ODM bigwigs to learn fate in election chaos petition
20 March 2014, 21:02
Nairobi - ODM bigwigs James Orengo and Jakoyo Midiwo and others will learn their fate in a case where they are accused of various electoral offences in the 2013 general elections.
The two key ODM players amongst others are accused of breaking several election rules with their behaviour which included bad mouthing a rival politician.
The politician in question is William Oduol of the National Labour Party of Kenya who had complained of verbal abuse by the aforementioned ODM politicians.
Others enjoined in the case are women representative Christine Ombaka and David Ochieng and Oburu Oginga.
The court of appeal will rule on whether they have any grounds to reverse an earlier ruling by the High Court which ruled them guilty of committing the offences.
If the earlier ruling is upheld, the politicians face an array of consequences.
Oduol was involved in a bitter election with rival Cornel Rasanga initially over who would represent ODM in the gubernatorial elections and then thereafter in the election itself after Oduol shifted to the LPK.
