Ongoro wants ODM to punish those who went against Kajwang’

25 February 2015, 20:54 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) nominated Senator, Elizabeth Ongoro has asked party leader, Raila Odinga, to allow the party organs to crack the whip and discipline party rebels.

Ongoro said it was unacceptable for some party members to continue advancing a political agenda aimed at rocking the party from within.

“The recent Homa Bay senatorial by election exposed the moles within the party after they campaigned against the ODM candidate, Moses Kajwang’, and I am now appealing to our party leader to give us the green light as national officials to deal with them accordingly,” she said.

Ongoro, who is the ODM national Deputy Secretary General, made the remarks on Saturday during the burial of ODM nominated member of Homa Bay county assembly, Monica Omollo in Ndhiwa sub-County.

She said she will use her position to streamline party primaries for elective post to ensure free and fair nomination of party flag bearers.

“We want to ensure that botched nominations, rigging, direct issuance of nomination certificates as well as bribing for certificates will be a thing of the past in our party,” she said.

Ongoro added that in future, party nominees to Parliament, Senate and County Assemblies will be sourced from amongst the grassroots’ party mobilisers in a transparent manner.

Addressing the same meeting, ODM chairman, John Mbadi asked Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chairman, Issack Hassan and former commissioner of defunct Interim Independent Electoral Commission and now cabinet secretary, Davis Chirchir both of whom have been implicated in the 'chicken scandal' to step aside until their names are cleared.

Also present during the burial were Homa Bay Governor, Cyprian Awiti and Ruaraka MP, T. J Kajwang' among other dignitaries.
