Raila abandons ODM candidate

Raila shocked locals after he abandoned the ODM candidate in the area.

Raila called for Wiper and ODM to stop fielding rival candidates for the MP and MCA slots in the Ukambani region to avoid dividing NASA votes, and giving an upper hand for Jubilee or Maendeleo Chap Chap to win in the area.

“Kalonzo Musyoka na mimi ni kama chanda na pete, hatutaki magawanyiko ya kura hapa Ukambani (Kalonzo and I are like a ring and a ring finger, we do not want divided votes in Ukambani),” Raila said in Mavoko Stadium.

Raila called on Michael Mutuku to drop his bid and instead support the incumbent, Makau’s bid.

Raila promised Mutuku a state job once NASA sweeps into power if Mutuku shelved his bid.

The NASA flag bearer said that ODM and Wiper will equally share government positions, an announcement that drew a rapturous applause from the crowd.

At  the same time, Raila endorsed Wiper’s Machakos governor candidate Wavinya Ndeti who faces stiff competiomn to wrestle the seat from incumbent Alfred Mutua of Maendeleo Chap Chap.
