Masaba MCA Abed Maroa who is the Kuria West sub-county ODM chairman said Machage has written his own political obituary through the statement which will be read as euology in 2017 when Kuria voters help bury his political career.
Masaba said Machage was an opportunist who used Kuria people to get his position in last polls without campaigning for ODM or Cord leader Raila Odinga in last polls.
“For four years when he was elected Machage has never organised any ODM meeting in Kuria and Migori giving us a bad name in Migori. He is an absentee senator,” Maroa said
Kuria West MP aspirant Matiko Bohoko and senate aspirant in 2013 John Magaiwa said Machage poor leadership saw him skip last Friday Cord rally for Suna East MP Junet Mohammed homecoming.
“His seat was handed over to him that is why he never bothered to come to the ground, he thinks he will have the same in 2017 which will never happen,” Bohoko said.
Magaiwa said: “His statement is personal, and let Machage know that if he leaves other able Kuria leaders will pick up after him.”
The three were addressing Migori News at Lake Junction Hotel in Migori town today where they said the community is in ODM to stay.
