Aspirants are outdoing each other in visiting the home of Mama Ulda Ojode ahead of ODM nominations scheduled forAugust 12.
The latest to visit Ulda at her home in Ratang’a village was Denis Orero.
Orero claimed Ojode endorsed him to lead the constituency after his retirement.
“It is very sad that he died before he retired as an MP for Ndhiwa. His demise occurred before he fulfilled a promise he had made to me,” Orero said.
Orero led a delegation to Ulda’s home where he met her and her eldest son Sam Ojode.
“It is unfortunate that Orwa died while I was in London, but I have finally come. I want to succeed him but I felt it is ideal not to start my campaigns before condoling with your family,” Orero told Ulda.
She welcomed the aspirant as a great family friend.
“I thank God that I still have people who can be close to me after losing my son,” she said.
The late MP’s brother Sam told residents to avoid believing that they are supporting aspirants who have visited the family.
