In Summary

  • Dr.Ochilo has since declared his interest in the Migori Senatorial seat.
  • The Appeal Court was scheduled to give its verdict on the case on July 29, 2018.
  • Raila Odinga had chastised the two leaders over the tussle.

Ochilo Ayacko has withdrawn the case he had filled at the Appellate Court against Migori Governor Okoth Obado that challenged his victory.

Speaking to Radio Ramogi, Dr. Ayacko said the move was in response to ODM leader Raila Odinga’s recent plea.

During the burial of the late Senator Ben Oluoch Okelo, Odinga urged Dr. Ayacko to withdraw the case and call a truce with Obado.

“I am loyal to Raila Odinga and could not turn down his call for the withdrawal of the case,” he said during the interview on Wednesday.

The Appeal Court was scheduled to give its verdict on the case on July 29, 2018.

Odinga had lamented that Migori County has been in turmoil ever since the 2017 election period ended and chastised the two leaders over the tussle.

However, in a twist of events, Dr. Ochilo and Governor Obado shook hands at the burial at Kanyimach village, putting an end to their political bigotry.

Meanwhile, Dr.Ochilo has declared his interest in the Migori Senatorial seat.

Other aspirants who followed suit include Mr. Samwel Orwa Jasolo, an official of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) in Migori; Mr. Willis Okelo and Mr. Mark Okundi.

Mr. Okelo is the son to the late Ben Oluoch while Mr. Okundi is a nephew.
