Confusion as ODM, Jubilee claim same venue for Nairobi rally
16 September 2016, 15:03
Nairobi - Drama is unfolding as ODM and Jubilee both claim that they will have a rally Saturday in Mathare at the same venue.
ODM says that it booked Mathare's Huruma Grounds earlier and that the claim by Jubilee that they will use the ground is disruptive.
Governor Evans Kidero says that ODM have been allocated the grounds.
" The grounds were booked by ODM a month ago," he told News24.
But the Jubilee Party says that it too has been given permission to use the grounds and will do so Saturday.
" We booked the grounds and have the permits," Mathare MP Stephen Kariuki who has now joined the Jubilee Party from ODM told News24.
It remains to be seen what compromise will be reached, with one most definitely needed to avoid chaos come Saturday.
" As Nairobi Governor I can assure you that ODM will be at Mathare and no one else," Kidero concluded.
ODM will be holding 10 year celebrations at the grounds while Jubilee are celebrating the move by Kariuki to dump ODM for the ruling party.
