Why ODM strongmen missed EALA slots grabbed by Winnie Odinga
ODM EALA candidates


 The East African Legislative Assembly candidate slate for the ODM party has been made public (EALA).


On Tuesday, the contenders who would be examined for election to EALA were nominated by the Selection Committee, which was chaired by Deputy Party Leader Wycliffe Oparanya.


Winnie Odinga, the daughter of ODM Party leader Raila Odinga and a key player in the Azimio la Umoja campaigns building up to the August General Election, is one of the candidates.


Suleiman Shahbal, who ran for the ODM party ticket in the Mombasa Governor campaign but lost to incumbent Abdulswamad Nassir, is another well-known contender.


Mohammed Diriye, Timothy Bosire, Beatrice Askul, and Justus Kizito are more ODM candidates.


In October, there were rumors that Odinga had applied for the EALA seat but had been rejected.


"I have not applied for EALA, and the party has not sent any formal communications." She claimed that the incoming CS was simply annoyed by the female.


The list will be narrowed before the House votes on November 17, even though the joint National Assembly and Senate committee on the nomination of EALA members reported receiving 287 applications on Tuesday, November 8.


Independent candidates must send in their applications by Wednesday, November 9, just like their party-affiliated peers.
