Raila told to keep off ODM polls

20 January 2014, 08:25

Kisumu - Former Prime Minister and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, has been cautioned against endorsing candidates for the party’s coming polls.

According to MPs allied to the party, those interested in vying for posts in next month’s elections should campaign without influence and should not invoke Raila’s name in their campaigns, The Standard reports.

Some candidates had started to complain that they had been asked to step down in favour of the others, for the party to achieve regional balance as it prepares for the 2017 General Election.

Already, the party’s outgoing Secretary General Prof Anyang Nyong'o said he will not defend his seat in the polls set for February 28, 2013..

Nyong'o, despite saying he will not run for re-election, however said that he would continue being active in the affairs of the party as it enters a critical stage in its history.

It means that only party leader Raila Odinga will remain as one of the 'senior' figures in the party in the coming elections with the likes of Kenneth Marende, Henry Kosgey, Fraklin Bett and other key officials not running in the upcoming elections.
