4 candidates to vie for ODM Homa Bay Senatorial ticket

08 December 2014, 18:52 William Korir

Nairobi - Four candidates will view for an Orange Democratic Movement ODM ticket to represent the party in the Homa Bay by elections.

The by elections will be held in February next year to replace the departed Otieno Kajwang who died of cardiac arrest two weeks ago.

The four who will seek the party ticket are Fred Rabongo, Eng. Philip Okundi, Moses Kajwang and Silas Jakakimba.

Rabongo and Okundi are well known public personalities, while Kajwang is the younger brother to the late Otieno. Jakakimba is a renowned businessman in the region.

The four will contest the party ticket, with the winner more or less the next Homa Bay Senator considering ODM's strength in the region.

This follows the decision by party leader Raila Odinga to not contest for the seat, after lots of pressure from Homa Bay leaders and elders.

It is expected to be a heated process, with most of the candidates expecting a tough and hard fought process.

" It will be a tight process and one that will put the party organs in deep focus. They had better be ready to deal with it, political analyst Michael Njenga says.

There is also expected to be the customary fallout, one which Njenga expects to see from past experiences.

" We know how it goes, especially from an area which is more or less a one party region. There will likely be a fallout, especially as the four candidates all have their own supposed clout, he added.

Raila has meanwhile urged party supporters to ensure the process is run in a good manner and that democracy is upheld.
