Orange Democratic Movement ( ODM) Party leader Raila Odinga has stepped in to bring to an end political intolerance that has been witnessed in Migori County in the recent past. Raila who was on an impromptu visit to the county called on the gubernatorial hopefuls to campaign peacefully saying violence has no place in the current democratic space.
Odinga who chose to address his supporters in Dholuo told the aspirants that he will not forfeit his party’s popularity and majority win to shelve disgruntled elements of violence.
While advancing his six piece agenda he advised those who feel that the ODM party’s grass root exercise may not be free and fair to try other avenues.
Odinga’s move comes barely a week after Migori Senator Ochilllo Ayacko’s rally was disrupted by an unknown assailant who tear-gassed him while addressing a rally in Suna west.
Earlier, Migori County Secretary, Christopher Rusana who’s also determined to succeed governor Okoth Obado had his meeting messed up in a similar way while hosting elders from the suba clan.
Meanwhile, Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa has said ODM leader Raila Odinga is the most suitable leader to protect and strengthen devolution.
Addressing party supporters and officials drawn from Bungoma county who decamped to Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K), Wamalwa noted that devolution is what holds the key to an equal and just Kenya.
He rallied residents to join DAP-K and support the Azimio La Umoja Movement led by the former Prime Minister.
On his part, DAP-K party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi welcomed all defectors from Ford Kenya and UDA and urged locals to subscribe to DAP-K as it holds the key to western region and Raila as President.
