ODM National Elections Board in a statement on Thursday said it had accepted applications of the three as they had met the stated criteria as per the Kenyan and ODM Party Constitution.

“The NEB shall scrutinize the three applications, vet the candidates as required by the ODM Elections and Nomination Rules and subsequent thereto announce the next processes and timetable in accordance with the ODM Constitution,” the board’s chairperson Catherine Mumma said.

The Raila Odinga-led party invited applications for the presidential candidacy from members of the public in January this year.
