Governor Okoth Obado's decision to become involved in the politics of Deputy President Dr. William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has sparked divisions among the party's supporters in Migori County.
Governor Obado has been slammed by Kuria West MP Mathias Robi, who claims he is undermining the UDA and that he is sponsoring candidates to tarnish the UDA's image.
"We have many UDA candidates in the Luo Nyanza area, and we are having difficulty preparing our nominations because of our political interference with the PDP," MP Kuria said.
Migori County gubernatorial 2022 aspirant Jane Moronge claimed that during the Deputy President's recent visit to the area, Mr Obado oversaw all activities and that they, as UDA members, were not involved.
As political tensions between the UDA and the PDP continue, Migori Deputy Governor Mwita Mahanga has urged residents of the county to continue supporting the ODM party and its leader Raila Odinga's politics.
