ODM party political affairs secretary Opiyo Wandayi is now raising an alarm over the extra ordinary strength of independent candidates in the nyanza region that is going to see all ODM party candidates fail terribly come August 9th polls
Wandayi said those who have received nomination certificates and have been cleared by IEBC to vie for different positions should step out of their comfort zones and campaign to avoid shaming the giant party
Speaking to Kisumu, Opiyo said those who are not ready for the campaign should return their tickets for the party.
Adding that some candidates hid behind party dominance while their independent counterparts engaged in aggressive campaigns to promote their offers.
Wandayi, who is the Ugunja MP in Siaya County, said the party needed strong campaigns to win all seats in the region.
He said the party considers ticket issuers to conduct coordinated campaigns in the region.
ODM has been increasingly criticized for conducting chaotic nominations with the party’s decision to opt for direct nominations angering some members who often choose to compete for independent tickets
