Vote six-piece suit, Raila urges Taita Taveta res­i­dents, but Mwazo says don’t

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Cord leader Raila Odinga has urged Taita Taveta res­i­dents to vote the six-piece suit next year. This in­volves vot­ing for pres­i­dent, gover­nor, se­na­tor, woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive, MP and MCA from the same po­lit­i­cal party.

Ad­dress­ing ral­lies in Taveta, Wun­danyi, Mwatate and Voi, Raila urged res­i­dents to vote in Cord hope­fuls. The ma­jor­ity of lead­ers in the county were elected on the ODM ticket.

But Se­na­tor Dan Mwazo has op­posed the pro­posal, say­ing some lead­ers elected on a party ba­sis have failed the county. He has been travers­ing Taita Taveta seek­ing for­give­ness for “mis­lead­ing res­i­dents into vot­ing the six-piece suit pat­tern”.

Mwazo was con­spic­u­ously ab­sent dur­ing Raila’s ral­lies. He has said he is still in ODM but will not join any­one’s team when cam­paign­ing.
