ODM leader Rt Hon Raila Odinga today received Governor Joseph Ole Lenku who joined Orange Democratic Party from Jubilee.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee party has been replaced by Raila Odinga’s ODM in Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku’s district. The Orange Party stated Lenku and ten other members of the County Assembly from Kajiado County had defected in a statement released on Thursday. Raila greeted the governor at the Chungwa House headquarters of the Democratic Party. “Ole Lenku, the governor of Kajiado County, has switched to the ODM from the Jubilee Party. Ten MCAs who were with him in Chungwa House have also defected “According to the party.

Last week, the ODM backed Kajiado Governor Joseph Lenku’s re-election campaign. Nkedianye is attempting to unseat Lenku and reclaim the seat he lost in the 2017 elections to Lenku. The two leaders, on the other hand, are backing Raila Odinga for president. Raila will have a difficulty as a result of the change, since he will need the two to work together to back his bid. Endorsing Lenku at a rally will be disastrous, as Nkedianye may not welcome the gesture.
