In a move to resolve the in-house matters amicably, the Orange Democratic Movement party (ODM) has changed tact, dropping the push to Impeach Migori Governor Zachary Okoth Obado.
The position was reached to end the truce between the County head and the party leadership and to further quash the political dalliance between the governor and Deputy President William in the region.
Reports indicate that a sub-committee meeting of the ODM Central Management Committee resolved to end the stalemate that was threatening to paralyze the County leadership and service delivery to the people.
A further ultimatum was that Governor Obado to shape up and support the party in all its political undertakings in what appears to be eating a humble pie for the ever-defiant County chief who has always successfully swam against the political current.
“It was agreed that the motion be dropped to restore political stability in the county. He is expected to support the party fully in its activities,” said the source.
“The meeting resolved to invite the Members of the County Assembly for a meeting before the decision on the motion is made public,” the source added.
ODM party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna added that the main agenda of the meeting was a continued service delivery to the people of Migori, and to also ensure unity and harmony in the county assembly.
“A sub-committee of the ODM Central Management Committee has today met with the governor of Migori Okoth Obado, to discuss, among others, the need for continued service delivery by the county government under the prevailing circumstances, party unity and harmony in the assembly,” read the statement in part.
“The meeting agreed on the need for further engagement with other key stakeholders, including the County Assembly of Migori and the local ODM leadership.”
