Wednesday September 18, 2019 - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s ODM stamped its authority in Kibra yesterday ahead of the upcoming by-election saying that it will not allow outsiders to clinch a seat they alleged rightfully belonged to ODM.
They vowed never to let anyone clinch the seat, not even Deputy President William Ruto’s candidate, McDonald Mariga.
"We are serious about these campaigns but we want to clarify that Kibra is fully an ODM stronghold.”
“Other parties do not stand a chance in this race, we do not have a single competitor," Junet Mohamed, Suna East MP, stated as ODM launched its official campaign strategy team for Imran Okoth.
He further attacked Deputy President William Ruto, accusing him of propaganda after he chose McDonald Mariga as Jubilee's flagbearer.
"Ruto does not have votes in Kibra, he is testing waters for 2022 and we will not allow him to win.”
“We will conduct a door-to-door campaign," Junet lashed out.
The other leaders castigated ANC and Ford Kenya leaders, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetangula respectively, for rushing to Kibra to field candidates stating that they were being disrespectful to Raila Odinga.
Several other leaders who were present were MPs John Mbadi (Suba), Tim Wanyonyi (Westlands) Babu Owino (Embakasi East).
