Raila has finally made a choice and picked a running mate ahead of today's deadline set by the independent electoral and boundaries commission (IEBC). The ODM leader has picked NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua as his running mate in the August general elections.
That now means that Martha Karua floored other able leaders that include Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, Sabina Chege, Peter Munya, Hassan Joho among others in the hugely competitive race.
Abdulilahi says that Raila Odinga has shown pure contempt by omitting Kalonzo Musyoka from the running mate race and instead appointing Martha Karua. He argues that this is disrespecting and demeaning the stature of Kalonzo.
"Out of sheer spite and utter contempt, Raila appoints Hon Kalonzo his worthy competitor for President in the August general election as a member of his shadow Cabinet. How supercilious can one be? Isn't Mr Musyoka surely the most deferential Kenyan?," he said.
