ODM not losing credibility despite ongoing chaos

16 December 2014, 16:19 William Korir

Nairobi - ODM has not lost credibility following the recent melee in Homa Bay, chairman John Mbadi has said.

The party has been under fire from critics following the chaos in Homa Bay during nominations for the Senatorial elections set for February next year.

Rowdy youth Monday disrupted the nomination process and destroyed voting material.

Mbadi though, laid blame for the chaos on The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC and also insisted that ODM as a party is still on track.

" Credibility? No way. We are fine. Nothing like that," he said of the accusation.

" There was chaos. There is nothing to hide behind and we are not happy with it. That said, we are building a democratic party and we know there will be such issues," he continued.

" We are confident the party is in good hands and such incidences come to show just how much people care for this party and want the best for it," he added.

He went on to blame the IEBC for the chaos.

" The by election is in February. Why do we have such a squeezed schedule for nominations then? Lack of time has forced us into a tight corner and thus the chaos, he said".

" The IEBC must add time if they are to ensure we complete this process," he added.

Mbadi also says that the party is consulting to see the best way forward regarding the nomination process and that a decision will be made by the end of the week.
