We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Results of Kajiado county ODM nomination exercise in three constituencies for MP, Woman Representative and Senate aspirants were announced today.

The party, in spite of having deferred nominations in Kajiado North and parts of Kajiado East constituencies over claims of rigging, gave the names of winners for various seats.

The announcements made from Kajiado town saw Daniel Tinaayai win the senate nomination with 46, 865 votes against Risa Nakayo’s 1, 860 and Sammy Oleku’s 1,246.

In the Women Rep category, Esther Karapio Somoire got 23, 601 votes against Caroline Letura’s 15, 607 and Lucy Naneu Shurake’s 12, 290.

Letura and Shurake said it was wrong for the party to announce the results before the voters in Kajiado East and Kajiado North constituencies are done.

On Tuesday, officials of the party led by Judy Pareno announced that the exercise in the populous Kajiado North and East would resume tomorrow.

There are close to 140, 000 voters in Kajiado North while 80, 000 people are eligible voters in Kajiado East.

In Kajiado Central, MP Memusi Kachory was given direct nomination of the party along with MP aspirant, Joseph Simel of Kajiado West.

Kajiado North Constituency has the largest participants in the party where five candidates will face each other in the contest.

Among the contestants are; Beutah Maroko, Andrew Nyangwansa, George Monyenche and Samson Anienda, who will face off in a bare-knuckles contest.

George Kimiti and Bob Njagi will be fighting for their positions for party flag-bearer against Kakuta Maimai in Kajiado East.

In Kajiado South, Thomas Lekanaiyia won the nomination with 5, 327 votes against Lenana Momoi’s 3, 164.
