The leaders maintained that they will not allow “cowards” to bear the Opposition flag in the nest General Election.

“If you were not at Uhuru Park, do not come to us for consideration of any manner. You are simply a coward,” Sifuna stated as quoted by The Standard.

Although a memorandum of understanding signed by the four NASA principals and deposited with the Registrar of Political Parties before the August 2017 elections stipulated that ODM would not field a candidate come 2022, the party’s new secretary general has rejected the agreement.
This declaration by ODM leader is bound to complicate issues for Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho who harbors the ambitions of vying for presidency in 2022 on the same ticket.

Whether Raila in ,his discretion, will step down for the flamboyant Governor,will be known.
