Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has promised to flex his financial muscle to ensure Cord leader Raila Odinga is elected President next year.
Speaking during a meeting of ODM delegates at a Nairobi hotel yesterday, Kidero said he will do anything to have Raila in State House, because ‘he will change the lives of Kenyans.’
“I will do anything that to ensure that Raila clinches The Presidency, even if I will use money. Raila will change the lives of Kenyans and make sure that there is equality,” he said.
He also spoke of ODM’s plan to increase Raila’s Nairobi votes from the 700,000 he got in 2013 to at least 1 million.
Kidero also revealed plans to hold a 3-day delegates conference between 15 and 17th October, which will culminate in a mega rally.
“On the 17th we will hold a mega rally that will be three times what was witnessed in Mombasa. We want to celebrate our party’s 10th anniversary in style,” Dr Kidero said.
The Nairobi governor further used the occasion to call for the resignation of Mathare MP Steven Kariuki, who has defected from ODM to Jubilee. He told him to refund the Sh20 million ODM used to campaign for him.
