TNA has said it will not use schools for its nominations scheduled for Thursday. The party's secretary general Onyango Oloo yesterday said they will use churches, mosques, chief camps, market places and other available public places instead of the learning institutions.

The party had initially asked the Ministry of Education to close schools on January 17 so that the facilities can be used for the party's primaries.

ODM has also made the same request but the ministry has been reluctant to heed to it. Oloo announced that the party has put in place a national dispute resolution tribunal and one tribunal in each of the 47 counties.
