ODM women aspirants in Migori on Monday snubbed a vetting exercise for aspirants eying the post of women representative in Migori County held today (Monday).

Dr Pamela Odhiambo, a lecturer at the Jomo Kenyatta University is the only aspirant that turned up with the required documents including amembership certificate among others for the vetting exercise.

The aspirants are required to present their party membership cards for verification; prove their loyalty and commitment to the party, which should be depicted by the support they have offered during party activities among other things.

Speaking to Radio Ramogi, Migori county ODM chairperson Philip Makabongo said they approved Dr Pamela’s candidature, adding that she is now free to woo votes ahead of the party primaries scheduled for next year.

He said an invitation was sent to all aspirants for the post of women representative even though many failed to turn up for the vetting exercise, adding that only three aspirants sent their apology.

The county party chairperson said the aspirants who did not turn up for the vetting exercise still have the time to present their documents before party officials for verification.

Makabongo said the party is ready to approve any aspirant to start battling for the party ticket as long he or she meets the requirement.

This vetting exercise will also establish those aspirants who are genuine.

The county party officials are scheduled to meet all aspirants for the senator position on an party ticket next week then finalise with gubernatorial aspirants the following week.
