MASS EXODUS! We are going to vote for UHURU/ RUTO in 2017 - Kwale tells RAILAOther Political News, Politics 01:19
Friday, November 4, 2016 - A large number of Kwale County residents have threatened to ditch Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) after the party expelled area Governor, Salim Mvurya, for being an ODM rebel.
Speaking on behalf of residents on Wednesday, Sheikh Kassim Zani said the attempt by ODM to expel Mr Mvurya out the Orange party was a sign of the last kicks of a dying horse.
Kasim said even if the decision will eventually force the County to go for a by-election, they will vote in the Governor regardless of his political affiliation.
“We are all behind Mr Mvurya until he is re-elected in 2017 because of his track record. Those who are against his leadership are people who have failed,” he said.
Similarly, the chairperson of Kwale County Women League, Binti Raso, said they will not to be shaken by ODM’s threats to kick Mr Mvurya out of the party.
“We are ready for a by-election even today because votes belong to us and not the ODM party. We will go where the Governor will go. We know he is in Jubilee and so are we,” Raso said.
She said Kwale residents have finally seen the light and they will support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in 2017.
