The Marachi West MCA seat has so far attracted several aspirants on various political parties, one of them is businessman Edgar Ignatius Otieno alias (Otoyo Jr) from Bujumba Village. Otoyo Jr. is seeking to beat incumbent MCA John Oganga in the August election.

Mr Oganga has come under heavy criticism from voters who say that he lacks leadership skills to effectively manage the affairs, having failed to initiate any development projects in Marachi West.

Mr Otoyo Jr. Is a well-known businessman with bases in Nairobi and Busia town, he says that if given the chance to serve as an MCA, he will give priority to education, security, infrastructure and initiate programs to empower young people to earn an honest living. He says that he is the best suited to take the Ward forward in terms of development and asked voters to elect him as the next MCA of Marachi West in Busia County during the coming polls. He intends to run on the ODM party ticket.

Otoyo Jr. adds that in consultation with the county government, he will make sure that farmers receive quality seeds for a healthy crop to enable ‘our small-scale farmers increase their productivity, and access markets for their produce

He adds that in consultation with the county government, he will make sure that farmers receive quality seeds for a healthy crop to enable ‘our small-scale farmers increase their productivity, and access markets for their produce. Proving tractors to plough the land as the county administration has been doing is very good but not enough; we need to train our farmers in modern farming methods and practices and proper crop management products such as fertilizers.

On health, he says that there is an increasing awareness among the people that good and quality health facilities are key in keeping common diseases at bay, as such we shall work closely with the county government’s department of health to upgrade clinics within my area of jurisdiction.

We shall also work to improve the welfare of the youth and elderly. For the youth, the main problem is the lack of jobs and as such I will try to seek funds for them to open small businesses so that they become self-employed. We shall make sure that the elderly get access to NHIF cards so that they are not financially overburdened in case of sickness.

On access roads within the Ward, I will lobby the county government to improve the roads running from Bumala-Bujumba to Bukhwaku/ Bumala- Nyatsenge to Burinda/ Buriya- Busebula and Burinda to Nango as soon as I assume office as MCA. We shall also work with the county government and the donor community to sink more boreholes so that our people get safe and quality drinking water.
