Former Raila ally prays for his loss in August election
Eliud Owalo, the man who managed Nasa leader Raila Odinga’s presidential campaign in 2013 now says he is eagerly awaiting his (Raila’s) loss in the August general election.
Mr Owalo claimed that Mr Odinga had him rigged out of the Kibra race and wishes the same come August.
“I’m eagerly waiting for the results of the August 2017 Presidential elections in which I believe Raila will have no option but to come to terms with the sad reality that Malipo ni Hapa Hapa Duniani.”
Mr Owalo claimed that Mr Odinga had decided to block him from the race “based on issues which are in the public domain.
“I squarely blame Raila Odinga for mischievously instigating SELECTION of the ODM Parliamentary candidate for Kibra Constituency for the August 2017 elections,” he said.
“For the record, I repeat that I have no regret or apologies to make to anybody whatsoever for my past stand on Raila’s parochial political interests in Kibra.”
The ticket was won by Ken Okoth who garnered 7,712 votes with Mr Owalo coming second with 2,299 votes and Martin Oduor Okoth third with 1,288 votes.
“I have done a lot of soul-searching since last night and come to the decision that because as a professional I do not want to subject myself to an environment where my fate will be subject to the level of sycophancy I portray to Raila Odinga both now and in the foreseeable future, I will mind my own business and therefore neither contest yesterday’s results nor run for the Kibra Parliamentary seat altogether in August 2017,” said Mr Owalo.
