Orange Democratic Movement Treasurer Timothy Bosire has opened up about his predicaments in the course of 2017 polls.
Bosire, 57, lost his Kitutu Masaba seat in 2017 polls to Shadrack Mose, a campaign which saw Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i camping in his constituency to campaign for Jubilee candidate.
In an phone conversation with this writer on Wednesday, a jovial Bosire said most of the things his team was fighting for have been handled by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
On his detention in 2016, Bosire said he doesn't regret fighting the Jubilee administration. He also said he doesn't have any grudge against Uhuru.
"The state ordered for our detention and I was incarcerated at Pangani. I don't have any grudge with the president. He has since started implementing what we wanted," he said.
"Truthfulness and integrity have always guided us. I have since moved on. I am happy that things are going well in the country," he said, adding that he supports Uhuru fully.
Bosire was detained in 2016 over alleged incitement along with Aisha Jumwa, Frolence Mutua, Junet Mohamed among others. They were acquitted in October this year.
On the Building Bridges Initiative, Bosire said the ODM party supports pumping more money to grassroots, fight against corruption among other recommendations.
However, he said, the party will take a collective position after the technical Committee takes over and makes more recommendations.
In Nyamira, Bosire took a swipe at a section of leaders, arguing that they have absconded their duties in oversight the county government.
Bosire is expected to be among front runners in the race to succeed Governor John Nyagarama, who will be retiring in 2022.
