Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo

The latest is the National Assembly deputy minority leader Jakoyo Midiwo who has been handed an embarrassing defeat by Siaya politician Elisha Odhiambo in the ODM primaries.

Odhiambo was on Wednesday declared the winner of the Gem ODM primaries by returning officer Willis Anayo.

According to the final tally, Odhiambo garnered 13,400 votes against Midiwo’s  8,900 votes.

Rading Otieno came in third with 1,821 votes.

Midiwo immediately disputed the results soon after the announcement citing massive irregularities in the entire process.
