ODM 18th April 2017 party primaries results of winners and losers:The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) nominations went down in Nyamira County, Taita Taveta County and Kajiado County. The Most hotly contested seat in the primaries was Governor position in Nyamira county which had Dr. James Gesami and the incumbent Governor John Nyagarama.
Nyamira County has 4 constituencies ( Borabu Constituency,Kitutu Masaba Constituency,North Mugirango Constituency, and West Mugirango Constituency) and is perceived to be an ODM stronghold according to the 2013 presidential elections results where Raila Odinga received votes overwhelmingly.
The exercise of ODM nominations in Nyamira county begun a little late in what the party claims to be attributed to technical hitches. Some polling stations attracted some commotions from voters who agitated because of being asked to use ODM cards for voting instead of their IDs cards only.
In some poling stations, names of voters were missing in the ODM membership resister and they had to resort to using the independent electoral boundaries commission (IEBC) voters register. We will update the winners and losers once the process is done.
