SHOCK as KAJWANG turns against RAILA ODINGA and supports UHURUTO a day after being kicked out of ODMThe Kenyan DAILY POST News 00:28
Wednesday April 23, 2014 - Homa Bay Senator Otieno Kajwang has shocked his colleagues in former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) after he turned against them and supported President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, on their move to register Kenyans afresh in a new national digital database.
This came only a day after he was kicked out of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leadership by supporters of Nairobi Governor, Dr. Evans Kidero, and his move is now seen as a fight back.
Speaking yesterday, Kajwang also supported Uhuru/ Ruto’s move to register children as young as 12 years of age, saying the move will help more Kenyans to be captured in the national database for easy planning, and trashed CORD’s allegations that issuing kids with IDs will lead to doing more evil.
Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and CORD are opposed to the digital registration of Kenyans saying the move is a plot by Uhuru/ Ruto to rig elections in 2017 and steal Raila’s victory again.
