Raila assures Governor Joho of his support against perceived intimidation by government

By Standard Reporter | March 14th 2016

Nairobi, Kenya: CORD leader Raila Odinga Monday morning held a lengthy meeting with the ODM Deputy Party Leader and Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho.

During the meeting at Mr Odinga’s Capitol Hill Square office, Mr Joho briefed Mr Odinga on the Malindi by-elections and the subsequent fallout between the governor, other leaders from the Coast and the Jubilee government.

Mr Odinga encouraged the governor to remain firm in his beliefs and commitment to the party and fight for what is right for his people.

He assured the governor and other Coast leaders of his personal support against intimidation by the National Government. He also thanked Malindi voters for standing with ODM despite intimidation by the National government and massive bribery.

Malindi voters went to the polls while Mr Odinga was away in Israel. Before leaving for Israel, he led a three-day campaign for the party’s candidate in the by-election Mr Willy Mtengo who scored 15,582 votes to easily trounce Jubilee Alliance Party’s Philip Charo, who got 9,243 votes.
