Malindi town ward residents yesterday gave ODM two days to issue a certificate to MCA Jared Chokwe or they ditch the party.

They held a peaceful protest over “an injustice”. They claim he won in an ODM primary and was given an interim certificate, but later the certificate was given to David Kadenge.

Residents blamed Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi, the county ODM chairman, and woman representative Aisha Jumwa.

They carried placards written ‘Mama Aisha na Governor Kingi toeni cheti cha Chokwe’ (Aisha and Governor Kingi release Chokwe’s certificate).

Another was written ‘Malindi town ward tumeamua ni Chokwe tano tena’ (Malindi town ward has decided its Chokwe for another five years).

The MCA has been in and out of courts over the nomination.
