The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has fired a warning at political aspirants who would instigate violence ahead of the August 9 General Elections.
ODM national chairperson and Suba South MP John Mbadi stated that National Executive Council (NEC) had issued directives to the National Elections Board to have aspirants who fuel violence during party nominations be disqualified.
Mbadi maintained that the move is in a fresh bid to being peace and sanity in the party which has been branded chaotic and violent.
“For years ODM has been branded as chaotic and violent during nominations and we are about to change this narrative as we have directed the board to first eliminate violent aspirants so as to pave way for other contenders
Mbadi’s sentiments were echoed by Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo whom insisted on peace and democracy ahead of the preliminaries.
“In as much as the aim of preliminaries is to ensure the party emerges victorious at the end of the day, peace, fairness, and democracy would still be maintained,” she said.
