That over 200 youths overpowered police and entered ACK Guest House in Homa Bay County where ODM had stored its electoral materials is regrettable.
ODM youths have been in the news for all the wrong reasons and the party leadership should intervene to stem the trend.
Just two weeks ago, the youths disrupted a meeting that was attended by party bigwigs.
Last year, the youths disrupted ODM elections that were to be held at the Safaricom Stadium and vandalised electoral materials.
ODM needs to realise that these youths are a liability to the Orange party.
Many people love Raila Odinga but he must also realise that some of his supporters hate the way his youths deal with party matters. He must start doing things differently and talk sense into the youths.
ODM must also start conducting free and fair elections.
By 2017, the party needs to have earned people’s trust through having their youths, organs and leaders do the right things.
