A meeting of ODM-Scandinavia supporters scheduled for Saturday 14th October will take place at Brygghuset located at Norrtullsgatan 12 (Tube Odenplan) from 16.00. Gerry Changa Midenyo, one of the initiative takers, said that plans for the meeting are complete. He appealed to ODM-Kenya supporters to turn up in large numbers to build the branch of the party.
“Kenyans need a change of government because they have suffered enough under the Kibaki government”, Mr. Midenyo told Kenya Stockholm Blog.
The meeting is expected to discuss and ratify a program document of ODM-Scandinavia and to elect Interim officials who will run the party branch.
The meeting has generated a lot of interest among Kenyans in Stockholm, a city that is increasingly becoming an ODM-Kenya zone.
Mr. Midenyo attacked Narc Kenya politicians who recently came to Stockholm to attend a one week seminar on water but later organized a night meeting at an apartment building in Stockholm. The meeting was mainly attended by a bunch of Narc-Kenya sympathizers in Stockholm.
“Kenyans in Stockholm are very united and it is pathetic that MPs could come all the way from Kenya to try and divide us here on tribal lines using night meetings”, Mr. Midenyo told KSB.
Narc-Kenya sympathizers are increasingly finding themselves isolated after a member of the group delivered what could amount to a “hate speech” at the secret night meeting that was attended by two Narc MPs.
According to a source, the member reportedly said that “we Kikuyus should not apologize to anybody” for meeting as Kikuyus.
Two Kenyans who were at the meeting told KSB that the statement tended to demonize Narc-Kenya as a Kikuyu party while it also tended to isolate non Kikuyus who could be sympathetic to Narc-Kenya.
