Opposition leader Raila Odinga has told ODM supporters that he will make a special announcement today at the party’s 10th anniversary in Mombasa County.

The ODM leader also said a new slogan for the party would be unveiled at the event at the Mama Ngina Drive grounds in the Mombasa.

“I am back in Mombasa with a special message,’’ he told his supporters on arrival at the Moi International Airport Friday evening.

“We have a strategy on how to remove Jubilee which has undermined Kenyans and given so many unfulfilled pledges,’’ the Cord leader said.

He was accompanied by Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and about 30 MPs from various parts of the country.

Security is tight at the venue of ODM celebrations in Mombasa.

It is not clear whether Mr Odinga’s co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) will not attend the celebrations.

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior said in a text message that Mr Musyoka will not be attending the event.

In its statement signed by Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar, Wiper wished ODM well in their decade anniversary celebrations.

“We believe that a strong ODM, a strong Wiper and a strong Ford Kenya mean a strong Cord coalition,” said Mr Omar in the statement.
