The ODM party has for a second time recommended another candidate for the position of Deputy Governor nominee for Nyamira County.
In a letter that was sent to Speaker Moffat Teya and Governor Amos Nyaribo on Monday, the party recommended Charles Rigoro to be Deputy Governor nominee.
“As communicated earlier in our letter dated January 20, signed by chairman John Mbadi, the party has recommended Charles Rigoro for the nomination to the position of deputy governor in line with an existing understanding with governor Amos Nyaribo,” read part of the letter.
The statement further states; the details of this understanding are well known by the parties and we expect that the terms hereof will be honoured.
When contacted, the ODM secretary-general verified the letter and said it is authentic.
The letter comes a second time as Governor Nyaribo maintains he will stick to his choice, Dr James Gesami for the position of Deputy Governor to the last minute.
The Deputy Governor nominee Dr James Gesami’s appointment was rejected by both the assembly’s appointment committee and the whole assembly earlier in February prompting Governor Nyaribo to hold several meetings with the MCAs, in a bid to convince the MCAs to approve his Deputy Governor nominee’s name.
The approval is yet to take place, since the debate on the approval that was supposed to happen on Friday never happened.
This means that Governor Nyaribo will still keep working without a Deputy Governor despite several efforts to try and convince the MCAs to approve the nominee for him, efforts that have gone futile.
Governor Nyaribo is however fully convinced that some political forces are behind his disappointments but maintains that he will keep on working for the people of Nyamira County saying those who want to frustrate him do not have the people of Nyamira at heart.
