Just days after Jubilee unveiled their preparations to launch Jubilee party, ODM made an announcement of flagging-off 47 buses to pick delegates from all over Kenya in their 10th anniversary.
However, this was not the case as only one bus out of the promised 47 was flagged off by Deputy party leader and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho on Thursday, September 8.
The party had promised to hire the 47 branded buses in an attempt to rival the Jubilee party.
It is reported that Joho only flagged off one bus at Fort Jesus in Mombasa on Thursday together with his two other chase cars branded with ODM colors.
He however tried to defend himself claiming that the other buses has already left to pick delegates all over the country and ferry them to Mombasa.
The ODM’s director of elections Junet Mohammed had earlier stated that the 47 branded buses would be flagged off in Mombasa on Thursday which did not happen leaving supporters wondering if it was just a public relations stunt to counter jubilee.
