Just like in a presidential contest, numbers are also important in any gubernatorial. This means that anyone seeking to be governor must have a well calculated move on how to get as many voters as possible to their camp.
Kidero who hails from Rangwe constituency must ensure he picks a deputy from a densely populated constituency. This means that he must pick a deputy from either Ndhiwa constituency or from any other constituency within the greater Rachuonyo region.
If he picks the former Kasipul constituency member of parliament Hon. Joseph Oyugi Magwanga, he could easily easily win the gubernatorial race. Magwanga has a huge following in Homa Bay politics and could help Kidero divert more votes to his camp.Photo: Hon. Joseph Oyugi Magwanga.
In 2017, Joseph Oyugi Magwanga contested against Cyprian Awiti and came second with over 48 percent of the total votes cast. This proves how his influence is still strong in Homa Bay politics and whoever sides with him could easily win.
When he was a member of parliament, Oyugi Magwanga was voted as the best member of parliament in Kenya in terms of Constituency Development Fund (CDF) utilisation. This means that the people could still trust him.
Oyugi Magwanga could also help Evans Kidero to secure the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ticket during the party primaries scheduled for early next year. Securing ODM ticket in Homa Bay county is a great advantage to any candidate since it is the most influential party in the region.Kidero will be going head-on with other candidates like the current woman representative Gladys Wanga and Suba South constituency member of parliament John Mbadi.
