In his first step into politics, Pavel Oimeke trounced seasons politicians to clinch the Bonchari MP seat during the ill-tempered by-election in 2021 May. Fast forward, the legislator finds himself in a bitter fight to save his political career.
Shunned by his own ODM party which gave him a political muscle, Oimeke now finds himself in an awkward political position with only two months remaining to the August 9 general election.
After only one year in office, the former Energy Regulatory Commission Director General could be on his way out of Parliament. Can he save his political career?
In April, the Raila Odinga-led ODM opted to deny Oimeke the party ticket. Instead, Jonah Onkendi will now fly the party flag come the August 9 general election.
Since being denied the party ticket, Oimeke has gone silent, leaving many speculating on his next political move. Will he defend his seat as an independent?
Considering the ODM party popularity in the region, it will be very hard for the MP to recapture his seat as an independent candidate.
At one point, it was rumoured that legislator will not be defending his position. However, he is yet to come out openly to confirm or deny the speculations.
