Speaking on Spice FM on Thursday, May 26, Nazlin narrated how her close relationship with Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party presidential flag bearer nearly caused a rift between him and Ida Odinga.
Nazlin, who was once a member of the Orange Democratic Movement, recalled how one day Raila warned her not to receive him during a visit to South Korea because the ODM leader was in the company of Mama Ida.
“Do not come to the hall to receive me, don’t come to the hall to receive me because madam (Mama Ida) will be with me,” Nazlin recalled Raila telling on the phone, prompting her to doubt his real intentions.
Nazlin wondered why the ODM leader had not informed his wife that she was taking him to Korea for a peace meeting.
According to Umar, that incident marked the beginning of her fallout with the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition presidential flag bearer.
“That is where my nightmare started, Raila’s interest in me and my objecting to that or fighting him off is what has caused him to prosecute me until today, I have been arrested, detained even my range rovers have been confiscated,” Nazlin alleged.
Nazlin revealed that the ODM leader was behind the move by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to lock her out of the 2017 presidential elections on the ground that she was not a registered voter.
According to her, the fallout with the ODM supremo has seen her being blocked out of political space completely.
Nazlin, who has declared her presidential ambition through an independent ticket, further alleged that there are plans by the deep state to frustrate her candidature ahead of the August polls.
The presidential hopeful recently called on the IEBC to bar the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party presidential flag bearer from participating in the August election for using state machinery for his campaigns.
“Another issue I have raised is that I want Odinga to be barred because he has allowed himself to use the president’s office and Uhuru as his chief campaigner, which is in the public domain,” Umar said.
