‘Jicho Pevu’ threatens to quit ODM and run as an independent – VIDEO

Investigative journalist turned politician, Mohammed Ali, has hinted at vying for the Member of Parliament for Nyali Constituency as an independent candidate, if his grievances over irregularities are not resolved by ODM.

Speaking during an interview on NTV on Sunday night, Mr Ali said he will be appealing his defeat to Mr Said Abdalla Saido.

Mr Ali, who is best known for his investigative TV series, Jicho Pevu, also said he has photographic and video evidence to back up his claims over what he said was an exercise that was not free and fair.


“I will wait for tomorrow (Monday), put my complaints on the table and listen to what they are going to tell me. I am confident that if the party views the evidence and facts, then I will win the appeal,” he said.

He added: “I did not come to politics because I wanted to be a politician, I came because I want to fix my country. And if I do not win the appeal, I will use other means or ways to fix my country. I will be on the ballot come August 8 whether on ODM or not.”

Twitter was awash with mixed reactions from netizens over Ali’s defeat in Nyali and his latest declarations.
