ODM’s Homabay Senatorial Seat aspirants got a rude shock this week when CORD’s Deputy Party Leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, announced that the coalition’s affiliate parties will not issue nomination certificates to other contestants in the forthcoming Homabay Senatorial elections.
This, he said, was to guarantee the coalition’s chances of retaining the vacant seat which was left behind after the death of Otieno Jakwang’.
Kalonzo Musyoka was speaking during the handing over of the coalition’s nomination certificate to Mose Kajwang, who was internally nominated by the party to gun for the vacant seat left by his late brother.
This announcement dealt a huge blow to some aspirants who thought that they could ride on the coalition’s wave in the county. This therefore means that those who defected from ODM can now not hope for nomination to the Senatorial race via Wiper Democratic Party or through Ford Kenya.
