RAILA ODINGA will lose to UHURU/ RUTO in the 2017 poll with a landslide if I fail to become Secretary General – ABABU NAMWAMBA
Thursday February 27, 2014 – Budalangi MP, Ababu Namwamba, has sensationally claimed that former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, needs him most in his bid to vie for Presidency again in the 2017 Presidential election.
Speaking in a Kericho Hotel where he met delegates drawn from Kericho, Bomet, Nakuru and Baringo counties on Wednesday, Namwamba who is vying for the Secretary General position in ODM, claimed that Raila was surrounded by “bad” leaders and Friday’s election will be a chance for them to be weeded out in order for him to stand a real chance of capturing the Presidency that has eluded him for years.
“Raila Odinga is a general with only one bullet left in his gun and in the 2017 election he either hits the bull’s-eye or misses the target, that is why he must be surrounded by a new batch of generals who will ensure that he hits the bull’s-eye in 2017,” Namwamba said.
He also urged Raila Odinga that if he believes in democracy, he had no option but to conduct a free, fair and credible election, that will only allow genuine party delegates to participate in the election.
The ODM election is slated this Friday at Safaricom Stadium, Kasarani.
