ODM will ‘give fair pri­maries’

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

ODM has no pre­ferred can­di­date for the Kisauni par­lia­men­tary and Mom­basa gov­er­nor seats, MP Rashid Bedz­imba said yes­ter­day. Bedz­imba said, “I’m ready to face any per­son at the party pri­maries. We all know even Cord, as a coali­tion, does not have any pre­ferred pres­i­den­tial can­di­date.” He said ODM leader Raila Odinga will bat­tle for the flag bearer po­si­tion with Moses We­tang’ula (Ford Kenya) and Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper). Bedz­imba, a great ally of Mom­basa Gov­er­nor Has­san Joho, said ODM is a demo­cratic party which will give fair and trans­par­ent op­por­tu­ni­ties to ev­ery­one. Bedz­imba is­sued grants to small-scale traders at the Kisauni CDF of­fice. He said next elec­tions will be a walk in the park for him. Bedz­imba is­sued Sh500,000 to some 300 women and youth to start busi­nesses in Kisauni. The money was from his pocket, not the CDF kitty, he said. The MP said the youth need to be em­pow­ered to en­sure they do not en­gage in crime.
