In a statement to the press, ODM party director of Communication Phillip Etale said that the exercise has been moved to tomorrow Saturday, after detecting a "problem on the ballot papers that were meant for the execirce."

Etale has said that there was a mix up in the names on the ballot papers hence the calling off of the exercise by the National Election Board Commissioner in charge of the exercise Mr. Edward Nyale.

"The exercise has been pushed to tomorrow Saturday 29th April 2017 as result. The NEB regrets the inconvenience caused to aspirants and members. Mr. Nyale will address a media conference from Mombasa at 1000Hrs," Etale said in a statement.

The postponement of the primaries comes on the material day of the planned primaries, and the exercise had been pushed following the disputed elections that were marred by irregularities in the area.

The exercise was to be repeated in 19 polling stations spread across six wards in ODM's stronghold Mombasa County.
