RAILA ODINGA mulls plan to take UHURU/ RUTO’s strongholds – See what he did to his ‘bro’

Tuesday September 2, 2014 - Even as President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, intensified efforts to infiltrate former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga’s strongholds with numerous social visits and fundraisers, the CORD leader has mulled a plan to beat them in their own game.
Raila, in collaboration with the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leadership in Meru County, which is a Jubilee zone, have picked a prominent businessman as the new branch chairman in order to woo more members from Uhuru’s TNA to join ODM and CORD.
After consultations with Raila Odinga, a group calling itself ODM Mashinani decided to endorse outspoken businessman, Mutembei Mukarina, as the ODM chairman in the region, replacing Raila Odinga’s ‘brother’ from another mother, Aburi Mpuri, who is also the Tigania East MP.
Mutembei accepted his new role as the ODM chairman in Meru saying he will use his influence and money to ensure Uhuru’s TNA dies in the region.
He vowed to poach Uhuru’s men and women to join the winning team under the leadership of Raila Odinga.
However, Mpuri has vowed to give Mutembei a run for his money, saying he is still the ODM chairman in Meru and nothing and no one can replace him.
The former PM is expected to tour Meru on September 12th to open the new ODM headquarters in the region and to install Mutembei as chairman.

ODM MPs from the Coast unanimously agree to oppose RAILA ODINGA’s referendum.

Tuesday September 2, 2014 – More than 20 Coast MPs on Monday met President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Mombasa, where they agreed to work with the Jubilee Government for the sake of development.
The MPs, most of who are from ODM, were led by Coast Parliamentary Group chairman, Gideon Mung’aro, who said they will support the Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, to uplift the lives of their electorate.
The MPs, who met in a closed door meeting with the President, also agreed to oppose the referendum, a key opposition initiative led by CORD leaders Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula, saying the issues raised can be discussed in Parliament.
They also said they will mobilize their MCAs to oppose the referendum, saying it is wastage of money and resources.
Instead the MPs asked the Head of State to spend the Sh8 billion required for the referendum on development projects at the Coast rather than for the vote.
“I am appealing to President Uhuru Kenyatta to set aside the Sh8 billion which might be spent on the referendum for development projects at the Coast,” Mung’aro said.
