The day ODM supporters ashamed Kajwang’

Homa Bay County Senator Otieno Kajwang’s political woes are far from over. Even before the dust could settle after being removed as ODM Homa Bay County Chairman, he suffered yet another devastating political blow during the Uhuru Park rally when he attempted to incite the crowd against the Nairobi Super Governor Dr. Evans Kidero. 

As he took the podium, Kajwang’ instead of giving his address to Cord supporters used the opportunity to ask the crowd about the whereabouts of Dr. Kidero. The otherwise peaceful crowd did not react to his allegations that Kidero was conspicuously missing from the rally but instead shouted back at him to leave the Governor alone. 

Kajwang’ did not however know that even Cord leader
Raila Odinga had information that Dr. Kidero had sent his deputy, Jonathan Mweke, to represent him because he had another meeting to attend to. Raila had accepted Kidero’s request to attend a meeting with top International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials something Kajwang’ was not aware of.

Some youths could be heard shouting back at him that he should not dare speak ill of Kidero whom the party leader Raila odinga had publicly said is ODM staunch supporter and who is one of the pillers of ODM nationally.
