After much anxiety and debate, the ODM board finally announced the much awaited announcement today, ending days of speculation and anxiety among eight candidates gunning for the ODM ticket.
They named the Late Otieno Kajwang’s brother Moses Otieno as the preferred flag bearer for the Homabay seat.
A member of the elections board told the Star in confidence, “It has been no easy task to identify a successful candidate” for the senatorial race, given the roles each has played for the party.
“We are all set to go. After analysing several items on the table and consulting widely, we shall unveil Moses tomorrow [Tuesday] as the ODM candidate for the Homa Bay by-election,” the commissioner confided to the Star.
“All the candidates are equally qualified. Remember each of them has in one way or the other contributed in great ways to the party or its leader. We had to make a hard decision.”
