Hodo said he took his decision after a serious soul searching.

Hodo’s move, as he is a Luhya from Kuria West, opened a leeway for Oketch for hunt for Kuria votes.

But according to IEBC officials who are preparing for the election slotted for next Monday, October 8, Hodo’s name will not be removed from the ballot papers which have already been printed.
