Presidential candidate Jimi Wanjigi has unveiled controversial details about the coup plotted by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga the day before he shook hands on March 9, 2018.
Speaking to KTN News, Wanjigi clarified that Raila summoned him along with Senator Siaya James Orengo for a meeting on March 8, 2018, to discuss the next step following his inauguration as President of the people.
According to Wanjigi, the three leaders voted hard to elect a march to the White House and take power later that month, March 27, 2018.
However, he expressed his regret when the next day the former prime minister abandoned their plans and instead shook hands with his former rival, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I can give you a history lesson, when Raila Odinga went to shake hands with Uhuru Kenyatta in 2018, he did so without involving his generals who have toured the country far and wide.
“The day before he called Orengo and me to ask about the next step after he was sworn in as president of the people and we agreed on the direction. The direction was very strong and that meant we were now going to the White House on March 27. to take office. , ”He said.
Calling the move a betrayal, he said Raila violated the previous dating rules of his generals who were supporting him in difficult and difficult situations.
“When he did that, he seemed to surrender because he did not follow the terms or rules of courtship,” Wanjigi hinted.
The billionaire businessman also said giving a hand was the source of a dispute between him and his party leader, Raila. He noted that the country should move away from the political world ruled by certain families only since independence.
Wanjigi has been adamant in his bid for his ODM presidential ticket, insisting that he is a rival to the former prime minister.
Odinga and Wanjigi fought for an ODM ticket, with the businessman threatening to ask the court to suspend the upcoming National Assembly of Members. He alleges that the party did not do him justice in his bid for the party’s ticket.
