Alwada rubbishes claims Wetang’ula being fronted to unseat Kidero

The Orange Democratic Movement has dismissed media reports that Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula is being fronted by the party leadership to  dislodge Nairobi governor Evans Kidero from City Hall  in the forthcoming General Election.

Addressing a press conference earlier today,  Nairobi County ODM chairman George Aladwa termed the reports ‘rumors and unfounded remarks by moles within the party.”

Aladwa said the party is satisfied with Kidero’s leadership and does not require an alternative.

“Nairobi County is satisfied with Dr Evans Kidero and does not require alternative leadership. Those claiming otherwise are moles who have gone to bed with our enemies,” said Aladwa who was flanked by Nairobi ODM leaders majorly drawn from the Luyha community.

The leaders observed that even if Dr Kidero opted out of the race, they have enough people within the county who would replace him and thus they would not seek an outsider.

“Nairobi ODM members are equal to the task of running this city. We do not need assistance from outside,” added Aladwa.

The former Nairobi mayor argued that those spreading the claims were out to create a rift between the governor and the Luyha community at the behest of their own interest.

He hinted of a pact being crafted in City Hall to have Kidero (ODM) and his deputy Jonathan Mueke (Wiper) to retain their seat and in return the Senators seat left for the ‘Mulembe’ house.

“Very soon, Dr Kidero will unveil the pact we are currently drafting with the Luyha Nation,” he revealed.

He urged those decamping from the Raila-led party to do so quietly or rescind their decision.

“Am urging my brothers who wish to leave us to do so quietly or even rescind their decisions,” he urged.

He was referring to Bundalangi MP Ababu Namwamba, Funyulas Paul Otuoma and Sirisia legislator John Walukhe who have resigned from their party positions.
