Raila desperate to retain Kajiado Central seat

28 January 2015, 13:50 William Korir

Nairobi - ODM leader Raila Odinga is desperate to retain the Kajiado Central parliamentary seat and derail the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Party.

The party is seeking to retain the seat which has been left vacant after the departure of Joseph Nkaissery to the cabinet as Interior Secretary.

ODM will nominate its candidate for the election Wednesday.

Raila met aspirants running for nomination Tuesday evening in Nairobi and explained to them that they needed to remain in the party and support it, regardless of the results of the nomination process.

He also urged them to be calm during the nomination process.

" You are custodians of the party. We need you to be with us please. There can only be one winner and I know we all agree with that, so let us stick together," he said.

According to sources, the party will send a high ranking delegation to Kajiado to campaign for whoever will come out tops in the nomination process.

And Raila will lead that delegation.

" Raila knows that the party's reputation is on the line and a win in the by election is more or less a must for the party. They simply cannot afford to lose the election," the source that did not want to be named told News24.

" It will be a good tester of the party's popularity. If they pass the test, it will mean good for the party but to lose it would be a disaster," The source added.

ODM Secretary General Ababu Namwamba says that the party will put its all into trying to win the by election.

" We have prepared accordingly for the by election and we are confident of securing victory," he said.

ODM aspirants for the Kajiado by election are Memusi Kanchori, Paul Kaika, Naomi Kipury, Simon ole Nkeri and Olorasha Paita.
