Embakasi East ODM parliamentary candidate Paul Ongili aka Babu Owino has suffered yet another blow after a section of his die hard supporters defected to join the camp of his fierce rival Joshua Obiende of Amani National Congress (ANC) party.
Led by Chris Omondi and Miriam Nyambura Babu’s supporters who were received early today by Obiende at his residence said that the decision to ditch him was arrived at after consulting widely. [wp_ad_camp_2]
She accused Babu for only wanting to use people especially youths of Embakasi East for his own selfish gains same way he used his fellow college mates before dumping them.
The defection comes barely a month after Obiende escaped death narrowly after unknown persons attempted to assassinate him at a campaign rally organised by Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero at Tassia kwa ndege grounds late last month where Babu Owino was the master of ceremony.
On his part Omondi asked the ODM party leader who is also NASA presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga not to impose Babu on the people of Embakasi East saying that any attempts to do so will push them to vote otherwise.
