Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero fell out with Raila Odinga’s ODM during the nominations in the build-up to the August 9, elections.
This was after Raila Odinga’s party handed Evans Kidero’s bitter rival Gladys Wanga a direct nomination to contest the Homa Bay gubernatorial election.
This saw Kidero vie for the seat as an independent candidate but lost to Gladys Wanga but the former Nairobi governor still believes that his victory was snatched.
As such, Kidero has announced plans to form his own political outfit to liberate the Nyanza region from ODMs six-piece voting.
In a statement on Friday, September 23, Kidero said the ODM party was being managed as a political business cartel adding that there is a need to have a political outfit that will save the region from Raila’s political slavery.
“The people of Homa Bay and the Luo nation must be saved from emotional slavery, a political business cartel, and blackmail by the six-piece cultists who don’t give a damn about our development,
“We will have our own train (party) which will deliver us from this slavery of over 60 years,” Kidero said in a statement posted on his Facebook.
He said the Luo nation has been in opposition for the last 60 years due to the dominance of the six voting pieces imposed on them by the Odinga family adding that the new outfit will help the region to be part of the national agenda.
“The events of the last few days where MCA’s-will for the election of speakers in the Luo Nyanza counties was subverted is further testimony to the rightfulness and fidelity to saving our county from destruction,
“Homa Bay leadership is consulting and discussing with like-minded Kenyan leaders for us to be part of the national agenda,” Kidero said.
