KNC, JP, ODM make pitches to Kisii voters
Nyacheki MCA seat fell vacant 4 months ago after the death of MCA Peter Nyaega
ODM, Kenya National Congress and the Jubilee Party leaders have stepped up campaigns for their candidates in Nyacheki ward, Kisii county, ahead of tomorrow’s by-election.
The seat fell vacant four months ago following the death of MCA Peter Nyaega.
On Sunday, JP, led by Deputy Governor Joash Maangi and Senator Chris Obure, urged residents to elect Maxwell Magoma. They said he can easily work with the Jubilee administration to develop the area.
“I urge you to turn up in large numbers on Wednesday and vote in Magoma. He stands a better chance to bring development projects to the area,” Maangi said.
Obure said the time has come for residents to make an informed decision either to be in government or in the opposition. “You must consider where you will reap more. I am optimistic you will vote in Magoma,” he said. KNC, led by South Mugirango MP Manson Nyamweya, urged residents to vote for Caleb Ong’uti. He said those vying on the ODM and JP tickets have nothing to offer. “They have been there and nothing tangible can be seen,” he said.
Nyamweya accused Jubilee of “using Eurobond money” to woo residents to vote for its candidate.
ODM, led by Suba MP John Mbadi, Kisumu Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o, nominated Senator Janet Ong’era, Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama and Homa Bay woman representative Gladys Wanga, campaigned for Naftali Onkoba. “He will work with the county government, which is led by ODM,” Mbadi said.
The ward has 10,000 registered voters in 23 polling stations.
