18 August 2016, 13:56
Nairobi - Budalangi MP, Ababu Namwamba has revealed that he is on a mission to capture parts of both Cord and Jubilee coalitions’ territories ahead of the 2017 polls.
The former ODM Secretary General maintained that he is not anyone’s project and that he will prove those peddling such lies wrong.
“We will seek to capture space from both Cord and Jubilee. We will invade their territories with full force.
“The primary purpose of any political party is to seek power and exercise it in the service of the people. We will be entering this field to hunt. We will seek to capture territories that are already in the hands of other actors because there is no vacant space,” Namwamba said.
He dismissed claims that his third force movement is a Western affair saying it is a collection of leaders and Kenyans from all parts of Kenya.

“The third force is not a Western thing, neither is it a party nor an Ababu thing. It is just a movement. The party is coming in a week’s time.
“We have just come from the Coast, next stop is Eldoret and Marakwet in Rift Valley then head to Kiambu.We will be selling our agenda in every part of this country,” the MP said adding that they have at least 10 MPs and grassroot leaders from all regions in Kenya and this will be seen on the day they will unveil the vehicle that they will drive to 2017 elections."
As to whether his yet to be announced party will field a candidate for the presidential race in the coming polls, Ababu said that the decision is yet to be made.
“That decision will be collectively made by the leadership of our political formation. It will not be made by me.”
The MP did not rule out the possibility of working with either Cord or Jubilee ahead of next polls saying anything is possible.
“Politics is a game of the possible where there are no permanent friends or enemies. So as we move forward anything is possible,” he said.
