Mr Namwamba, who served as ODM secretary-general until he fell out with Mr Odinga, denied ever having been bought or being a mole.

He claimed that the current breed of opposition leaders were the authors of some of the problems in the country and as such, should stop focusing on the past and embrace Kenya’s future.

This sentiment was also shared by President Kenyatta, who said: “Let us look to the future and work with all Kenyans to find solutions to our problems and not keep complaining like some people who have no solutions but are only interested in petty political goals.”

Mr Raphael Tuju, the Jubilee Party secretary-general, said that they must win by more than 70 per cent in the August 8 elections, a glaring margin to avoid issues with the opposition.

“If even now the opposition wants to choose the polling officers they want in some areas, we must win by a big margin so that they can give us a break,” he said.

Prof Julia Ojiambo, the LPK chairperson, also asked the President to include the party’s agenda in the operations of government should they be the victors as she endorsed his re-election.

“We as a party will support your re-election and that of your deputy William Ruto. We want to tell you that the feelings that have been exhibited here fit our thinking, feeling and resolve to work towards ensuring we deliver that winning vote,” she said.

Long time politician Chris Okemo announced his return and candidature for the Nambale parliamentary seat on a LPK ticket.
