Migori governor aspirant on Orange Democratic Movement ticket Robert Kenedy Okong’o has promised to overhaul political campaigns in the run-up to August 9 polls.
Okong’o has already paid up and is cleared to vie for ODM party candidature in the nominations exercise and has been confident among a crowded field.
Okong’o will face off with senator Ochillo Ayacko, Woman Representative Pamela Odhiambo and businessman Philip Mwabe for the party ticket.
“I will change the Migori governor campaigns and spin it on it’s head with direct benefit to voters,” Okong’o said.
The aspirant said he plans to organise a tag-of-war for youths in the boda boda sector and the winner will be given motorbikes.
Women through groups will also benefit from poshomills while for the first time beach management units will get boats.
The aspirant has been causing a buzz on the campaign trail with a orange painted boat which has been forming part of his caravan by being carried along on a canter.
“We have aspirants for governor seat who have held offices before but don’t have anything to show for it, we will first of all show them a peak of what we will do in this campaigns once we form the next government,” Okong’o said.
The said the campaigns and pledges will be done across the entire Migori 40 wards.
He was speaking at a social function in Muhuru Bay, ward, Nyatike constituency.
