Pavel Oimeke was issued with ODM nomination certificate to represents the party in the upcoming Bonchari MP by election.
Secretary General of ODM Edwin Sifuna expressed his confidence that their candidate Oimeke will be cleared by the anti-graft agency and issue him with a clearance certificate.
Oimeke is accused of demanding money to approve the reopening of the petrol station in Oyugis, which had been shut down over tax violations.
Oimeke resigned from EPRA to vie for the seat amid ongoing graft case in court. Sifuna stated the one is innocent until proven guilty so there is no way he will be denied the clearance certificate. The party also asked IEBC to conduct a free and fair election on May 18.
