Attention has been drawn to media reports alleging that the Homabay gubernatorial runner’s up, a one Oyugi Magwanga has moved to court challenging the win of Homabay Governor Cyprian Awiti.
In the dependable ODM stronghold that the NASA candidate Raila Odinga enjoys fanatical support, this is seen as a setback in his quest, noting that Governor Cyprian Awiti has been his pointman in the region and was high on preparations to lead a sweeping campaign for the former premier after the supreme court’s ruling.
Residents are left guessing the next turn of events after media reports indicated a secret meeting involving Hon. Gumbo, Hon. Magwanga and jubilee operatives within Nyanza province in a a bid to destabilize Hon. Raila’s foot soldiers and propagate in wars, hoping that Uhuru Kenyatta would wedge between and benefit from the fallout.
Reached for comment, the Communication Director, quite relaxed, had this to say
“Our attention has been drawn to a purported petition by handlers of Magwanga that we rigged them out in the last election.
Nothing can be further from the truth.
However still, we are prepared to face them in court. Our legal team has never disappointed because they’ve always had truth on their side. We are not going to allow Magwanga get to power through back door or uncouth means.
We are not surprised that this afterthought petition comes after Magwanga met Jubilee Pointmen in Nyanza to purpotedly show the picture of a double speaking Mr.Odinga and it’s also an open plot to destabilize Rt. Hon Raila’s stronghold politically, but we’ll beat them at their game.

Further probed about their legal representation, the youthful Director, Mr. Opande hinted at an duo of Snr Counsels Prof. Ojienda and Sen. Orengo.
