Ndolo, Aladwa clash in battle for Makadara

The ground is set for a bruising battle between former MP Reuben Ndolo and former Nairobi Mayor, George Aladwa, in Sunday’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party nominations in Nairobi.

The two, who are both fierce loyalists of party leader Raila Odinga, have locked horns in their quest to secure the opposition party’s ticket for the Makadara Constituency parliamentary seat.

With both aspirants enjoying a huge supporter base, this contest could yet prove to be the most competitive in the ODM primaries in Nairobi county.

POLITICAL COMEBACK

Ndolo, who was once the area MP (2003-2007), is seeking a political comeback after close to 10 years in the cold, same as his opponent is also keen on making a return to elective politics.

This will be the third Ndolo, a former boxer, is seeking to reclaim his Makadara seat. But first he has to get past the capital city’s last mayor.

Being an experienced politician in his own rights, the fiery Aladwa will certainly give Ndolo a run for his money in the race to wrest the seat from the ruling Jubilee Party.
