Nyong'o steps out of ODM poll race

15 January 2014, 16:32 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - ODM Secretary General Prof Anyang Nyong'o will not defend his seat in the upcoming ODM polls set for February.

The statement by Nyong'o will end weeks of speculation over the second in command at Orange house, with initial reports stating that he was unsure over what to do.

The ODM polls are set for February 28, 2013.

Nyong'o, despite saying he will not run for re-election, however said that he would continue being active in the affairs of the party as it enters a critical stage in it's history.

" I will not offer my candidature for election. I urge those aspiring for this post to be civil in their campaigns, conscious of the party constitution and its policies, and always ready to prioritise strengthening of the party above individual ambition,” Nyong’o said in a statement.

" That said, I will continue to offer my experience and expertise to the party whenever needed and whenever possible, he added.

It means that only party leader Raila Odinga will remain as one of the 'senior' figures in the party in the coming elections with the likes of Kenneth Marende, Henry Kosgey, Fraklin Bett and other key officials not running in the upcoming elections.
