ODM wants Homa Bay by-elections postponed

15 December 2014, 15:27 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - ODM wants the Homa Bay Senatorial by elections postponed.

The party wants the polls postponed by two weeks to allow it force through direct nominations by party members after the delegate process failed to go through Monday.

This followed chaotic scenes at the Homa Bay County hall after youth disrupted the nomination process and destroyed voting material.

The party says that it will need time to draw up a new plan to hold the nomination process.

" The chaos was unprecedented. We tried our best to ensure the crowd calms down but it has gone down the drain, election coordinator Peter Odoyo told News24.

There were 408 delegates that were to decide who represents the party in the elections. They range from the Homa Bay Governor, 9 MPs, 48 Members of the County Assembly and 58 representatives from each constituency.

There are 8 candidates seeking the party spot for the by-election, led by the late Senator Otieno Kajwang’s brother Moses, veteran politician Philip Okundi, Caroli Omondi, a former aide to party leader Raila Odinga, Ochieng Mbeo, Oyugi Kambona, Tom Mboya, Fred Rabongo, and Silas Jakakimba.

ODM had been given till Friday 19 December to have a candidate ready for the elections.
