at home. Trump is right. There are sh*thole nations on earth," wrote Onyango.
