Mohammed Ali makes unexpected decision after losing ODM primaries

Major decision.

Mohammed Ali

Speaking during an interview on NTV, Mohammed, popularly known as Jichopevu, claimed that he was rigged by Mombasa Governor Hassan joho who paid supporters to vote for his cousin Said Salim alias Saido.

"I will be on the ballot whether on ODM or not. I will appeal to the party because I have video and picture evidence.

"The entire Joho family were walking around making sure they are paying off voters to vote against me. I have video evidence and picture evidence," Ali stated.

The Journalist has now threatened to leave ODM if no action is taken by the party against the Joho family.

“He did not beat me, I am still the winner. I beat Salim in his home ground and even the police managed to arrest two guys and recovered marked printed ballot papers in favour of Said," he affirmed.

Ali garnered 2,873 votes against Said Salim who got 3,672 to clinch the ODM ticket.

Ali’s allegations could now pit Joho against Raila Odinga who at one time endorsed him for the Nyali parliamentary seat.
