A repeat of the nomination exercise will take place on April 25, 2017. This was announced by Hon. Judith Pareno the Orange Democratic National Elections Board chairperson. The results for other positions remain intact. This means that, it is only the governor’s nominations that will be repeated. 

Otwoma called a Jubilee Mole

Mr. Ojaamong said that Otwuma is a Jubilee mole aiming to disrupt peace in ODM party primaries. He said this will addressing the media after the nomination process in Busia. 

Violence in Machakos Primaries 

The nomination process was also violent in Machakos County. The ODM voters claimed that rigging had occurred there.   

A total of 16,000 voters turned up for the nomination process. The town was painted orange by the ODM supporters. 

The returning officer for Machakos declared Bob Nyambaka as the ODM nominations winner for Mavoko constituency in Machakos. This happened despite the fact that the votes for Muthwani ward were not tallied. 


The outcomes from the ODM primaries in Machakos, Bungoma and Busia has set a bad precedent for the remaining counties. What is happening? This may make ODM to lose its credibility. For NASA to win the presidential elections fairness and credibility should be at the top of their agenda. We encourage the ODM to cancel any nomination results that has been rigged.
