OPINION: Edwin Sifuna must stand up on his own

Edwin Sifuna at a Raila Odinga rally in Bungoma. Mr Sifuna should be reminded that his voters are in Nairobi

Edwin Sifuna, the ODM Secretary-General must start cultivating an image of being his own man.

He should stop hiding behind the party in his quest to become the Senator of Nairobi County

It is the concern of the party supporters that the man, who will be rigged in the nomination is not being seen enough, owing to the lacklustre nature of his campaign.

‘If you go online, you will see images and videos of jokers like Karen Nyamu of UDA. On the other hand, nobody even feels Edwin Sifuna is running for senate. The videos, especially, have a lot of impact’, a supporter weighed in.

Apart from a few billboards here and there, Sifuna needs to organise a campaign on his own and stop following Raila Odinga wherever he goes.

MIZANI Africa Polls places Edwin Sifuna as the most favourable to win the Nairobi Senator Contest. What Mizani doesn’t factor is the cash war chest that UDA can pour out for Karen Nyamu. One nude by Ms Nyamu is enough to flip the polls in her favor. As for Maina Kamanda, he is an old and trusted hand in Nairobi politics, he, unlike Sifuna, is well known.

This will ensure that he is a serious candidate and one who can be trusted in a big city. Currently, the image that Sifuna cuts is that one of believing that Twitter likes and mainstream media analysis will take him to The Senate. If you too believe so, just ask David Makali.

Makali was very popular on TV talk shows, he tried to vie and found the going too strange. He’s been out of action for 10 years, confused on where to go / what to do.

Nairobi voters are very strange. One nude by Ms Nyamu is enough to flip the polls in her favor – Writer.

If Edwin Sifuna doesn’t come out of the shadow of Raila and go bare knuckles hunting for votes in the city. It will be tough luck for him.

His lead in the opinion polls is very small.

The ODM party is known for being very sparing with money, this is a disadvantage. If Ruto’s UDA settles for Ms Karen Nyamu, a nude scandal and the financial war chest is enough to sink Sifuna. Ruto can be very generous. In addition, Ms Nyamu can also decide to excite the young Nairobi voters with a nude. Nairobians are strange people.

Maina Kamanda, is an old and trusted hand in Nairobi politics, he, unlike Sifuna, is well known.

Time to hit the road Mr Sifuna.
