“We are not shaken by the move of the few; our party is a Kenyan party with relevant policies and not like other parties that buy politicians with money,” said Joho.
The ODM party leader criticized Jubilee party for using taxpayers' money to campaign, saying that the party will lose the presidential race in 2017.
“We are more than prepared to ensure that Jubilee loses in the August 2017 polls, since they have delivered nothing tangible to Kenyans,” added Joho.
He appealed to Coastal residents to support the ODM in its race to the state house, adding that the country is prepared for a major change in leadership next year.
