Thursday, March 10, 2022 – Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga Wednesday surprised Wajir County residents when he used the ‘Madoadoa’ remark in one of his rallies.
While the madoadoa phrase is often used to rally voters behind what is termed as a six-piece voting pattern, where parties urge their constituents to elect candidates in all elective posts from their outfits, it also carries a negative connotation of ethnic cleansing.
Raila Odinga, who spoke during the Azimio La Umoja Movement rally, urged residents to vote for ODM candidates and not other candidates who he termed as ‘Madoadoa’
“As my soldiers, you must be armed and have ammunition. By that I mean you need to have a voter’s card and a national identity card,” Raila said.
“We want you to elect Azimio candidates. We don’t want madoadoa (spots),” Raila added.
It is not clear whether the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) will arrest Raila Odinga since the last time Meru Senator, Mithinka Linturi used the term ‘madoadoa’ he was arrested and detained at a Nakuru police station and later charged with incitement.
