A Blow to Kalonzo after a Former Wiper Governor Joins Raila's Presidential Camp

A season of political defection has began in the country ahead of 2022 polls. Different leaders are defecting to stronger and vibrant parties in preparation of the next general election. ODM and UDA parties are the biggest beneficiaries.

Today former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka suffered a blow after a former Wiper governor joined Raila Odinga presidential camp. The former Garissa governor Nathif Jamal officially announced to support the former prime minister Raila Odinga presidential bid.

The former governor announced his interest in joining Raila Odinga presidential camp after meeting the former prime minister at ODM offices in Chungwa House. He further said that he is ready to rally his people behind Raila Odinga presidential bid.

The former governor was elected on a Wiper party ticket in 2013. He was trounced by the current Jubilee governor Ali Korane in a hotly contested gubernatorial race. He is now keen on recapturing his gubernatorial seat in 2022.

The meeting was attended by several ODM leaders. They include ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna, Dagoretti North legislator Simba Arati, Rangwe MP Lilian Gogo and ODM executive director Mr. Oduor Ongwen.
