While accepting his nomination, Ndume urged his colleagues to vote according to their conscience.

Noting that his decision to run was a tough one, Ndume said there was a need for the Senate to be inter-dependent from the executive arm of government.

He maintained that there was a need to make a legal framework for constituency project which usually causes controversy.
