Yesterday evening, elders from Suna East and West gathefed at Namba trading centre in the outskirts of Migori town to endorse Migori County secretary honourable Christopher Rusana as the next governor to succeed embattled Okoth Obado. Few minutes into the meeting, elders were forced to run when an unidentified man threw a teargas cannister in the middle of the meeting.
The elders who could not stand the unfriendly smoke fled to different directions from the meeting. They feared that more chaos could erupt. It took the intervention of the police to calm the situation.
Though Christopher Rusana has been one of governor Okoth Obado's closest allies, he has declared that he will vie on an ODM ticket. He distanced himself from Obado's People's Democratic party stating that he will ensure Raila get 98% of Migori votes.
Speaking on the incident, Rusana accused his competitors of hiring goons to disrupt his highly staked endorsement by elders.
Migori senator Ochilo Ayako, a top confidant and Raila's defender has also declared interest in Migori gubernatorial race.
