A Kibra resident, Francis Arema Akonya, on Tuesday, October 22, went on a rant against ODM officials the party's candidate for the Kibra mini poll, Imran Okoth.
Speaking to the Daily Nation, Akonya stated that Okoth needed a spokesperson, claiming his public speaking skills were below par.
"I'm appealing to ODM headquarters to get Kibra parliamentary aspirant Okoth a spokesman, hajui kuongea (his oratory skills are wanting)," he stated.
Further, he claimed that several candidates were locked out of the ODM Kibra nominations due to meddling by corrupt party officials.
"We have an election going on in Kibra but we have to say that there is some confusion which has been brought about by the ODM Secretariat.
"ODM officials led by ODM Sec-Gen Edwin Sifuna, Makadara MP George Aladwa and the ODM chairman for Kibra community are so corrupt," Akonya added.
He also stated that some of the Kibra residents would accompany him to visit the party leader, Raila Odinga, at his Capitol Hill office in Nairobi to air their grievances.
"We will make sure that ODM has clinched the Kibra parliamentary seat and the corrupt ones should keep off from the campaigns. If they do not, we will not clinch the seat," he warned.
On Tuesday, October 15, a woman passionately went on a tirade against Mcdonald Mariga, the Jubilee Party candidate in the Kibra race.
She noted that Mariga was invading the ODM leader's backyard.
"Ruto's plan to invade Odinga's backyard will not work, despite Mariga being my inlaw I will not support him," the woman stated.
