“No Otuoma! No Raila!” Odinga’s new dilemma as chaos rocks ODM Primaries

The Funyula MP in particular took issue with the Teso North and Teso South constituencies results.

Scenes in Busia County soon after the ODM Primaries results were announced.

Party supporters from Busia County have vowed not to back his presidential election after Governor Sospeter Ojaamong was declared the winner beating after beating Funyula MP Paul Otuoma in the chaotic Busia gubernatorial primaries.

In the results announced by ODM chairman of the Busia County Elections Committee Joseph Juma, Ojaamong is said to have garnered 92,358 votes against Otuoma’s 63,752 votes.

Otuoma immediately rejected the results claiming that the elections were stolen.

The Funyula MP in particular took issue with the Teso North and Teso South constituencies results which gave Ojaamong nearly 80,000 votes out of the incumbent’s 92,358 final vote tally.

"Total registered votes in Teso ni 38,000. Sasa, hii watu wamepiga kuliko wenye wako registered kwa IEBC. Hata ukiwa mwizi lazima ukuwe na akili na adabu (They voted more than the numbers registered by IEBC. Even as a thief, one should be smart and use their common sense)," Otuoma said.

"Msiwe na hofu wenye watoto wanajulikana (Don't fear. The children's owner is known). Where do you get 90,000 in two constituencies?" Otuoma posed.

Raila threatened

"No Otuoma! No Raila! No Otuoma! No peace in Busia !" Otuoma's supporters shouted and demonstrated soon after the announcement of the results.

However, Ojaamong claimed he won in a free and fair contest and termed Otuoma as a jubilee mole.

"It has been a bruising battle but we are glad we have come out triumphantly," Ojaamong said soon after being declared winner.

Sources indicate Raila has now summoned ODM Elections Board chair Judy Pareno over the chaotic Busia primaries with suspension of the results a likely possibility.
