RAILA’s earthshaking announcement that left all shocked - Names Presidential candidate

.. ensure they unseat the Jubilee Government.

The former PM had earlier also been endorsed by ODM leaders led by Mombasa Governor, Ali Hassan Joho, who declared him the de facto ODM and CORD Presidential candidate.

Speaking at the ceremony, Joho announced that the party had endorsed its leader Raila Odinga as the 2017 Presidential flag bearer.

However, Raila’s endorsement as the ODM and CORD flag bearer caught many unaware because it had been rumoured that he would endorse Amani National Congress Leader, Musalia Mudavadi, for the Presidency.

  1. This essentially was Johos political PR to sell his name as a mombasa governor for re-election 2017. It had nothing to do with Raila. You cannot fool people all the time. I hope Hassan omar is watching, kwani yeye ndio kiboko change joho all the way!!

  2. Raila has said on several times that he is going to be the ballot come 2017. He said it recently while in Nyanza and he made it clear that he is not the type of person to surrender to anybody. So no earth breaking statement was made in Mombasa

  3. this "major" announcement was nothing but a fart (as one TV guy said a while back).

  4. Madowo was right. Just a big loud fart.

  5. Agreed this earth breaking announcement ni kama "kunyamba ya punda tu". we knew it all along that RAO will declare himself the main contender against Uhuru Kenyatta.It was only a question of time before the deception dawned on Weta and kalonzo.Now that the cat is out of the bag our eyes are focused on the two.

  6. Rao cant give way to anyone bcos his interest is not about kenyans but one day sleeping in statehouse,having presidential motorcade,inspecting a guard of honour,special toilet in the dais,carpet mrefu etc thats what presidecy is to him

  7. That is not news. If it was news at all then I would classify it as his 'kunyamba ya punda'; useless and expected. He treats ODM as his personal property, in fact it is. That is why even come 2032 he will still be contesting for the presidency. Don't forget this is another abortive start just like always.
