No political party associated with Raila has ever held peaceful elections. A few cases in mind are the 2014 ODM elections that were violently disrupted by the so called “Men in Black” and the violent campaigns that were witnessed in Homa Bay county senatorial by-election.
Raila cannot democratically and peacefully manage his own party’s internal elections.
During his days in FORD-K, he is remembered for the violent elections in Kasarani Stadium against the late Kijana Wamalwa. During recent internal elections, Oduor Ong’wen, the ODM Executive Director, was beaten up by supporters of a candidate from his party at ODM HQ Orange House in orgy of violence in the opposition outfit that lasted days. Shots were also fired.
This begs a very simple question. If Raila can’t keep his party peaceful, how can he handle an entire nation?
