Results Announced for ODM Nominations in Migori as Section of Aspirants Claims There Was Rigging

Nominated Member of Parliament Hon Dennitah Ghati and her Suna West counterpart Peter Masara were last night controversially declared winners in the ODM nominations that was held in Migori county. They will be campaigning for former prime minister Raila Odinga because this ODM tickets is likely to guarantee them a win in the coming general election.

Otherwise, those who were competing with them have protested the results. Hon Masara garnered 8,799 votes to clinch the ODM ticket, beating former MP Joseph Ndiege, who had 8,671.

On the other hand, Hon Ghati defeated her main challenger, Ms Fatuma Mohammed, by getting 37,792 votes against the latter’s 23,552 in the results announced late last night.

As vote tallying was underway at Migori Teachers College, Ms Mohammed and her supporters stormed the venue, threatening to stop the process.
