A Jubilee MP caused a stir at a funeral in Nandi county when he said Cord leader Raila Odinga’s votes will be stolen to ensure he does not get power even if he wins next year’s polls.
“There is no need to waste time voting for him because he cannot win and if he wins, his votes will be stolen,” Aldai MP Cornelly Serem said. He said he would rather Raila backs someone else. Serem was speaking during the burial of Grace Kisia, mother of former Nairobi town clerk Philip Kisia. ANC Leader Musalia Mudavadi, Funyula MP Paul Otuoma, former Nairobi Mayor George Aladwa, NPSC chairman Johnston Kavuludi and politician Stanley Livondo were present.
Serem said Raila should consider backing Mudavadi. “I want to tell my friend Aladwa and Otuoma that we have tried to support Raila many times, but it is impossible for him to win elections. We are not to blame because even if he wins, the votes will be stolen,” he said.
Serem said in his culture, a bull that does not perform is taken to the market. He said Raila should quit active polls because he has tried his best in vain. Aladwa said: “I said it in Nairobi that if the polls will be rigged next year, then my position is wellknown.” He said Jubilee is “our common enemy”.
