riday, March 26, 2021 -Orange Democratic Movement ODM Party leader Raila Odinga allegedly phoned his Deputy Ali Hassan Joho to get details on their recent Statehouse meeting.
Reports have been flying around that Uhuru is slowly working out a formula that will completely cripple Raila Odinga’s political life by 2022.
This report was further fueled after Mr. Kenyatta, on Wednesday March 25, met top governors from the Coastal Region – Ali Hassan Joho of Mombasa, Amason Kingi of Kilifi County and Kwale’s Salim Mvurya.
Though details about this meeting are yet to be clear, sources pointed at a possibility of a new political formation that may see Mr. Odinga not given fair support by Uhuru’s Statehouse for hsi 2022 bid. Odinga who has been a force at the Coastal Region as far as national politics are concerned, was not aware of their meeting, what reportedly had to trigger him to phone Joho for details.
Joho on his part, is said to have told his party leader that what was discussed at Statehouse was purely about Coastal development and nothing else.
“Truly, Jakom was not briefed before the meeting. He had to call Joho later about it. But they explained the agenda saying it was about coastal development,” it was reported by the Star.
Mr. Joho, who is eyeing to become ODM Party flag bearer for 2022, recently announced that he had tendered his qualification papers at the Orange House for scrutiny.
