DALMAS comes back running to RAILA and begs for forgiveness - I’ll never abandon you againForum and discussion, News 02:04
Sunday, November 20, 2016 - After almost a whole year of operating under water and speculation over his political move, Rongo Member of Parliament, Dalmas Otieno, finally came out of the woods and declared his political stand heading to the 2017 General Elections.
In his declaration, Otieno revealed that he will defend his seat on an ODM ticket, saying he is not about to quit politics any time soon.
He dismissed allegations that he was planning to run for the Presidency in 2017 or quit politics altogether. There were also rumors that he may vie for the Migori Senatorial seat if push comes to shove.
At the same time, the Rongo MP pledged his loyalty to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and rubbished allegations that he had dumped him for his own party, which was to partner with Uhuru/ Ruto’s Jubilee.
He blamed his political nemesis for the rumors aimed at creating a wedge between him and the former PM.
“I will never fight Raila Odinga as some of the enemies would want innocent voters to believe in order to antagonize my relationship with the ODM party leader,” said Dalmas.
