The four governors leading Luo Nyanza Counties of Kisumu, Siaya, Homa Bay and Migori met in Homa Bay and declared their support for CORD Leader Raila Odinga’s 2017 bid.
Speaking in Mawego Catholic Church where they attended a funds-drive, governors Okoth Obado (Migori), Cyprian Awiti (Homa Bay), Cornell Rasanga (Siaya) and Jack Ranguma (Kisumu) were upbeat they all will be re-elected, saying they have set the region into the path of prosperity.
The governors urged those criticizing their work to return to counties ”from Nairobi” and see what counties have achieved despite the challenges devolution still faces.
Migori Governor Okoth Obado reiterated he will defend his seat on an ODM ticket, urging the region to register in large numbers as voters ahead of the next elections. Governor Obado run on a PDP ticket, a party that has since joined Jubilee.
