Raila offered Governor 2017 ticket but he still left for Jubilee

23 September 2016, 16:15 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says that he offered Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya a place in the party during the 2017 elections but that he refused and joined the Jubilee Party.

The Governor has quit the opposition for the ruling Jubilee Party less than a year to the 2017 elections.

He accused Raila of failing to back him for the seat ahead of the polls and said that he was forced to seek a new party following the hardline stance by the former Prime Minister.

But according to Raila, it was the opposite.

" I offered Mvurya a direct ticket to the 2017 elections but he refused and left for Jubilee while blaming me, so I do not understand his decision," he told News24 Friday.

Mvurya has been castigated by opposition chiefs for his decision but Raila now says that the party has moved on.

" We will now meet at the ballot. I have no hard feelings with him but come the elections we will be on opposite sides so all the best to him," he added.

Mvurya was among 13 ODM members who chose to join the Jubilee Coalition from ODM and have since already moved goalposts as the 2017 polls near.
