Yesterday marked the end of the grace period in the Orange Democratic Movement party for interested presidential applicants to submit their applications. Three candidates sent their applications to the party committee, Wickliff Oparanya, the Kakamega Senator, Hassan Ali Joho, Mombasa Senator, and Raila Odinga, the ODM party leader have so far sent their applications.
This is a battle for political superiority since the two governors are deputy party leaders while Raila is the founder and the head of the party, making it difficult for the two to stand a chance of winning. Kenyans on Twitter have expressed their views concerning this presidential nomination for the ODM ticket.
Kenyans say that that is the most predictable nomination ever since the two deputy party leaders are not as competent and convincing as Raila Odinga who has so far been described as a political enigma. This has risen political tensions in the party since Joho and Oparanya seem to be having counter views on national matters with their party leaders.
