Raila Odinga: Stop Embarrassing Yourself…..We Don’t Want You In Homabay

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga held a meeting with elders at his Opoda home to brainstorm on his suitability to run for the vacant Homa Bay senatorial seat. Mr. Odinga was accompanied with ODM 8 MPs who have been advocating for his candidature. The elders gave their blessings amid resistance from their Homa Bay counterparts who held a parallel meeting.

Homa Bay elders found the move by the former Premier was belittling his stature and asked him to instead concentrate on his presidential ambitions in 2017. They want on to state that Homa Bay has competent men and women who can fill the vacuum left by the late Otieno Kajwang’. The elders wondered why Raila was consulting elders from his Bondo backward instead of engaging them to get their views.

Mohammed was quoted by a section of the media as saying:
“Yes we have agreed to have a meeting in Homa Bay County on Wednesday to ventilate on this matter further. The Homa Bay elders have today officially asked the former PM to contest”
The meeting was attended by 200 leaders although MPs opposed to the candidature of Odinga skipped the meeting.
