Orange Democratic Movement (ODM),led by Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna,has responded to the endorsement by

distancing the party from the remarks made the lawmakers.

“We are focused on electoral justice, which is a subject of the proposed dialogue between H. E Raila (Odinga) and Uhuru (Kenyatta) and further on getting justice for the victims of police brutality following the 2017 elections,” he said as quoted by The Daily Nation.

Sifuna further stated that the party’s official position on the matter was not to discuss 2022 politics.

He clarified that the MPs were voicing their personal opinions,which they were entitled to.

The DP was visiting the Coast region where he won the hearts of his rivals.
