The Star News paper discloses that every party official in ODM seemed to be distancing himself from the good lady when she was mention having been nominated. So who nominated her?

“What has been her role in our struggle? …Let’s know if she is a widow of one of the many young people in ODM whose lives ended at the ricocheting of the gun,” a popular ODM youth leader remarked as quoted by The Star.

According to the Standard on Saturday, August 26, ODM defended Chebeni’s nomination, insisting that due process was followed in the selection of all nominated Senators and MPs whose names were gazetted by the Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission (IEBC).

ODM National Deputy Treasurer Ogla Karani who was the chairperson of the party’s nominations committee told the standard that no one influenced the party or IEBC to select Chebeni.
“I called our ODM Executive Director Oduor Ongwen late in the night, we tried calling many people from the list of our applicants to get their details past midnight but it was in vain. Ms Chebeni and a handful of others picked their phones and furnished us with their details,” said Mrs Karani as reported by The Standard.

Karani explained further that Chebeni was a second option on the list and was lucky to get the nomination because IEBC had to alternate the candidate after they picked a man to represent the Jubilee side’s youth category.
