According to sources at State House, President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have placed a call to Raila Odinga reminding him of his warnings in 2018 when he said “I told you to get rid of that troublesome man”
Nairobi City gun runner and former ODM party’s “cash cow”, Jimmy Wanjigi appears determined to rain on ODM’s/Jubilee political parties planned joint AGM after he moved to court to challenge the exercise. This now threatens to rock the boat of a planned “grand alliance” between Raila Odinga’s ODM and President Uhuru Kenyatta’s divided ruling Jubilee party to form Azmio la Umoja.
According to sources at State House, President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have placed a call to Raila Odinga reminding him of what he said in 2018 soon after the famous “handshake” outside Harambee house. “I told you to get rid of that troublesome man” Uhuru is reported to have told Raila on phone in an agitated tone that left little doubt at the frustration in his voice.
Jimmy Wanjigi once described by President Kenyatta as a “traitor” in 2017 for supporting Mr Odinga is now the one on the receiving end!
The president is alive to the crushing court rulings which have twice thrown out the BBI ‘project’ that was meant to amend the 2010 constitution. BBI is currently awaiting a final ruling at the supreme court but is already time-barred no matter its outcome.
Jimmy Wanjigi once described by President Kenyatta as a “traitor” in 2017 for supporting Mr Odinga is now the one on the receiving end! Events have come full circle and the tycoon has been trying to get the ODM nomination certificate to run as the party’s presidential candidate against Mr Odinga who has already been “endorsed” by ODM delegates!
According to papers filed in court, Mr Wanjigi claims ODM has no register of members, no membership cards, and has never organised an AGM contrary to the party constitution and laws at the registrar of parties. Wanjigi wants the courts to thrash Mr Odinga’s nomination as the party candidate and halt a planned Azmio la Umoja merger with Jubilee and other parties.
