The former cabinet secretary for sport Rashid Echesa openly told the Kakamega Governor Wycliff Oparanya that as western region, they were eagerly waiting for his endorsement as the ODM presidential candidate because he was qualified for that.
Echesa proceeded to add that they were not going to listen to other stories and told Oparanya not to be convinced otherwise. He went on to say that a time had come for the region to take the top leadership and when he looked around, the Governor had all that it took for him to succeed president Uhuru.
The outspoken leader also said that if Oparanya missed out on the big seat of presidency, as region they were ready and comfortable if he became a prime minister. Echesa reiterated that he was serious and so was the many leaders from the mulembe nation.
This time round politics was going to be played differently in the region and warned that before thinking of supporting other leaders, they were first going to give priority to their own leaders, Echesa noted.
