Gitonga for ODM Organising Secretary

10 February 2014, 15:34 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Central region Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) delegates have fronted businessman Gitonga Wathanga to contest the position of organizing secretary during the party’s elections scheduled for February 28.

The 532 delegates drawn for 29 constituencies said it was time the region got a seat at the national level proportionate with their support.

Nyeri branch Secretary, Mwangi Kiruhi, Vice Chairman, Kahuho Mathai and Nyeri Central sub-branch chairman, Kabue Ng'ang'a announced Wathanga's candidature at a press conference held Monday morning following consultative meetings held over the weekend.

Wathanga will contest the seat against former Makadara MP, Reuben Ndolo and former Nairobi Mayor, George Aladwa.

Ng'ang'a said Central Kenya had for a long time been sidelined in the party due to the perceived lack of support for the party in the region but pointed out that that was a myth as proven during the last elections.

“We worked hard and gave 500 000 votes for the party during the last general elections and this should not be taken for granted,” Ng'ang'a said.

They said Wathanga was a dedicated and active member of the party who would use his abilities to reinvigorate the party.

The officials down-played the current jostling for the national seats saying democracy was at work.

They said that at the end of the day, the delegates will be the ones to decide who takes what seat and urged candidates to start wooing them.

The delegates said they would support former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga for the position of party leader as they have worked with him for many years.
