The Orange Democratic Movement, ODM would like to clarify that the party through the National Elections Board has not cancelled nominations in Nyanza. What the commission has done is to cancel all fake certificates issued by Commissioner Ogundo who has since been suspended alongside others. Aspirants are urged to ensure that only hand signed certain are the right ones. Any certificate bearing a scanned signature in FAKE!
INVALIDATION OF NOMINATION CERTIFICATES.
In view of irregularities in issuance and distribution of nomination certificates for our candidates, particularly the county representatives from Nyanza region, I have disallowed Mr. James Ogundo from further handling of nomination certificates from that region on behalf of the National Elections Board.
I have also removed from office some members of staff suspected to have been involved in the irregularities. This will also affect Western Province. I have invalidated therefore, those certificates previously issued and will personally issue fresh ones to replace those.
I want to underscore that all certificates from ODM are free of charge and have authentic and original signatures.
The Board assures the aspirants and the general public of its commitment to ensuring that the right things are done for the right people and that ODM would not condone practices that can be seen as theft or otherwise.
Hon. Franklin Bett, EGH.
