VIDEO: Gachagua Officially Welcomes ODM's Nyanza Ex-governor Into UDA Party

The deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua, on Thursday welcomed one of the Nyanza Ex-governor into the United Democratic Party (UDA). Migori county's first governer, Okoth Obado, officially decamped from Raila's ODM party and joined the ruling UDA party. This happened during the UDA party leadership meeting which was headed by the deputy president who also acts as the party's deputy leader.

Ex-governor Okoth Obado was one of the Nyanza leaders who championed for president William Ruto's presidency during the 2022 general election. Despite of being elected through the ODM party ticket in his second term as the Migori governer, Obado went against the ODM wave in the Nyaza region by campaigning for the UDA presidential candidate instead of the ODM candidate in the 2022 general elections.

Meanwhile, UDA party officials have praised the Migori ex-governor for his determination for supporting them. The party officials promised to work with Obado in propelling the party's agenda within the Nyanza region ahead of the 2027 general elections.
