ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has revealed plans by the ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Deputy President William Ruto to work together to sabotage the ODM candidate in Kibra.
Speaking on Wednesday evening when he appeared at KTN Tv Point Blank show, Sifuna alleged that ANC candidate in Kibra Eliud Owalo was Ruto’s project who was presented to Musalia Mudavadi as one way of ensuring that Kibra vote is divided.
Sifuna remarked that the revelation was made to them by a senior ANC leader who is also Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala during a recent rally in Kibra. Sifuna narrated that both Ruto and Mudavadi were out to teach Raila a lesson in Kibra as promised by Ruto earlier.
“Owalo was brought to Musalia Mudavadi as a project of Ruto. For Mudavadi, it is an opportunity to hit back at Raila just the same way Ruto told us they were out to teach the old man a lesson in Kibra. Owalo was brought as a stick to punish Mzee in Kibra” communicated Sifuna.

The Secretary-General also revealed that Ruto and Musalia were hoping to use Kibra’s victory to gang up against the Building Bridges Initiative, (BBI) report in the coming days.
He stated that Mudavadi had already shown clear intentions to reject the BBI when he alleged that the BBI and handshake were as a result of selfish interests of President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
“It is clear Ruto and Mudavadi are headed in the same direction. It will not surprise me if they work together against BBI. You will remember his comments when he was in the USA saying he did not believe that the initiative was a product of any patriotic intentions by the two Raila and Uhuru,” remarked Sifuna
At the same time, Sifuna revealed plans by the ODM party to dump NASA political outfit once the Kibra Mini polls are over.
He termed their partners’ decision to field their party candidates in the constituency against ODM’s candidate as one way of undermining the spirit of the alliance.
“We have always known ANC and Ford Kenya to be our enemies. They are leeches, parasites and we have carried them on our backs like ticks all this time. NASA is going to be buried in Kibra,” he asserted.
He revealed that ODM was going to build new alliances with those who supported the party’s quest to recapture the seat left vacant following the death of Ken Okoth in July.
