Opposition leader Raila Odinga has told ODM supporters that he would be make a special announcement today at the party’s 10th anniversary in Mombasa County.

The ODM leader has not disclosed what the major announcement could be but he has also said a new slogan for the party would be unveiled at the fete expected to kick off any minute, at the Mama Ngina Drive in the city.

“I am back in Mombasa with a special message,’’ he told his supporters on arrival at the Moi International Airport Friday evening.

“We have a strategy on how to remove Jubilee which has undermined Kenyans and given so many unfulfilled pledges,’’ the Cord leader told his cheering supporters who included Governor Hassan Joho and about 30 MPs from various parts of the country.


He also dismissed the rejuvenated Jubilee Party and merger  “as nothing to write home about”.

Meanwhile, indications are that Cord co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya) will not attend the ODM 10th anniversary celebrations at the Mama Ngina Drive in Mombasa today.

Wiper Party has, however, sent its Cord partner ODM best birthday wishes.

Asked whether the Wiper leader would attend the fete, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior said through an SMS that he (Mr Musyoka) will not be attending.


In its statement signed by Secretary general Hassan Omar and Mombasa Senator, the party wished the Orange party well in their decade anniversary celebrations.

“We in the Wiper fraternity wish the ODM leadership and supporters every success as they strengthen their party. We believe that a strong ODM, a strong Wiper and a strong Ford Kenya mean a strong CORD Coalition,” said Mr Omar in the statement.
