Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has managed to divert attention from the much hyped Jubilee Party launch by holding ODM ’10 at 10’ at Tononoka grounds in Mombasa on the same day.
ODM deputy leader Ali Hassan Joho was quoted by a section of the media as saying the opposition will make a major declaration that will tilt the political landscape of Kenya.
It is not clear what Raila has up his sleeves although many presume that he will unveil the opposition flagbearer to battle it out with Uhuru in the forthcoming general elections.
Of the two other Cord principals, Raila is seen as the best to run for presidency given the supports he enjoys in most parts of the country save for Rift Valley and Central Kenya.
Another school of thought is that Raila will endorse Joho as his running mate. The Mombasa Governor has the financial muscle and is said to be the glue that is holding ODM together.
This is a slim possibility given that a large percentage of Kenyans are Christians and may abit jittery to vote for a Muslim.
Suna East MP Junet Mohamed was quoted as saying:
"The two-day event ODM is set to hold in Mombasa will be the mother of all events it has held in the past and will culminate in a grand rally at Tononoka grounds on Saturday"
Cord co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula are expected to attend the highly charged event.
Tanzania singing sensation Diamond will entertain the party supporters.
