Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party plans to celebrate 10 years of its existence next month.
A statement from the party said the celebration will be held in Nairobi on September 2.
“On the 2nd of September, 2016, Kenya’s biggest political movement shall celebrate ten years of existence and greatness. It will be a moment like no other,” the statement read in part.
According to the statement, ODM has helped transform Kenya in many ways since its establishment as a movement in 2016.
“It is a movement that has for the last ten years, journeyed through the mountains, hard terrains and valleys and penetrated into towns, shopping centres and villages,” the party said.

The party said the event will be used to mark a decade of political struggles and achievements and will be graced by party leader Raila Odinga.
“The Party Life Members shall be treated to a dinner in Nairobi, to mark a decade of political struggles and achievement and plan future success ahead of 2017 General Elections.
“All Life Members are invited to this dinner and will have an opportunity to interact, exchange ideas and share great moments with party leader, the Raila Amolo Odinga,” the statement said.
ODM was formed after 2005 constitutional referendum. Its members were opposed to the then proposed constitution and took the name Orange because it was a symbol that was used to represent a “No” vote during the referendum.
