ODM leader Raila Odinga has called on voters in his Nyanza backyard to adopt the six-piece mode of voting in what he termed as an effort to enhance the formation of a stable government if he is elected president on the August 9, 2022, General Election.
The methodology requires voters to elect only ODM candidates in all six positions which will be voted in every county during the General Election. The positions are MCA, MP, Woman Rep, Senator, Governor and President.
Odinga who spoke at Nyasore Village in Rachuonyo East Sub County during the burial of the late Ambassador of Kenya to Qatar Paddy Ahenda says it is the six-piece mode of voting that will ensure he forms a stable government.
He further told the Luo community and Nyanza residents to be united and form a formidable force that will propel his journey to State House.
The ODM leader argued that there is nothing much that the people of Nyanza could achieve if they are not united.
He castigated leaders who are dividing the Luo community on the bases of South Nyanza comprising Homa Bay and Migori counties and Central Nyanza comprising Siaya and Kisumu counties.
Odinga was flanked by governors Cyprian Awiti (Homa Bay), Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), James Ongwae (Kisii), Senator Moses Kajwang’, MPs Gladys Wanga (Homa Bay), Lilian Gogo (Rangwe), Ong’ondo Were (Kasipul), Eve Obara (Kabondo Kasipul), Martin Owino (Ndhiwa), Babu Owino (Embakasi East) among other legislators.
Oparanya says they are undertaking a lot of campaigns in the Western region to ensure Raila gets more votes from the region.
His Kisii counterpart James Ongwae challenged leaders in the Nyanza region to mobilize voters to ensure they vote for Raila.
