The ODM party will not gamble or take chances with the Homa bay gubernatorial Seat if the Supreme court upholds the Court of Appeal’s decision to nullify Governor Cyprian Awiti’s election.
The party though chairman John Mbadi has said it will work hard to reclaim the seat if a by-election is called.
The chairman noted that defeat will be a disgrace to the party leader Raila Odinga and its entire leadership.
Awiti’s election win was successfully challenged in High Court by his rival and former Kasipul MP Oyugi Magwanga.
But Mbadi said subject to the outcome of the court, the party brigade will pinch tent in Homa Bay to ensure their candidate retains the seat.
“It will be very unfortunate to me as the party national chairman if the county where I also hail from is under a governor outside ODM,” Mbadi said.
Mbadi who was accompanied by Ndhiwa MP Martin Owino noted that rampant graft was tainting the image of the county and hampering its development agenda.
“We’re surprised with reports that most Homa Bay MCAs embroiled in squabbles because of graft in the county assembly,” Mbadi said adding that “ the party will not hesitate from taking action against the members who are tender-preneurs.”
