Raila gave me FIVE million for my 2022 campaigns; Jalang’o 

Jalang’o reveals that Azimio leader Raila Odinga contributed five million towards his 2022 political campaigns.

Embattled Lang’ata Member of Parliament Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o has revealed ODM leader Raila Odinga supported him during his campaigns and even contributed to his campaign kitty.

Jalang’o disclosed that the ODM leader offered him 5 million shillings for campaigns in an interview with TV47 on Friday.

He added that clinching the seat would have been hard without the support of Raila. 

“Even my campaigns could have been very hard, and I know the big role Baba played in me being a member of parliament, he supported me by not only endorsing me. But also financially, we are the few people that one day Baba told us to plan something, and he said he would come and grace it to support us in the elections, and he gave me personally Ksh 5 million,” Jalang’o revealed. 

The first-term MP said during the interview that organizing a campaign is not easy and that people need help, which he received from the ODM party leader, Raila Odinga. 

“It was fiery, it is not easy to beat an incumbent MP with the resources and everything,” he stated.

Jalang’o is one of the rebels who was just expelled from the ODM for defying the party position over their dalliance with President William Ruto.

ODM has maintained that the leaders including Jalang’o should resign and seek fresh mandate in a different political party. 

But Jalang’o remarks that he has not done anything wrong and still loves the party. 

“Baba knows very well, that Jalang’o is his son, baba loves me so much, but the truth is, when politics takes over even the love and betrayal, politics is a game of chance, a snowball,” he noted. 

The Lang’ata MP has vowed to stay put despite the expulsion and continue working with Ruto.
