Here’s is the full statement from NEB :
The National Elections Board of the ODM has received results of yesterday’s nominations exercise in Busia, Bungoma and Machakos Counties from respective Returning Officers.
The Board has since receipt of the results been scrutinizing them with the aim of making the final announcement as required by the party constitution .
However, the Board has noticed major irregularities in the results for the Busia gubernatorial nomination exercise which if announced as is can cause discordance among members in the County.
In view of the above reasons, the Board has made a decision to nullify the Busia gubernatorial nomination results and ordered a repeat exercise on Tuesday 25th April 2017.
Results for the other seats remain as they were received.
