Jubilee, CORD do battle in Oloolua

03 May 2015, 10:15 William Korir

Nairobi - The two biggest political coalitions in Kenya, Jubilee Alliance and the CORD alliance will do battle for the vacant Oloolua Ward seat Monday.

Polls for the Oloolua Member of the County Assembly will be conducted Monday, with six contestants cleared for the exercise.

Candidates cleared for the contest include Abdirahman Awadh Ali (ODM), Joshua Orinah Obegi (Independent Candidate), Martin Antony Njogu Kimemia (Jubilee Alliance Party JAP), Paul Opiayo Khayanje  (Independent Candidate), Peter Wambua Nyamai (MDP) and Stephen Oloishorua Lemaiyam (Independent Candidate),according to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC.

The IEBC has engaged more than 600 poll officials to conduct the mini polls which will be held concurrently with parliamentary elections in Kabete.

The battle is expected to be tight and once again, will see the two big boys do battle.

The interesting bit is that the ODM candidate Awadh was a Jubilee boy, but shifted sides in the aftermath of the Jubilee nomination citing unfair handling of the internal poll.

He is thus expected to give JAP's Kimemia a serious run for his money.

Exit polls have given an indicator of just how tight things will be, with most giving a 50-50 outlook to the contest between the two parties.

" We are confident of victory," Kimemia told News24.

" The people have accepted us and are ready to work with the new party. I am certain it will be a JAP win," he stated.

On his part, Awadh says that he hopes for a free and fair poll.

" I ask that our supporters come out to vote and be peaceful come election day," he stated.

Oloolua is a County Assembly Ward in Kajiado North Constituency with a total of 13,403 registered voters in 19 polling stations.
