One Kenya Alliance (OKA) outfit has been dealt a huge blow after the Amani National Congress (ANC) allied Governor decamped to Raila Odinga's Azimio la Umoja ahead of August election.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga today, Monday, 17th January convened a consultative meeting with the county bosses at Enashipai Resort & SPA Hotel in Naivasha.
Raila crafted plans to task the Governors in engaging into vigorous political campaigns that will soften his presidential mattress ahead of next general election.
Among the Governors present includes, Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni), Ali Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Ann Kananu (Mombasa), Wickliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Wickliffe Wangamati (Bungoma), Sospeter Ojamong (Busia), Cyprian Awiti (Homabay), James Nyoro (Kiambu), Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua), Joseph Ole Lenku (Kajiado), Martin Wambora (Embu), Ndiritu Mureithi (Isiolo), James Ongwae (Kisii), Wilberforce Ottichilo (Vihiga), Ali Korane (Garissa), Lee Kinyajui (Nakuru), Alex Tolgos (Elgeyo Marakwet), Cornel Rasanga (Siaya), Dhado Gaddae Godhana ( Tana River), Ahmed Boray Arale (Wajiri), Anyang' Nyong' (Kisumu), Fahim Twaha (Lamu), Granton Samboja (Taita Taveta) and Amos Nyaribo (Nyamira).
The governors unearthed plans to kick off grassroot campaigns in the bid to rally the electorates to endorse the ODM party leader Raila Odinga's presidency.
This comes after the Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi had considered the Nyamira Governor Amos Nyaribo (who was rooting support for Mudavadi's presidency) to deputize him for ANC party National leadership.
Addressing journalists on Sunday, 16th January in Nyamira, Mudavadi asserted that the consultation talks were ongoing to install the governor for ANC Deputy Party leader's position.
"As a way of appreciating what your governor is doing, we are in discussions to have Nyaribo as the ANC deputy party leader, who will help in moving the party agenda" Mudavadi noted.
However, Nyaribo's unexpected political twist to endorse Raila Odinga for presidency has technically exuded the political traces of betrayal to Musalia Mudavadi's presidency ahead of 9th August election.
