Bu­sia ODM as­pi­rants meet ahead of Fri­day’s re­gional del­e­gates’ con­fer­ence

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

About 200 ODM as­pi­rants in Bu­sia county con­verged in Bu­sia town on Sun­day in prepa­ra­tion for the Western Re­gion Del­e­gates’ Con­fer­ence to be held in Kakamega on Fri­day.

ODM Bu­sia county sec­re­tary In­no­cent Oluku said only ac­cred­ited as­pi­rants will be al­lowed into the con­fer­ence, which will be at­tended by party leader Raila Odinga. The na­tional sec­re­tar­iat will set camp in Kakamega to reg­is­ter as­pi­rants.

Po­lit­i­cal hope­fuls who are still em­ployed can write let­ters of in­tent to the na­tional sec­re­tar­iat to de­fer their mem­ber­ship to Fe­bru­ary next year when they will reg­is­ter.

As­pi­rants asked the sec­re­tar­iat to re­store the party’s cred­i­bil­ity through free and fair nom­i­na­tions and en­sure the losers sup­port the win­ners in the gen­eral elec­tion.

Bu­sia deputy speaker Moses Ote urged mem­bers to keep the party vi­brant. Mem­ber Florence Opemi called for peace­ful cam­paigns and urged as­pi­rants to sell their agenda, not abuses.
