The amazing strong 90,000 man procession in Malindi by ODM supporters during the final lap of by-election campaigns for party candidate Will Mtengo on Saturday got a Statehouse operative sweating.
A source close to Statehouse hinted that the match by close to 100,000 persons was a concern to a prominent statehouse operative, he is said to have called Wilson Marwa the Mombasa County commissioner asking if there was a possibility of such match happening again. The Operative is said to have called the Kilifi County security teams and expressed his anger over what he termed a show of might by the opposition.
The panic is justified especially at this time when the president’s approval ratings have hit rock-bottom. Kericho commissioner is under strict orders to make sure no such incidents take place especially on Monday – the voting day in the senate by-election.
