Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party suffers a major setback as Homa Bay county supporters abandon the party ahead of the August general elections.
The August election has created a competitive political platform as political leaders raise their ambitions to win the race. Perhaps the Nyanza region is an Orange Democratic Movement, and the Azimio la Umoja-dominated area backs their boss Raila Odinga’s bid to become Kenya’s fifth president.
As a result, the ODM party nomination process has struck a nerve among its supporters, with many accusing it of being incoherent and dishonest, leading to unsatisfactory results.
Gladys Wanga received a direct nomination from the ODM party, but her counterpart Evans Kidero was dissatisfied with the party’s emphasis. As a result, Kidero won the independent ticket against Gladys Wanga of the ODM.
As a result, Homa Bay residents have changed their tune, claiming that if ODM’s plans are not invalidated, they will vote for independent candidates. If they don’t hear voices from the ground, this will be a major setback for the party.
