Raila Breaks Silence After ODM's Hardly Fought Victory in Bonchari By-election

ODM party leader Raila Odinga has gone wild at his handshake brother his Jubilee government over the recent ugly moves observed in Juja and Bonchari Constituencies during the by-election process.

Through his official online page he has seriously condemned the reported cases of police intimidations, frustrations and use of government machineries in an alleged attempt to make the Jubilee candidate win the two vacant seats.

An act which he has referred to as the abuse of police powers and arrogant display of impunity by some government officials under the Jubilee government.

"What we have witnessed in the by-elections in Bonchari and Juja is abuse of police powers and arrogant display of impunity by a few overzealous and bellicose government functionaries,"~Raila Odinga.

Besides that, he has congratulated his newly elected ODM party candidate in Bonchari by-election Pavel Oimeke for the victory over the UDA and Jubilee candidates.

This win now means alot for Raila and the ODM party as a whole as Oimeke now adds to the number of foot soldiers Raila now has in the National Assembly.

According to him just as he has stated in his online statement, the win also gives a clear indication that the ODM party still has huge support and much on the ground.
