ODM loses ground in the Rift Valley as Bett joins Jubilee

02 March 2015, 14:02 William Korir

Nairobi - Former Roads Minister and ODM chief Franklin Bett has joined the Jubilee coalition, as his former party the Orange Democratic Movement ODM continues to lose ground among the Kalenjin community.

The usually reserved Bett announced over the weekend that he had shifted to the ruling Jubilee Alliance Party JAP after quitting ODM in the aftermath of the 2013 General Elections.

He said that he had moved because he wants to work with the government of the day and the party of the future.

And despite not wanting to make enemies with ODM and especially party leader Raila Odinga who has been a close friend, he appeared to take a jab at the Orange party.

" I think that the way forward is a unified party and one that looks to the future and at the moment it is Jubilee and I want to be a part of it," he said.

" The people are firmly in Jubilee. I really have no option," he added.

The shift in allegiance is not surprising as more and more of the ODM machinery in the region shifts to the government side in the wake of what is perceived to be pressure from locals to leaders to stick with Deputy President William Ruto.

Political analyst Michael Njenga is also of the same opinion.

" Lets be honest, who will vote for ODM right now in the Rift Valley. It is unlikely that the party will make inroads in the near future. I just do not see it happening," he said.

" The DP William Ruto has done a great job to consolidate his support and right now, any ODM support is considered dissent, he added.

Former ODM chairman Henry Kosgey is also said to have shifted to Jubilee, having quit ODM also after the 2013 General Elections and with the fallout of the party with former Kipkelion MP and Executive Director Magerer Lang'at, the Orange party has a job on its hand to gain any support in the region as the 2017 General Elections quickly approach.
