Just who is out to frustrate a lawmaker from Western in his efforts to access ODM leader Raila Odinga? The lawmaker was recently subjected to a wild goose chase after he was locked out of the ODM leader's programmeby the host governor. The governor ensured they were one step ahead of the MP, who for lack of information on the itinerary lacked the opportunity to share a podium with the former PM. He was late to the public rally and also for lunch with Raila. He was overheard cursing the governor's team.

Still in Western, it appears a polygamy is proving a hard nut to crack for a two-time Member of Parliament from the region. The man is a step away from being dragged to court for failing to maintain his second wife, who is plotting to sue him. A small bird whispered to Corridors that the woman had sued but was talked out of it after the lawmaker agreed to an out of court settlement. Those in the know say the man has, however, abandoned the children and hasn't been at his second home for the past five months. The MP who is eyeing top seat in 2022 is said to be generous to twilight girls.

And in regards to the maintenance question, the sorry situation of a former lawmaker has ignited fear among incumbents of how life can be for those who lose a chance to return to the august House. The ex-lawmaker has on many occasions been spotted along Parliament corridors at odd hours of the night, with suspicion he could even have spent nights on the visitors waiting benches. A group of lawmakers was overheard empathizing with themselves that the man's predicament could come closer home amid the uncertainty of the 2022 poll outcomes.
