Advocate Marwa Kerario has said he is a life member of the ODM party and said it was unfortunate that his rivals are tagging him as a Jubilee point-man in Migori.
Kerario said his rival, North Kadem MCA Boaz Okoth and MCAs supporting should pass by his office in Migori town and pick a copy of life membership.
“I saw him (Boaz) and his supporters on media saying I am a jubilee point man in Migori county. I am in my office fulltime as it will be my base to retain my victory, they free to pass by for membership copies,” he said.
Kerario told Migori News that after the Friday decision he respected the orders and he is “more than ready for the repeat elections.”
“My victory was stolen, and I will re-confirm that I won. My office will be my base to run my lobbying for 24 hours a day and seven times a week,” Kerario said.
The advocate said he is a resident of Migori county, professional lawyer and has skills to ensure devolution works in Migori county.
He said the speaker election will never take tribal angle or party affiliation, but a chance for MCAs to pick the best candidate for Migori.
“MCAs passed by party and tribal affiliations to vote for me in last elections before chaos broke out, they will confirm the same,” he said.
He challenged Boaz to concentrate on campaigning and lobbying instead of using propaganda.
On Friday Migori high court judge Hillary Chemitei ordered for fresh election for position of speaker and his deputy at Migori assembly after earlier august 31 election was marred by violence.
The election date set within 14 days saw election of Okoth as speaker and his North Kanyamkago counterpart George Omamba as the deputy being quashed.
Kerario filed the petition.
