In Naivasha at CORD’s retreat, Budalangi MP the Hon. Ababu Namwamba, candidate for Secretary General’s post in the forthcoming ODM elections, vehemently accused former Mbita MP songster Otieno Kajwang’ for continuous, malicious & divisive propaganda that he-Ababu is a a jubilee mole.
However Kajwang’ is reported to have maintained that he would not apologize since he had ‘evidence’ linking Ababu to URP leader and deputy president William Ruto payroll. majority of ODM members at the retreat however sided with Hon. Namwamba and strongly condemned the careless remarks by Kajwang’.
“ODM is for all and we do not know of any first class members besides the fact that Kajwang should come out and tell us how his ‘Loyalmeter Gadgets’ were procured and who supplied them to ODM. As a candidate like Zani or Ababu, and one “ostensibly presumed to be ‘close’ to the Party Leader”, Kajwang must concentrate on selling himself but most importantly weigh very very carefully his utterances” an a delegate close to the party leader noted
Namwamba is said to have been incensed as the claims were designed to scuttle his bid in the party polls scheduled for February 28. He singled out Kajwang and Eliud Owalo as those who were behind malicious propaganda in the media about moles and non-loyal members.
â€œWhy is Kajwang questioning peoplesâ€™ loyalty to the party and asking those who are dissatisfied with the management of the party to leave?â€ wondered Namwamba.
In the same meeting Busia Senator Amos Wako warned the party would lose if some members brand others spies and accuse them of not being loyal.
â€œThose who are â€˜measuringâ€™ peoplesâ€™ loyalty to the party leader Raila Odinga must tell this meeting how they arrived at the conclusion of who are moles and disloyal,â€ the former AG added. It is understood that Namwamba spoke out strongly against Kajwang forcing party leader Raila Odimga to intervene. It was at this point that Raila stood up and challenged Kajwang to explain what he meant by people not being loyal and asked him to name the moles. â€œHon. Kajwang your name has been mentioned. What can you say about this?â€ Raila asked the senator.
Kajwang seemed to be surprised that Raila had to intervened in a matter he thought was for the best interest of the so called preferred candidates, since he had no evidence against Namwamba he was literally forced to apologized much to the laughter of those present.
“It was embarrasing to say the least, finally Kajwang’ has been whipped publicly, this is a good move by baba” an MP from Nyanza was heard saying.
