Governor Ranguma Speaks:
Good morning, great people of Kisumu County. I have been getting many enquiries from concerned Kisumu residents, supporters, friends and those who have a stake and interest in Kisumu County following the confusion that has resulted from the party primaries especially on the gubernatorial contest.
I wish to assure you and everyone else that I SHALL be on the ballot on August 8th and that you will get another opportunity to express your popular will.
Right now I am engaging the party structures to uphold my landslide victory and am confident that as a democratic party, ODM will protect and respect the will of the people of Kisumu and their right to elect their popular candidate to represent them at whatever level of authority.
Meanwhile I wish to thank the people of Kisumu County for their continuous support and assure them that their will shall never be influenced by a few egocentric individuals who have chosen to misuse and abuse the party structures for their selfish interests and have totally disregarded the voice of the people.
Finally, I wish to commend the people of Kisumu for maintaining peace and I urge you to continue being calm as we wait for the party to resolve the standoff.
