Nairobi - Nairobi governor Evans Kidero has quit the race to become the Orange Democratic Movement ODM Vice Chairman.
Kidero was a front runner for the post and was a clear favourite to take over the position at the polls which are set for the end of February.
He announced Thursday morning that he would be quitting to pave way for younger party officials take over the leadership mantle.
" I will not vie for the position of Vice chairman of ODM in the upcoming polls, he announced.
" I think that there are plenty of young and able party members who can offer something good to the party and I feel it prudent to step aside and let them, he added.
He did however confirm that he will remain an active party member.
" I will always remain loyal to the party and offer my support in whatever way possible to help the party move forward as an entity, he confirmed.
Kidero joins the likes of Anyang Nyong'o, James Orengo, Kenneth Marende and Dalmas Otieno as senior ODM members who have decided against running in the polls.
