Homabay ODM officials hit out at Prof. Nyong'o

25 April 2014, 15:09 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - A section of ODM officials from Homa Bay County have hit out at acting party leader Prof. Anyang' Nyong'o for allegedly meddling in the affairs of the county branch and sub-branches.

The officials, who included Kasipul ODM Secretary Aggrey Omondi, Karachuonyo Organizing Secretary Henry Okano Nyasanga and Homabay town Chairman James Otieno Pete in a joint press statement asked Nyongo to keep off party branches' affairs arguing that they were autonomous and independent.

They consequently issued a 14 day ultimatum for the county branch executive to convene a meeting to iron out emerging issues and fill vacant positions within the party.

The officials said the post of Chairman for Homabay County is currently vacant after Senator Otieno Kajawang opted to vie for a higher post at the national office.

Mbita sub-county ODM secretary Narkiso Tuko and Rangwe ODM chairman Kennedy Marebo told the press conference that the list of delegates for the county had been doctored and that names of strange people including civil servants had been sneaked in.

The officials also said they fully support party leader Raila Odinga for the 2017 elections and that they have full confidence in his stewardship.

However, in a swift rejoinder, Homabay county ODM Deputy Chairperson Monica Mulu accused the officials of seeking to install individuals who had defected to other parties into the party leadership positions.

She said Otieno Kajwang was still the bonafide Homabay county ODM Chairman and anybody seeking to oust him would be acting outside the party constitution.

She said Martin Ogindo and Ongondo Were among others had defected to TIP TIP, the Federal party and Kalausi and were therefore not fit to hold any positions in the party purportedly after defecting back to ODM.

Mulu said the top party organs would soon consult to explore possibilities of disciplining errant party members who were engaging in coups.
