Kenya: Kisii Aspirants Reject Sharing

TWO women who are eyeing the Kisii County women representative's seat have rejected plans by ODM executive committee to have the post reserved for Bonchari constituency.

Brigid Ombati and Rose Nyanchoka Okemwa said they were not consulted by the committee when the resolutions were made. They claimed the move targets to edge them out of the race.

Ombati and Okemwa, who hail from Bomachoge and South Mugirango respectively, rejected the proposal to have the seat reserved for Mary Otara.
