ODM Finally Solves Tim Wanyonyi's Issue in Westlands After He Failed to Participate in Nominations

After Westlands Member of Parliament, Tim Wanyonyi failed to take part in the Westlands' Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket nominations which Michael Gumo won, ODM has finally solved the issue.

ODM had earlier announced that Wanyonyi was their preferred candidate in Westlands Constituency, only for Michael Gumo to oppose the move by saying he was the one who had won the ticket.

However, this Sunday, ODM confirmed that the issue has been solved after Michael Gumo agreed to support Wanyonyi.

Azimio Secretary-General Junet Mohamed stated this was after Michael Gumo stepped down on his behalf.

Junet revealed that they held a meeting that was chaired by the party leader himself, Raila Odinga before Gumu stepped down.

“We had a consultation chaired by Odinga and Michael Gumo has accepted to step down in favour of Wanyonyi. The matter has now been sorted those waiting for a fallout should know today is a good Sunday belonging to the Lord,” Junet stated.

Wanyonyi did not take part in the nominations because he was eying the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.

However, things changed after Azimio-OKA settled on Polycarp Igathe as their candidate
