ODM strongmen, Aladwa and Ndolo, face off in Makadara primaries

ODM strongmen, Aladwa and Ndolo, face off in Makadara primaries

Makadara Constituency parliamentary seat is one of the most competitive elective seats in the country since time immemorial, having at one time been represented by the immediate former President, Mwai Kibaki, in the National Assembly between 1963 and 1969 during the KANU’s one-party system.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party is keen to wrestle the seat from Jubilee banking on two experienced and strong aspirants; former Makadara Member of Parliament, Reuben Ndolo, and former Nairobi Mayor, George Aladwa.

Reuben Ndolo, who represented the Makadara constituents between 2003-2007, is yearning for a political comeback after close to ten years in the cold. This will be the third time the former boxer is seeking to reclaim his Makadara seat, but first he has to win the ODM ticket.

Standing against Ndolo’s comeback is ODM’s strongman, George Aldwa. Aldwa, who is experienced in city politics considering he was Nairobi Mayor before the enactment of the 2010 Constitution.

Makadara ODM members will be voting Sunday, April 30 to choose who between Ndolo and Aladwa will be facing incumbent, Jubilee’s Benson Kangara, in the August 8 General Election.
