The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) will on Thursday, April 13 afternoon decide the fate of leaders who were summoned over violence witnessed in Migori and Nairobi counties ahead of primaries.

ODM Disciplinary Committee Chair, Fred Athuok, says they will release findings after grilling Migori Governor Okoth Obado, his main challenger Ochilo Ayacko and MPs Elizabeth Ongoro and T.J. Kajwang’.

Committee chair, Fred Athuok, however, says Busia Governor, Sospeter Ojaamong’ and Funyula MP, Paul Otuoma, who is eyeing the governorship, have been let off the hook with a warning over Busia chaos.

This comes after the Disciplinary Committee questioned 16 ODM politicians from Migori and Busia Counties as well as Ruaraka and Mathare Constituencies over violence reported in the last two weeks.

On Monday, ODM grilled its members linked to violent scenes witnessed in Migori, Busia, Mathare and at the party headquarters in Nairobi.

Senator Elizabeth Ongoro was the first to face the discipline committee followed by her competitor for Ruaraka Constituency parliamentary seat TJ Kajwang’.

Ongoro was put to task over the fracas she allegedly stirred at the party headquarters in Nairobi alongside her supporters over nomination crisis pitting her and TJ Kajwang’.

She stormed party offices lamenting the omission of her name from the party nomination list that the party submitted to the electoral commission.

The senator slammed the party of orchestrating a plan to lock her out of the August 8 polls in favour of the incumbent MP TJ Kajwang’.

She emerged out of the grilling room relaxed, exuding confidence that the committee will take prudent action.
