Former Raila aide Eliud Owalo quits Orange party


Former ODM strategist Eliud Owalo has officially resigned as a member of the Orange party.
The management consultant who served as ODM’s strategist and Raila Odinga’s aide in the run-in to 2013 General Elections wrote to ODM’s Secretary General and the Registrar of Political Parties on Tuesday, to remove his name from the party membership register immediately.
“It is with great regret that I write to inform you that I have with immediate effect relinquished my membership of the ODM Party,” read the letter in parts.
“My resignation is informed by the fact that my political ideology, convictions, and belief no longer has congruence and common denominator with that of the ODM party, its value orientation and practices.”
Owalo who is eying the Kibra seat after the death of former MP Ken Okoth will now vie for the seat in a yet-to-be-disclosed party.
Owalo also contested for the Kibra seat in the 2013 elections but lost to Okoth in the nominations.
