2. “We have built ODM with pain and sweat. So if I see anybody trying to split the baby, I’m pained. I’m saying if it’s so difficult, let it not go down in history that Otuma divided ODM in Busia, which is the most orange county,” he said, a hint he might leave the ticket to Ojaamong.
3. “I promise you I’ll be on the ballot for the governorship of Busia… Already you’ve given me the mandate.You’ve said you know the governor you elected. So with or without [the nomination] certificate, Otuoma shall be the governor of Busia,” he told the excited crowd.
4. “I feel pained. This guy [Ojaamong] reminds me of Tharaka Nithi. The guy was allowed to appoint the referee, but even with that, we’ve overrun him.
5. “The two Teso constituencies did not vote for Ojaamong in 2013, hence should not be victimised for the electoral fraud in that region.
6. “An individual commits crime, a community doesn’t. The person who has committed crime is Ojaamong, not the Tesso community,” he said, in veiled reference to the planned repeat poll.
