The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party, so far has two presidential hopefuls that are eying the presidential position using ODM ticket. These are Businessman Jimi Wanjingi and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
However, Jimi Wajingi, speaking in Mbeere, Embu County, on Saturday, September 4, said that there is a plot by the Orange Democratic Movement Party to conduct secret presidential nominations ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Wanjigi warned ODM leaders against using underhand tactics and methods to pick a presidential candidate, stating that the credibility of the party will be seriously jeopardized.
"I'm an ODM life member, I am fully aware of the methods the party may use to pick its presidential flag-bearer," said Wanjigi, who fell short of making reference to the infamous 'Men in Black' incident
"I would like to remind Odinga that the ODM constitution lays it out very well in Article 6 that all national officials shall be elected by the national delegates conference," he added.
Wanjigi also turned the heat on Orange Democratic Movement Secretary's General Edwin Sifuna, asking him to hold party nominations. The businessman noted that Edwin Sifuna has so far received two applications from party members, wishing to contest for the presidential ticket.
