A senior ODM official has now blamed the Wiper Party for the loss of the Langa'ata parliamentary seat to Jubilee.

Seth Odongo, who is also ODM's deputy director of communication, stated that the Kalonzo Musyoka-led party fielded a weak candidate who split the NASA vote basket.

The seat was won by Jubilee's Nixon Korir who garnered 41086 votes, beating ODM's Oscar Omoke who got 39, 593 votes.

"Wiper Party made ODM lose Langata Constituency seat to Jubilee. By fielding a candidate who was weak by all accounts, and ended up splitting the vote, the difference of which made the Jubilee candidate win, Langata was gone," the official stated.

Odongo, popularly known as Disembe, spoke after the Wiper party demanded a slot from ODM in the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

The third was an independent candidate who garnered slightly above 6000 votes.

The NASA affiliate candidates included Judith Sijeny (Wiper), Kiprotich Tunoi (Chama Cha Mashinani), Daniel Odera (Ford Kenya) and William Kipkemboi (ANC).
