Suba South MP Honourable John Mbadi recently responded to Jimmy Wanjigi's demands on party's primaries ahead of the much anticipated 2022 general elections.
The businessman had demanded the list of delegates who are voting for party flag bearer to be made available for everyone to see while also seeking the calendar of party activities.
However, Mbadi noted that Jimmy is not a registered ODM aspirant and questioned the businessman turned politician recent moves.
“First of all, he should hold his horses; he is not even an ODM aspirant. He has not paid Sh1million to be an ODM aspirant,” Mbadi told the Star recently.
"The list of delegates is being compiled by the national elections board. The board will announce when the list will be ready, the campaign period for aspirants. I don’t know what he is in a hurry for?
Jimmy Wanjigi has been quoted saying Raila should now allow 'fresh blood' in the party.
