The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has cautioned Kenyans to be wary of a scam by unscrupulous individuals to  possibly fleece the public.

According to the opposition party’s communications director Phil Etale, the scam is the work of “opponents” who are all out to soil the name of the party.

Meanwhile, those behind the suspected syndicate seemed to have used the all too common practice of associating with popular personalities or institutions  – in their effort to swindle the public.

Thus, they have opened a Facebook page under the name “Orange Democratic Movement Youth Congress” a forum that has been subscribed to by more than 5000 people by Thursday morning.

The most recent post in the page indicates that the party is “recruiting agents and super-agents” in all of the countries 47 Counties, who stand to pocket a daily allowance of between Sh 1,600 and Sh 3,400.

The message, which is accompanied by opposition leader Raila Odinga’s photo, doesn’t however offer any job description for the “agents”
