PARTY NOMINATIONS A CLOSER LOOK
Kanu's mlolongo's system was strongly condemned as ineffectual because those with few supporters were declared winners.
Candidates said they were asked for millions to get LDP certificates. Former Cabinet minister Raphael Tuju claimed an Odinga family member requested Sh6m. Narc nominations were shambolic, with similar claims of corruption made.
Large number of ODM aspirants in Rift Valley and Nyanza party hopped. PNU supporters joined and won elections on fringe party tickets. They accused the leaders of unfair nominations.
Nominations fallout in Nyanza resulted in voter apathy, reducing Raila's presidential tally. In Jubilee areas like Central and Rift Valley, some popular candidates joined other parties, such as Kanu, and won.
