Intelligence information has confirmed that ODM is set to use planned construction of Mkaomoto dispensary, a public facility as a bait to entice the Ganda voters. The dispensary being constructed by the County Executive will be unveiled tomorrow. Sources reveal that ODM candidate Reuben Katana is scheduled to lead the function.

Workers put final touches on a plague at the site of Mkaomoto Dispensary, ahead of a launching cum campaign meeting tomorrow.

Interestingly, documents in our possession show that the dispensary was proposed and confirmed by his opponent, Hon. Omar Abdulrahman (Abdhere). Unconfirmed reports had also indicated that Kilifi County Governor, Amason Kingi would grace the occasion.

Other reports alleged that Reuben Katana would do the launching, so as to be portrayed as a performing leader.

Constitution of the dispensary was initiated by Abdhere and budget allocation confirmed by him.

It’s intriguing that ODM’s desperation in Ganda has stretched them to the limit and now the Orange Party has resorted to politics of deception to redeem its dwindling chances of reclaiming the Ganda Ward seat.

It is three weeks to the by-election and the ODM candidate is still trailing Abdhere. ODM politicians have started to give the by-election a wide berth as a defeat is likely to weaken their political influence in Kilifi.
