Premium tears for Singer Bahati after ODM secretary General Edwin Sifuna, declared Mathare Parliamentary seat is conserved for the ODM party.
ODM party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna said on Monday, June 27, 2022, that the coalion had settled on the incumbent, Anthony Oluoch, to fly their flag in the polls slated for August 9.
Speaking after a joint meeting with delegates from the ruling Jubilee party,Sifuna urged the Singer to withdraw from the Mathare MP race.
“Our colleagues from Jubilee will be presenting their candidates from eight constituencies and those from ODM will present some from eight constituencies,” said Sifuna.
“Zoning was done perfectly even here in Mathare we have agreed that it’s an ODM zone. We only have one candidate in Mathare and that is Anthony Oluoch, this young man called Bahati is my younger brother and we will talk. I will make sure that we find him another position within the Azimio government.”
The outspoken ODM official says that because Bahati was excluded from the race, he will be offered an alternative position in the Azimio-One Kenya coalition party government upon winning the August 9, General Election.
Latest development comes just days after Azimio’s board decided to have weak candidates resign in favor of their stronger counterparts within the coalition.
