Azimio- One Kenya coalition Deputy Presidential candidate Martha Karua has drummed up support for Homa-Bay County gubernatorial candidate Gladys Wanga saying she had the ability to transform the county.
Karua said the election of Wanga will strengthen efforts to empower women and that her election will be historic as the first woman Governor from Nyanza region. She also told voters in Nyanza to turn up in large numbers and vote for Azimio one Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
Karua who toured Homa Bay town Wednesday appealed to voters to turn out 100 per cent and cast their ballot for Azimio one Kenya coalition candidates for all positions.
“I plead with the people of Nyanza not to let us down at the eleventh hour. Please ensure you cast all the votes. If you vote Raila, you have voted Karua and vice versa. Nyanza can make a very significant contribution to our victory on August 9,” Karua said.
She was hosted by Homa Bay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga, Azimio presidential campaign team Chairman in the region John Mbadi, Governor Cyprian Awiti, his Deputy Hamilton Orata, MPs Peter Kaluma (Homa Bay Town, Lilian Gogo (Rangwe), Adipo Okuome (Karachuonyo), Ong’ondo Were (Kasipul), Eve Obara (Kabondo Kasipul), Millie Odhiambo (Suba North) and Senator Moses Kajwang.
The ODM party gubernatorial aspirant assured Karua that they are going to undertake campaigns to ensure 100 per cent voter turnout.
“In Homa Bay, I assure you that we are going to work together as candidates of ODM to ensure everybody casts their vote,” Wanga said.
Also addressing the residents, Mbadi challenged the Kenya Kwanza coalition headed by Deputy President William Ruto to tell Kenyans what they have done to Kenyans before being voted for leadership of the country.
“Let Ruto not lie to us that he is not in the government. He should bear the blame on anything he feels the Jubilee government has failed to do,” Mbadi said.
