Youth destroy ballots as ODM Homa Bay nominations abort

15 December 2014, 14:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The ODM Homa Bay nominations have aborted after youth destroyed voting material and police were forced to disperse the crowd.

The heated nomination process failed to kick off in the end after the youth refused to listen to pleas by election officials to calm down.

The issue at hand was the delegates list, which had caused much friction for the duration of the day, with the youth claiming it had been doctored.

They were at first calmed down when the returning officer agreed to read out aloud the names of delegates before they voted but others proceeded to destroy the voting material.

Police on the ground were thus forced to release tear gas canisters to disperse the crowd as the elections aborted.

The way forward is set to be explained by the party in the coming hours.

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

There are 8 candidates running for the sole place, 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.
