Jalango is facing a rough time ahead in his quest to unseat Nixon Korir. Jalango a famous and popular comedian, Radio host and Businessman has declared his interest to vie for the Langata parliamentary seat. His dream might be pulling further and further away after Raila’s nephew declared his interest in the parliamentary seat.
Jaoko Oburu, Who is Oburu Odinga’s son and Raila’s nephew declared his intention during a previous mass voter drive that was organised by his uncle. Jaoko is currently the county executive committee member for roads and public works in Siaya county.
Jalango who has declared that he will seek mandate using the orange Democratic Movement will have a very hard time in campaigns since his main competitors have been in the political game for longer than him.
Other candidates who are eyeing the seat under the ODM banner include Raila’s Aide Silas Jakakimba. Jakakimba is a prominent city Lawyer and a right hand man for Raila Odinga and has to a point even served as his personal assistance.
With the amount of influence that Raila Odinga has on the ODM party, Felix has the right to be worried since he will be facing it out with not only other party members but close friends of the party Leader.
In the event that he succeeds the nominations he will still have to face it rough with UDA’s popular candidate Nixon Korir who is commonly referred to as General.
