A former close ally of ODM leader Raila odinga wants him to lose the August 8 election...

ODM leader Raila Odinga

Owalo, who managed Odinga’s presidential campaign in 2013, claimed that it was the former prime Minister who rigged him out of the Kibra nominations.

“I’m however eagerly waiting for the results of the August 2017 Presidential elections in which I believe Raila will have no option but to come to terms with the sad reality that Malipo ni Hapa Hapa Duniani,” Mr Owalo wrote.

Owalo, who was vying for the Kibra parliamentary but lost in ODM nominations to incumbent Ken okoth, warned Odinga that the same fate awaits him.

“I have information at my disposal that a decision had already been made by Raila himself a while back to block Owalo in Kibra based on issues which are already in the public domain.

“For the record, I repeat that I have no regret or apologies to make to anybody whatsoever for my past stand on Raila's parochial political interests in Kibra,” he continues.

He stated that he would not contest the decision but he would concentrate on other businesses.

“I have done a lot of soul-searching sine last night and come to the decision that because as a professional I do not want to subject myself to an environment where my fate will be subject to the level of sycophancy I portray to Raila Odinga both now and in the foreseeable future, I will mind my own business and therefore neither contest yesterday’s results nor run for the Kibra Parliamentary seat altogether in August 2017,” Owalo said.
