The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) flag bearer in the Busia Governorship contest this year, Dr Paul Otuoma has once again clearly demonstrated his affinity to Deputy President William Ruto by picking a Ruto diehard supporter, former Teso North legislator Arthur Odera as his running mate.

Odera’s first entry into elective politics was heavily financed by Mr Ruto through a nomination certificate from his now-defunct United Republican Party (URP), the party was eventually swallowed up by the Jubilee Alliance. Emerging facts clearly that after losing the seat in 2017 to his ODM rival Oki Kaunya, he was rewarded with a government job by the Deputy President.

Dr Otuoma together with his neighbour from Budalangi constituency Ababu Namwamba who was then the party’s Secretary-General moved to Ruto’s camp despite lengthy spirited interventions by party Leader Raila Odinga,” a senior retired politician from the county privy to the issue told The Weekly Vision

Dr Otuoma is also a beneficiary, having been appointed as chairman of a state corporation after he lost the elections to Busia County Governor Sospeter Ojaamong. He had contested as an Independent candidate having been heavily financed by Senator Amos Wako who had fallen out with Ojaamong over corruption allegations at the county.

“It is a matter of fact and not fiction that Dr Otuoma bolted out of ODM when he was the Party’s National Vice Chairmen. He together with his neighbour from Budalangi constituency Ababu Namwamba who was then the party’s Secretary-General moved to Ruto’s camp despite lengthy spirited interventions by party Leader Raila Odinga,” a senior retired politician from the county privy to the issue told The Weekly Vision. He added: “By picking Mr Odera as his running mate and possible Deputy Governor if they win, DP Ruto’s team will be in charge of the county affairs in Busia, a scary thought he said. They are even secretly campaigning for Ruto against Raila. 

“We are surrounded by the UDA/Kenya Kwanza alliance people because as things stand now even Dr Otuoma’s closest rival in the gubernatorial race John Bunyasi of ANC , is a Ruto man through Musalia Mudavadi.”-Whether Otuoma or Bunyasi wins, it’s William Ruto who will laugh to State House

At the moment the leader said that Ruto’s campaign in the county is led by none other than Dr Otuoma’s illicit girl-friend Suzan Mang’eni of UDA, she’s the Chief County Coordinator. She hails from the same constituency as Dr Otuoma. Dr Otuoma gave her a job as the National Youth Fund Chief Executive Officer when he was the Cabinet Minister for Sports in the late former President Mwai Kibaki regime. The leader said, “After losing the MP’s seat to the current Budalangi legislator Raphael Wanjala whom he had ousted earlier, Mr Namwamba through DP Ruto was rewarded with a plum job in the current government.

Mr Patricia Omuodo declared: “We are surrounded by the UDA/Kenya Kwanza alliance people because as things stand now even Dr Otuoma’s closest rival in the gubernatorial race John Bunyasi of ANC , is a Ruto man through Musalia Mudavadi.” Mr Omuodo said that as the county approaches the next general elections, whether Otuoma or Bunyasi wins, it’s William Ruto who will laugh to State House.  “We are also aware that Ruto’s men including Dr Otwoma are plotting to unleash a storm of financial support to help their course,” Mr  Omuodo said.

Mr Omuodo said that this leaves only two clean candidates, NAP-K candidate Dan Mogoria with his running mate from Butula and outgoing Deputy Governor Moses Mulomi on a DAP-K.
