Raila Party launches regrouping initiative
SEE ALSO :Why Sonko delayed to pick deputyMr Ong’wen said the party was an organised one unlike other parties that only unite when the elections are closer and thereafter disintegrate. “Some parties masquerade as political parties only when elections are around the corner but as ODM we have ideologies and manifestoes that even if we did not clinch the presidency, we have our county governments which we want them to implement,” Ong’wen stated. Addressing Journalists in Narok during the meet-officials-tour, Nominated Senator Agnes Zani said they have met officials in their strongholds such as Bungoma, Nairobi and Narok and were set to tour other counties. She said ODM would continue fighting for social justice and that they were seeking to stay together ahead of the next general election. “As ODM we have not lost hope even after losing the presidency in the last election and even after the “handshake” between our party leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta. We are still a popular party but our focus is now building bridges and strengthening our party,” said Ms Zani.
