ODM Aspirant; A woman eyeing an ODM ticket broke down while sharing an emotional message to the party leader Raila Odinga on live TV.
Fatuma Mohammed, who is seeking to become the next Woman Representative for Migori County, revealed that she spent millions to fund her campaigns and prove to the ODM that she is qualified to fly the party’s flag on August 9.
Fatuma said that she had sold her property for Ksh25 million in order to run for the seat a third time, but that a conspiracy had been developed to keep her out of the Migori county party primaries.
“I have been very fair to the party, they do wrong to me I kneel down and say It’s ok Baba (Raila). I’m spending millions, I sold my house worth Ksh25 million to prove that I want to be a woman rep of Migori county and I have proven, Fatuma stated uncontrollably.
After storming the tallying center at Migori Teachers College, Fatuma went public with the alleged ruse.
According to the ODM aspirant, the ODM party plotted to oust her in favor of Dennitah Ghati, a nominated Member of Parliament.
Raila allegedly asked Ghati not to contest, instead requesting that she organize her Kuria community behind the Azimio-OKA Coalition, promising her a lucrative job if he won.
“2017 I won they took my victory and gave it to current woman rep Pamela Odhiambo. Today I won by landslide.
When Baba came to Kuria, he negotiated with the Kuria community and told them Ghati cannot win, she is not a strong candidate, she is not popular. I have tried to reach to ODM party officials and one of them told me that I cannot stop the process,” Fatuma stated while threatening to vie on an independent ticket.
