Tuesday September 17, 2019 - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has asked its supporters to ignore fake news on the Standard newspaper.
On Monday, the Standard reported that ODM party leader, Raila Odinga, was not happy with how the party conducted its primaries in Kibera on September 7th.
In a statement released to media houses on Tuesday, ODM said that the Kibra nominations were undertaken in a free and fair manner as opposed to reports that they were bungled.
ODM said that the claims by the Standard are ill-motivated and ill-driven.
“Once again, Mr Odinga urges ODM supporters to continue ignoring, while carefully monitoring, the Standard’s malicious reporting on the Party’s activities in Kibra.”
“He appeals to all aspirants to remain true to their pledge, back the candidate and help the party retain the seat in November,” part of the statement reads.
The Orange Party insisted that the exercise reflected the will of the people of Kibra.
During the nominations that were marred with bribery allegations, Imran Okoth emerged as the winner.
Imran isa brother to late Kibra MP, Ken Okoth.
Ken succumbed to Colorectal Cancer in July this year.
