Saboti MP Caleb Amisi is the new chairman of the Orange Democratic Movement ODM party in Trans Nzoia after he was endorsed in a county management leadership meeting to replace Mr. Patrick Musungu.

Officials at the meeting said settling on Mr. Amisi was aimed at injecting some vibrancy within the orange party which has set sights on securing a large number of elective slots within the county unlike in the past.

“We have done this in line with the party’s constitution after a majority felt that the MP will utilize his national position to coordinate party activities within and beyond Trans Nzoia,” said the county’s ODM secretary John Simiyu.

The county vice chairman Washington Ngesa called on the party to focus on the task ahead which is selling its agenda and drumming support for its party leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid within the county.

“We welcome this new development and call for a coordinated working formula that will strengthen the activities of the party within all the 25 wards in the run up to the 2022 general elections,” said Mr. Ngesa.

The chairman of youths Micheal Ochola extended an olive branch to some officials who were eyeing the seat but did not get the backing of the majority saying the focus should be on achieving the great agenda of the party.

“We welcome everybody on board as we focus on the next general elections. Ideological differences should not be a source of friction but should instead strengthen us more as a party going forward,” said Mr. Ochola.
