Possible Reasons Why Raila Odinga's Supporters Are Angry With Jimi Wanjigi (Opinion)

Jimi Wanjigi has just completed his tour in the larger Nyanza region where he was trying to consolidate votes from the Odmparty stronghold. But a faction of Raila Odinga supporters are not happy with Jimi Wanjigi.

The first reason why Raila Odinga supporters are worried about Jimi Wanjigi's game plan is the way he is trying to change the Odm party slogan. The Odm party slogan has always been "Chungwa Moja Maisha Bora." Jimi Wanjigi in his own wisdom has decided to change the Odm party slogan to "Fagia Wote"

According to Odm party supporters, they interpret 'Fagia Wote' to mean changing everything in the party including sending Raila Odinga home. The fact that Jimi Wanjigi is using people that are not known to be die hard supporters of Raila Odinga, also is causing divisions within the party.

Jimi Wanjigi is using parallel officials while visiting regions. This has brought questions among the Odm party supporters on his allegiance to the party leadership. He has also opened parallel party offices which has attracted criticism from party supporters.

While touring Kiambu, he launched a different party branch and opened a different party branch with officials which has created friction between him and the party leadership.

I don't know what you think but that's my take. Do you think Jimi Wanjigi is working with the blessings of Raila Odinga? Leave your comment below and remember to click the follow button.
