ODM officials in Migori County are now working together with the county government to formulate a team of 13 people that will spearhead the voter registration exercise in the county.

The team that was formulated on Tuesday after a daylong meeting between the county ODM officials and Migori County Government executives was chaired by ODM voter registration coordinator for Migori County, Mr George Mboya.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Mr Mboya said the team constituted by the two parties has come together for the sake of voter mobilization.

He noted that the unity between the ODM party officials and county government executives in voter mobilization is very instrumental in ensuring that people come out in large numbers to register as voters.

His sentiments were echoed by Migori County CEC in charge of Roads, Transport and Energy, Mr Moses Chamwada, who said that four top county officers would form part of the team that has already kicked off the exercise.

The first assignment of the team is to engage all ODM party incumbent political leaders and aspirants in the voter mobilization exercise.

Meanwhile, the team has called for an urgent meeting for all ODM leaders in Migori County ahead of the anticipated ODM party leader Raila Odinga’s visit to Migori scheduled for 19th January 2017.

Migori County ODM chairperson Mr Philip Makabongo said Mr Raila will have his first stopover at Sirare in Kuria West and then proceed to Wath Onger in Nyatike Sub County.
