Former Police Spokesperson Charles Owino Lands New Job After Withdrawing From Siaya Governor Race

Former police spokesperson Charles Owino has landed another job after withdrawing his candidature in the Siaya governor race.

Owino has called off his candidature as the running mate of Nicholas Gumbo in the Siaya governor’s race.

Owino joined the United Democratic Movement (UDM) Party after he ditched Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).

UDM has confirmed the resignation of Owino from the party and accepted it.

“UDM Party has received and accepted Charles Owino’s withdrawal as the running mate of Nicholas Gumbo in the Siaya gubernatorial contest,” the party's Secretary-General of UDM, David Ohito, told The Standard.

New job offer

The Standard reports that Owino has been given another job in the police service. Even though it is in the public domain that Owino resigned from the police service, police have said he did not officially resign and that he is still available for deployment.

He will serve police service as the Director of the Kenya National Focal Point on Small Arms and Light Weapons.
