Both Hon Oburu Odinga, a member of the East African Legislative Assembly and the brother of former prime minister Raila Odinga, and Siaya County senator James Orengo, who is running for governor on the Orange Democratic Movement party ticket, have asked for forgiveness over the chaotic party primary process.
The two pleaded with the people of Siaya to pardon the Orange Democratic Movement party family for the irregularities that were seen throughout the exercise and which disqualified some contestants.
However, they defended themselves, saying that they had chosen to beg for forgiveness on the party's behalf even though they had not participated in the irregularities.
Orengo pleaded with the locals not to humiliate him since Raila had pledged to raise funding for Siaya County, and that could only happen if the Orange Democratic Movement won the governorship.
