Ri­vals block­ing Obado’s new ODM of­fice, he says

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nyanza -

Mig­ori Gov­er­nor Okoth Obado has blamed his ri­vals for creat­ing drama and en­sur­ing Cord leader Raila Odinga did not of­fi­cially open the of­fice he do­nated to ODM dur­ing his Tues­day visit. The gov­er­nor do­nated an of­fice just out­side Mig­ori town. ODM has an of­fice at the county sta­dium. The of­fice do­nated by Obado has been the cen­tre of con­tro­versy and his ri­vals are said to be afraid that he is warm­ing up to the ODM lead­er­ship af­ter he de­fected to the party from PDP three months ago. “Be­fore I joined the party my ri­vals had been at­tack­ing me us­ing the pro­pa­ganda of be­ing a Ju­bilee mole. My re­cent move back to the party and of­fice has ren­dered this use­less that is why they re­sisted [the of­fice],” Obado said. He said the new of­fice can be used for other func­tions. The gov­er­nor said he has been a life mem­ber of ODM. Obado spoke on Thurs­day morn­ing on ver­nac­u­lar sta­tion Mayienga FM on the Gari Mar Okinyi ra­dio show.
