The Popular Homa-Bay senate aspirant and immediate private secretary to Prime Minister Raila Odinga will announce his special purpose vehicle for the February 12th 2015 by-election tomorrow.
Jakakimba was a top contender for the ODM ticket in the December 13 nominations that were disrupted by hired goons allied to eventual party ticket holder Moses Kajwang’. Jakakimba together with other front runners Fred Rabongo and Mzee wa Kazi Philip Okundi have confirmed they will be in the ballot to give the people of Homa-Bay county that which they were denied in ODM.
Here is a short statement TEAM JAKAKIMBA released to newsrooms today evening.
”Tomorrow, Saturday 27th December, This Good Year of The LORD, we @â€ª#â€ŽTeamSilasJAKAKIMBAâ€¬ will formally unveil the Political vehicle on which I, John Silas Jakakimba, will contest the vacant Homa-Bay County Senatorial seat during the forthcoming February 12th, 2015 By-election.
So, Help me God, through The People.”
Elsewhere there seem to be panic in camp Moses Kajwang’ whose supporters are obsessed with candidature of Jakakimba, they seem to sleep, eat, drink and dream Jakakimba. the insults are getting boring with others getting overtly personal.
During the ODM nominations campaigns bloggers associated with Moses Kajwang went overdrive to coin propaganda messages some which later bust into their faces, they alleged that Jakakimba had been bought by Caroli Omondi to a tune of Kshs 10 million to drop out of the race – that never came to be and instead Caroli seem to have dropped off.
The bungled ODM nominations left Jakakimba with no choice but seek sponsorship from another party, he maintains his relationship with Raila Odinga is intact.
Many of Raila Odinga’s staunch supporters in the senate are not even members of ODM- the likes of Omar Hassan (Wiper), Johnstone Muthama (Wiper) and Bonnie Khalwale are a confirmation that Homa-Bay can elect any candidate of any any party as long as he or she has a super working relationship with Raila.
