ODM picks up Jubilee scraps

09 April 2015, 16:15 William Korir

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has once again gone for a former Jubilee Alliance Party JAP candidate to vie for a by election on the party's ticket.

ODM has picked Ali Abdulrahman, a former JAP member who came second in the ruling party's nominations to vie for the Ololua Ward seat which is vacant following the death of George Nyoike who died in a road accident.

There has however been controversy over the move as the party nullified its earlier nomination results which meant that the previous winner Eli Gor was pushed to the wayside

Gor has since moved to court to challenge the decision to give Abdulrahman direct nomination.

The party pulled a similar ploy with the Kajiado Central by election, where it went for a former JAP candidate Memusi Kanchori and ended up winning.

The party's election chief Judith Pareno told News24 that part of the reason for going for Abdulrahman was because they conducted a survey and found that Abdulrahman was very popular.

" He came up high in the survey and was an obvious choice," she said.

Abdulrahman will compete mainly with JAP candidate Martin Njogu. Others competing are Peter Wambua of Maendeleo Democratic Party, Stephen Lamayaan and Paul Khayanje, the latter two being independent candidates.

The by election will be held May 4, 2015.
