Disputes between TangaTanga and Kieleweke teams in Jubilee are depicted in the impeachment process on Migori Governor Okoth Obado.


Already, officials and MCAs, three elected and two nominated have declined requests to maintain the impeachment proposed by ODM.


“We have been forced by the party as it decided that we should support the impeachment of Obado. We take that order as from Kieleweke faction. We in Tangatanga are standing with Obado and Deputy President William Ruto,” Joseph Hoyo, Makerero MCA, said.


Last Monday, ODM directed for the impeachment of Obado after he was charged with fraud alongside his four children and proxies. He is accused of stealing Sh73.4 million county funds.


The impeachment currently has transformed into a Raila Odinga versus Ruto concern ahead of the 2022 General Election.


MCA Hoyo said it was open that Jubilee is already divided between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, Ruto, noting that the same which will play out in the support or rejection of the motion.


“We have two Jubilee sets in Migori. We are proud to say we are allied to Ruto and we will vote to support Obado in and out of the assembly by any means possible and necessary at our disposal,” Hoyo said.


Hoyo said they were aware of a directive from Jubilee secretary general Raphael Tuju to support the impeachment motion, but said those allied to Ruto will ignore it.


“We heard of a directive of how we should vote. We are hereby saying it will be ignored and let it be known we are supporting Ruto,” Hoyo said.
