“UHURU/RUTO’s” man in Siaya REVEALS how RAILA/ MIDIWO played dirty tricks for HIS FALLPolitics 02:57
Wednesday May 22, 2013 - Siaya Gubernatorial loser, William Oduol, has revealed to a Kisumu Court on how former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo masterminded a propaganda campaign, to tarnish his name before the March 4th election.
Oduol, who has filed a petition challenging the election of Siaya Governor, Cornel Ratsanga, told the court that Midiwo circulated posters that had his photo superimposed with that of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
The move, Mr Oduol said, was intended to mislead voters that he supported the coalition that didn’t enjoy much following in Luo Nyanza.
“Midiwo referred to me as an underdog in many ODM campaigns in Siaya,” Oduol said.
He also mentioned Raila Odinga, as the one who hired a group of youths who prevented him from entering to one tallying centre on March 5.
Judge Angrey Muchelule ruled that Mr Oduol could go ahead with his testimony but it would mean bringing Mr Raila and Midiwo before the court to address the allegations.
