Homa Bay, Migori ODM nominations moved

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has moved its nominations for the Homa Bay and Migori counties to April 24.

The move will see the two counties hold nominations on the same day that Kisumu and Siaya counties will also hold their nominations.

Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti will face off with Kasipul MP Oyugi Magwanga and businessman Sam Wakiaga.

In Migori, two protagonists, Governor Okoth Obado and former Cabinet minister Ochillo Ayacko as well as Nyatike MP Edick Anyanga’s wife Anne and Paul Odola will be battling for the ODM ticket. Mr. Obado was elected on a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2013, after defecting from ODM following shambolic primaries.

Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga will battle to retain his seat against a challenge from Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo, businessman William Oduol and former PS Carey Orege.

In Kisumu, Governor Jack Ranguma will face off with Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o, Dr Hezron McObewa, Gordon Wayumba, Asaka Nyangara and Chrispine Ondiek.
