Majimaji’s Entrance To ODM A Major Boost, ODM Party Says
Orange Democratic Party is now on the run to recruit fresh blood before 2022 politics to give it a national and inclusive outlook with Julius Owino Majimaji being the latest leader to receive life membership.
Majimaji who is known with his 2002 NARC coalition slogan and song Unbwogable will be vying for Seme Parliamentary seat next year.
Maji has made it in the entertainment industry and has now switched his hawked eyes to August House.
Addressing the media at Chungwa House ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna applauded Majimaji’s entrance saying new blood is needed in the party.
‘‘It is big thing to have Majimaji joining us, he will inspire many and as a party we have also started a recruitment drive which will run for three months starting July and we have waived membership fees because of corona and we are encouraging everyone to join,’’ Sifuna said.
Majimaji on the other hand promised to deliver Seme seat saying his main vision is to change leadership narrative and to serve wananchi.
‘‘Politics is the second part of leadership but before that ODM has leaders. Kenyans need leadership not politics the rest know what they are doing so what I want and for the generation behind is servant leadership,” Majimaji said.
He has also called on leaders to embrace the struggle a normal Kenyan is going through.
“We have heard of dynasty, Hustlers and now let us have another conversation of strugglers ….all those who struggle to make ends meet and we can’t deny that and even Baba has struggled to make Kenya a better nation,” he added.
Meanwhile Westlands member of Parliament Timothy Wanyonyi who witnessed Majimajis’ life membership says they will use all means to ensure the nomination exercise is credible.
“We are reviewing our polices to ensure we have free and fair nominations so that people like Majimaji here can have confidence with our party,” he added.
