ODM politi­cians say haram­bees by Ju­bilee lead­ers will not in­flu­ence poll out­come

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

ODM mem­bers yes­ter­day said haram­bees and hand­outs given by Ju­bilee of­fi­cials will not in­flu­ence the elec­tion out­come. Op­po­si­tion of­fi­cials said Kenyans are in­ter­ested in strength­en­ing in­sti­tu­tions that sup­port growth and de­vo­lu­tion. They spoke at ODM head­quar­ters to cel­e­brate their party’s win in three of the four MCA by-elec­tions in Kisii, Turkana, Ka­ji­ado and Tana River coun­ties. “The rebels are politi­cians, who have lost pop­u­lar­ity at the grass­roots and are court­ing Ju­bilee for per­sonal in­ter­ests,” Kil­ifi woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive Aisha Jumwa said. She said Kenyans want a govern­ment that will stop cor­rup­tion and bad gov­er­nance. Suna East MP Junet Mo­hamed said ODM will not be swayed by “petty politics”. Junet said the end­less trips by Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto to west­ern Kenya have not borne fruits as wananchi are “al­ready fed up with the rul­ing regime”.
