Nairobi - Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho has endorsed Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba for the secretary general's post in the upcoming ODM elections.
He also said that he would back Josephat Nanok for the position of chairman in the polls.
Speaking in Mombasa, Joho said that he felt the youthfulness and verve that Namwamba holds will help the party move in the right direction.
" We want young leaders that are focused and have the right agenda in mind and I think Ababu falls in that category. I think he will be a good leader for the party, he said.
Namwamba is the front runner for the seat but faces competition from Agnes Zani who is thought to be Prime Minister Raila Odinga's preferred candidate.
