Migori county secretary Christopher Rusana has said he is ready to resign by February 9 to be the next governor after his boss Okoth Obado.

Rusana said that he is ready to resign and allayed fears that he won’t be in the ballot on August 9.

On January 19, Edward Kabaka, a chief officer on behalf of County Secretary Christopher Rusana wrote to public servants seeking to vie in the next polls through departments to leave the office and resign on or before February 9 according to law.

Section 43 of the Elections Act, 2011 calls on any “public officer who intends to contest as election under this Act shall resign from public office at least six months before the date of elections,”

“This is to give a general notice to all members of staff who would wish to participate in the forthcoming general elections to submit their resignation letters to their respective authorized officers,” part of the letter read.

Speaking to Migori News in Migori town, Rusana said currently there is a court case over the date, but he was prepared to resign.

“There is a court pronouncement for that matter, but we will be in the office awaiting court decision for the matter,” he said.

He said while he worked under Obado, they ensured road networks across the county have been smooth compared to other counties.

“We have serious networks in the county, we have opened up access to every part of this county,” he said.

He said the county has also sunk so many boreholes in the area and the Migori County Referral Hospital has been transformed with a boost in infrastructure development.

“We have also built the capacity for service delivery for our staff especially in health services, doctors and nurses more than any other counties,” Rusana said.
