Orange Democratic Movement party leaders from six counties in North Rift have asked the party leader Raila Odinga to urgently call for fresh party elections to inject in new blood in the running and management of the party affairs ahead of the next general elections.

The leaders said that it was only through fresh elections that ODM would be salvaged from disintegrating further due to bad leadership from a section of the top party leaders who are driving out key supporters from the party.

The leaders drawn from Uasin Gishu, TransNzoia, West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet, Nandi and Turkana called on Raila who is also the Prime minister to hasten the process of conducting the much awaited party elections for democracy to prevail in ODM.

Led by Richard Kemboi (Uasin Gishu), Gabriel Biketi (TransNzoia), and Michael Sirotwet (West Pokot), they have vowed to rally behind a leading Nairobi based architect Julius Okinda for the seat of party secretary general, currently being occupied by Prof Anyan’g Nyong’o.

They said that it was a high time Prof Nyongo was replaced for the coveted seat to pave way for a credible person to steer the party to great heights besides, enable the party regain its dwindling strength and popularity on the ground.

The leaders who were addressing the press in Eldoret town, at the same time called upon the Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi to reconsider his decision to quit the party a head of the next general elections to save his political career.

They told Mudavadi to reconsider his decision of leaving ODM noting that his action was likely to backfire on him since majority of Kenyans were still embracing the party due to its stand on eradication

of poverty, corruption and good governance.
