Joseph Tiampati dumps ODM for Jubilee

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga has suffered a major setback after one of his key allies..

Tiampati, who lost to Jubilee's Samuel Ole Tunai, was received by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House accompanied by other leaders.

“There comes a time when we must stop fighting and support one another for the sake of our people,” he said after joining Jubilee.

Other ODM leaders who defected from the region include Rebecca Tonkei and Alfred Keriolale.

“What is important to me is that now Narok leaders who were political rivals have decided to put politics aside and in a very mature manner join hands and work together for the benefit of the electorate.

"This proves that their main aim was not to get positions to advance their personal interests but to work for the welfare of the people of Narok," Kenyatta said after receiving them.

This will be another setback for Odinga who is aiming to garner more votes from the Maasai community ahead of the fresh presidential election.
