Ole Ntimama told me he is not joining Jubilee, Raila says
11 August 2016, 18:05
Nairobi - William Ole Ntimama's alleged switch from ODM to Jubilee has taken an interesting twist.
ODM leader Raila Odinga says that Ole Ntimama insisted that he is still in ODM when he spoke to the veteran politician.
He adds that the former cabinet minister is his friend and has given no indication of his desire to quit ODM.
" I spoke to him the other day and he said he is in ODM," he said Thursday at his Capitol Hill office.
Raila says that Ole Ntimama, who is an old time ally of the CORD leader, has not moved on from the party and that their friendship transcends political feelings.
" Ole Ntimama is my friend. I have known him many years and we have shared in so many ways. We respect each other," he added.
Ole Ntimama had been quoted as saying Tuesday that he has joined the Jubilee Coalition, which has embarked on a charm offensive of the Maasai region and its people.
That claim though, has been refuted by Raila who hosted a number of Maasai leaders in Nairobi.
" ODM is Maa and Maa is ODM. You will see come the 2017 elections," he insists.
