The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has postponed its decision to replace party Secretary General Ababu Namwamba, Vice chair Paul Otuoma and Bungoma County chair John Waluke after they failed to tender their resignation letters days after their reported quitting of party posts.

In a meeting chaired by ODM party leader Raila Odinga, ODM’s Central Management Committee says it made the move since the three rebel MPs from Western Kenya are yet to hand in their resignation letters after announcing their decisions in rallies.

The Central Committee has, however, discussed formation of a new National Elections Board (NEB) proposing five names to be forwarded to party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) Thursday for approval.

This comes as ODM plans to tour Rift Valley and Western Kenya starting weekend with the first stop in Narok on Saturday, Ugunja on Sunday, Vihiga on Monday and Tuesday, Busia on Wednesday and Thursday and conclude with Kakamega on Friday.

The law makers who announced their resignation from party positions, Namwamba, Otuoma and Walukhe, skipped the crucial meeting after they vowed to deny Odinga the Western vote in next year’s General Election, accusing him of sidelining leaders from the region.
