More Legislators Join ODM

PM also castigated those opposing scientific opinion polls.

ODM Party Leader the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga has today lashed out at those opposing results of opinion polls saying they are ignorant of the facts on the ground.

Speaking at the ODM Party Headquarters in Nairobi when he officially received into the party two legislators and a Narc-Kenya official, Mr. Odinga told off those going round talking about numbers saying "numbers don't vote, but people do".

He urged Kenyans to elect leaders who have the interests of the nation at heart and not just mere power hungry leaders. "I have been a Member of Parliament in Nairobi for the past twenty years and never have I contested in Nyanza which is my rural home" he added.

He said Kenya needed leaders who were development conscience and those who will work towards improving the economy of the country to better the lives of the people of Kenya.

The Prime Minister said he was sure of CORD's landslide victory in the March 4th general election. "We
shall win with a landslide and form the next government" he said.

ODM National Chairman Mr. Henry Kosgey said ODM is a people's party adding that the CORD team will win the elections. "I welcome everyone to join the ODM and CORD, this is the winning team" said Mr. Kosgey.

He urged those who are yet to join the ODM to do so before the nominations day. "One has always to decide where to belong, but in matters politics, one must always be on the right side of history" said Mr. Kosgey.

During the occasion, the Prime Minister received into the ODM, Laisamis MP Mr. Joseph Lekuton who ditched the URP for ODM. Also officially joining ODM was the Kitutu Chache MP and Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs Mr. Richard Onyonka who ditched the PDP party.

Also joining the party was Mr. Francis Kagwima, the former MP for Tharaka who will vie for the Tharaka Nithi County Senator's seat.

Mr. Kepha Sagana who is the Narc-Kenya Secretary General was also received in the party by the Prime Minister.
