Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has told Jubilee to stop dreaming about wooing Coast voters.
Joho accompanied Cord leader Raila Odinga on his tour of Budalangi and Funyula constituencies in Busia County on Wednesday.
The Governor said Coast people are firmly in ODM and that no amount of persuasion and bribery by the Jubilee brigade will deter their resolve. “Jubilee arithmetic excludes the people of Coast and Western. We are aware of machinations to buy leaders from these regions but we shall say no to all of them,” he said.
Joho said Jubilee’s plan is for DP William Ruto to rule until 2032 and pass the mantle back to predecessors who will rule until 2042.
“The only time a person from Mulembe will rule is 2070 unless we give Raila in 2017,” he said.
The Governor said the ruling coalition should not think ODM is not learned enough to produce a President.
Joho further said enough is enough and that Raila must be respected as he is the leader of 24 county governments compared to Jubilee’s 22″
“We are comfortable under his leadership.” He said.
