Orange Democratic Movement party’s Organizing Secretary in Kibra Constituency has resigned.

While announcing his resignation, Sigar Agumba lamented that the party “does not support home-grown leaders”.

The resignation came on the same day that the party is conducting its nomination exercise to identify a candidate who will challenge Jubilee’s MacDonald Mariga and Amani National Congress’ Eliud Owalo.

He further hinted at contesting for the Kibra parliamentary seat in the 07 November by election on a KANU ticket.

Nomination for the ODM party ticket is currently underway with only registered party members are allowed to take part.

Reports suggest that Agumba who had expressed interest in the seat resigned in protest after the party declined a boardroom arrangement to hand him the ticket, instead opting to have the party members select the candidate in a democratic process.

Agumba contested the seat in 2013 and lost to ODM’s Ken Okoth, coming in second.

Kibra was a beehive of activities on Friday with all candidates in last-minute efforts to win ODM party members.

Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Friday joined ODM's Benson Musungu for an elaborate campaign in Kibra Constituency, slamming MacDonald Mariga and other aspirants in the a by-election billed to be a battle between DP William Ruto and Raila Odinga.

In a convoy that traversed the constituency, Kuria urged residents to vote for Musungu in the ODM nominations and the November 07 by-election in which he will face off with Jubilee’s Macdonald Mariga.

Mamoth crowds lined up the streets to welcome Kuria, who went on the offensive against his own party’s candidate.
