ODM distances itself from Kakamega violence

04 April 2016, 09:57 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Bungoma branch has come out and distanced itself from the chaos that marred Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula’s presidential bid launch in Kakamega over the weekend.

Bungoma County ODM Chairman, Ali Majani said the chaos were organized by people who were out to tarnish the CORD’s image portraying it as a disjointed coalition.

Majani said that the people who initiated the violence were planted by individuals in the current regime to disrupt the launch.

"We know they were sent by people who want to portray the opposition as divided and they will not succeed. Cord is still strong as ever,” he said.

Violence was witnessed at the Presidential launch of Ford Kenya’s party leader, Moses Wetang'ula on Saturday at Muliro Gardens in Kakamega where two people were injured as Ford Kenya supporters clashed with their ODM counterparts.

Majani said the inciters to violence were given the respective party colours to don during the event and then cause chaos.

He said the move was meant to show that the two parties were at loggerheads in the coalition thus causing a rift that would split the opposition.

Majani, who is also the Bungoma County Assembly majority leader said as ODM they were out to support the presidential launch since it showed the opposition as having a democracy within their ranks.

He accused the Jubilee administration of trying to undermine the opposition and said they will not falter in their move to take the leadership of the country in the upcoming general election.

“We know they are scared of us and thus they are trying to use every avenue to ensure that we split and they will not succeed in their mission as we will form the next government,” said Majani.
