ODM primaries delayed in Kisumu

17 January 2013, 15:34 Oduor Omondi

ODM nomination exercise in Kisumu County failed to kick off smoothly due to delay in delivery of poll materials.

Despite thronging poling centers by 6 am, voters had to wait till 10 am for the exercise to kick off.

In Kisumu Central constituency, confusion marred the exercise after an aspirant’s name was found missing in the ballot papers.

George Kwanya Okidi’s name was conspicuously absent from the papers despite having paid the requisite KES. 100, 000 nomination fee. Okidi says his efforts to address the anomaly with the ODM electoral board has been fruitless and has threatened to take the party to court.

In Kisumu Town East constituency, voter bribery was rampant as various aspirants dished out monies. A similar scenario was witnessed in Kisumu Town East with aspirants trading accusations over bribery claims.

However in Nyando constituency, the exercise had not kicked off by 1.00 PM with 4 out of the 5 aspirants gunning for the parliamentary seat alleging that outgoing MP Fred Outa had been granted the ODM ticket beforehand. 

Reports also indicate that ODM ballot papers for Nyando constituency have been found in Eldoret East.
