HASSAN JOHO PRESS STATEMENT – ODM NAIROBI RALLY
Following my “Raila Tosha” declaration in Mombasa on Saturday, September 10th 2016, it is now official that as a party, the Orange Democratic Movement has decided upon our candidate for 2017.
From now henceforth, I and the youthful leaders of our orange party shall take it upon ourselves to comb every corner of this great country to completely dissipate any notion of Jubilee from the minds of long-suffering Kenyans. There is no turning back now; we will not tire, we will not falter – Kenyans must be liberated from the unbearably heavy yoke of Jubilee’s incompetent rule.
The people are hurting every day from the heavy tax burden that only serves the interests of Jubilee’s Eurobond, Karen land, NYS and SGR looters. Ordinary citizens are now paying the price for the KES200 billion shillings cost inflation in the SGR project, the KES200 billion not accounted for in the Eurobond saga and the over KES700 million pillaged from the Devolution Ministry among many other scandals under President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto’s watch.
I wish to make it clear to the Jubilee leadership, from now on, it is you and I. You have failed in the solemn responsibility to serve Kenyans. As Winston Churchill said, “We will match you in the skies, we will match you on land and we will match you in the seas.” We have the goodwill of the people, and we have history on our side. We will put a stop to the endless corrupt Jubilee designs and machinations bent on impoverishing our people.
Towards this, the first in the series of our planned activities is a mini-tour of Nairobi county culminating in a public rally in Huruma, Mathare at Masinde Muliro grounds,this coming Sunday, September 18th from mid-day. We shall seek the support of the people of Nairobi in achieving our goal of ousting Jubilee rule and replacing it with the sober, equitable and servant leadership of the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga.
H. E Hassan Ali Joho,
Deputy Party Leader,
Orange Democratic Movement,
