Kajiado County Woman MP aspirant, Simayiai Rakita, has finally ditched the Orange Democratic Movement and crossed over to Wiper Party. In a news dispatch to news rooms, Rakita said; “Following the previous week’s events and the open biasness displayed by some of ODM officials I’ve decided to ditch ODM for wiper democratic movement party.”
Rakita said her new party will guarantee her and her team fair process and opportunity to test her strength and popularity. The politician said it is her prayer and wish that her supporters will understand her decision to quit the party that she has stood with for a long time.
A senior ODM official has been exchanging bitter words over his action to publically support another candidate in the race. Rakita will be banking on 45, 000 plus votes from the Kamba community and another 60, 000 plus votes from the Kisii in Kajiado North and Kitengela.
The number of Luos is the fewest in the tribal vote category in Kajiado, while the Luhya vote is increasingly going up. The politician said she is 100 per cent confident she will scoop all the Kamba votes and about 30, 000 Kisii votes. “We shall share the Luhya votes with my opponents in the party nominations, because I have to reach there and secure that ticket. Let ODM deal with the problem they have created,” said Rakita.
The politician said her Maasai votes are intact, that is where her swing votes will come from. Caroline Letura, Esther Somoire and Lucy Ndilai have remained in ODM and their fate is unknown because some local party officials still insist there should be a consensus.
