The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

For­mer Rarieda MP Raphael Tuju’s ap­point­ment as Ju­bilee Party Sec­re­tariat boss will not af­fect Nyanza votes for Cord leader Raila Odinga, Alego Usonga MP Mu­luan Omondi has said. He said Nyanza vot­ers will not be hood­winked into sup­port­ing the for­mer For­eign Af­fairs min­is­ter’s ini­tia­tives “geared to­wards di­vid­ing Raila’s votes”. “I did not want to com­ment on Ju­bilee af­fairs, but I am sure that Tuju will not de­liver any vote for Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta from Nyanza,” Omondi said yes­ter­day. He added that Tuju is not a re­formist, has never been known to fight for democ­racy and lacks the ap­ti­tude re­quired to con­vince anti-Ju­bilee vot­ers to vote for Uhuru and Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto. “Tuju can­not even mar­shal enough votes in his con­stituency and that puts him in no ca­pac­ity to scut­tle ODM votes in Rarieda and Nyanza,” Omondi said. He spoke in Tula Vil­lage, North Alego.
