According to the elders coronation can only done once according to the Luo traditions and they are now questioning the authenticity of the expected governor Obado endorsement by Nyatike elders.
The elders said blessing can only be given once adding that they have prayed for curses for anyone who shall be coroneted as gubernatorial aspirants in the land of Nyatike
They faulted Obado’s coronation saying it was a mere endorsement and nobody can be an elder of “Nyatike” which is not a tribe or clan.
The event was presided over by Luo council of elders’ national treasurer Abel Owuor.
“Obado’s coronation was a hoax, he bought everything including the skin and spear to be coronated as a political mileage,” Owuor said.
In her remarks, the aspirant Anne Anyanga said she now has the blessing of the elders and the church.
