Shock On Seme MP Aspirants As ODM Issues Direct Ticket


Seme parliamentary aspirants on ODM ticket woke up to a rude shock on Tuesday after the party opted not to conduct nominations for the particular seat.

Julius Owino MajiMaji an aspirant says that they were shocked to find that ODM Party had not slotted nominations for Seme parliamentary seat in the ongoing nominations.

“We woke up very early in the morning to cast our votes upon arrival at the polling stations, we discovered that the MP slot was blank meaning the part had already made its decision. In this case we call it the direct ticket,” said MajiMaji.

MajiMaji has described the move as retrogressive and subversive of democracy.

“It is very painful to the aspirants and the voters as well because democracy demands that people should be given the chance to nominate and vote for their favourite candidates.”


According to MajiMaji, party officials had not communicated to them about their intentions to issue direct tickets.

“I wish they had informed us in time and given us a chance to air our views. This would have helped us question the process with which they used to issue direct tickets,” he said.

The aspirants are not sure who might have been given the direct ticket but reports indicate that the incumbent Dr. James Nyikal might have taken it.

Other aspirants who were hoping to clinch the ODM ticket are Ndolo Ayah and Haggai Kadiri.

“Our next course of action is going to the party to sick a way forward. But as it is, I have already cast my vote for the woman representative seat, MCA and senate.”
