Following the nullification of Westlands nominations MP ticket to Hon. Tim Wanyonyi by the Political Parties Tribunal, ODM party members and Westlands aspirants Hon. Sunjeev Kaur Birdi, Mr. Tom Wafula Wachiye and Mr. Noel Nyongesa issued a joint today.
The statement was conducted within Westlands in Bidwood Suites. Mr. Noel Nyongesa supported the courts ruling for nominations to be held within 72 hours which was issued on Friday. Hon. Sunjeev Kaur Birdi embodied the position by emphasizing the importance of democratic processes that must be followed and that they were not consulted. Her remarks focused on the representation of Asian minority, as seen by the presence of Asian Community Members of various ethnicities, primarily Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims as the 44th tribe in Kenya.
Her words of encouragement were also to the entire Kenyan public, from every ethnic background vying nationwide. Because it is not easy vying as minority communities. Hon. Birdi exemplified the her support for ODM flag bearer and leader of the Azimio La Umoja movement, Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga. She emphasized his unselfish contribution to Kenya’s independence and the country’s legacy towards economic and democratic liberation struggles, concluding with a strong statement that Hon. Baba Raila Amolo Odinga is the most suitable Presidential Candidate.
We are safe with Baba. When asked, “What would you have done if the ODM party failed or only addressed this issue minimally, how would you deal with it?” The strong reaction from each candidate backs the initiative to pursue legal action in order to preserve citizens’ democracy in voting at the 2022 elections. After all, the public should elect a competent, peoples leader.
