Frustrated Okundi quits ODM

25 December 2014, 11:23 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Philip Okundi has quit the Orange Democratic Movement ODM following the contentious Homa Bay Senatorial nominations. 

Okundi, a former Rangwe MP, has left the Orange party after Moses Kajwang was chosen as the party's nominee via direct nominations.

Okundi, who says he has worked supremely hard for the party and its leader Raila Odinga, says that he feels let down by the whole nominations fiasco and wants out.

He also says he will vie for the seat regardless of whether he has prior affiliations or not.

" I have quit ODM. Sad as it is, I have done so and have to move on," he said.

" The nominations were a fraud and I am highly disappointed by the outcome and will seek redress through other means, he added.

Okundi follows Silas Ouko Jakakimba out of the party after the nomination of Kajwang.

The two and others are set to vie for the seat via independent means after CORD moved to deny other candidates the use of their party seats during the by elections in order to consolidate votes.

Co principal Kalonzo Musyoka said that the move was aimed to consolidate votes within the coalition.
