ODM Leaders Respond To Kiambaa Winnings, "UDA Winning Kiambaa Is Not A Litmus Test For 2022 Polls"

The celebration which went on throughout many part of the nation for about two days after UDA wins Kiambaa has sparks reactions to ODM Leaders.

UDA wins Kiambaa After Njuguna Wanjiku emerged as the first candidate with 21,773 votes against his opponents Kariri Njama of Jubilee who had 21,263 votes.

The results had a lot of appreciation from UDA allies to Kiambaa residents and kiambu in general, since according to them, winning Kiambaa was a clear indication of winning the next 2022 presidential general election.

However, from ODM Leaders, Migori Senator Ochillo Ayacko and Woman Representative Pamela Odhiambo saying, UDA winning Kiambaa is not a litmus test for Ruto’s 2022 bid.

They said, the results didn't have any effect on Raila Odinga's plan to form alliance with President Uhuru Kenyatta the head of Jubilee towards the next polls.

Kiambu is Uhuru's bedroom, but unfortunately Jubilee lost Kiambaa MP seat to UDA candidate which provides a penetration way for William Ruto to embrace Kiambu residents.

On Saturday, July 17, William Ruto was at Kilifi County during the burial of Bishop George Mwangome Chipa and his brother Adam Goe Chipa, whereby DP Ruto urged leaders to focus on issues that will help improve the living standards of the people rather than focusing on changing the constitution.
