Kenyan Man Wanted By ZRP Insists He was Sent To Chamisa By Odinga
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga’s former aide Silas Jakakimba says he has never been an employee of the party.
In a tweet on Tuesday, he rubbished ODM Executive Director Oduor Ong’wen’s reaction to events that unfolded after Jakakimba was linked to the Zimbabwe poll violence.
Ong’wen said claims that Jakakimba was sent to Zimbabwe by Raila are utterly misplaced.
But Jakakimba hit back and said he has never been an employee at Orange House.
“Whereas I’m a life member of ODM, I’ve never worked at Orange House neither am I an employee of the party,” Jakakimba said.
“I also do not answer to Oduor Ong’wen and, therefore, I will not grace his statement with a response.”
Oduor said Jakakimba travelled to Harare on his own volition and was neither representing ODM nor Raila.
He also said Jakakimba was not part of the ODM secretariat. However, Jakakimba refutes that.
“Oduor must know from today that Silas Jakakimba is formally engaged at the Raila Odinga secretariat, which has elaborate structures including, but not limited to, a highly efficient communication department,” Jakakimba said.
“It’s not his province to comment on issues he has no idea about,” he added.
Reports have been rife that Jakakimba is being sought by Zimbabwean police for interrogation after his visit during the July 30 disputed election. He dismissed the claims, saying his involvement “is not even remotely possible”.
He further said Raila had asked him to convey his goodwill message to the MDC Alliance during its last public rally before the election.
