ODM national chairman and Suba South MP John Mbadi have said they are confident of getting enough numbers in the assembly to impeach Migori governor when motion will be table next week.
Mbadi, said they already have 31 ODM MCAs who have thrown their weight behind the motion sponsored by the party.
He was speaking at Maranatha grounds in Migori town when the party organised a meeting of over 600 delegates, elected and opinion leader to drum up support for the motion.
The delegates meeting was also attended by Migori senator Ochillo Ayacko, Nyatike MP Tom Odege, Rongo MP Paul Abuor, Nominated MP Dennitah Ghati and Uriri MP Mark Nyamita and several MCAs.
While the meeting was going on, Governor Okoth Obado chose to have special prayers at Lwanda Rapogi church in his area.
Mbadi said the impeachment motion on ODM governors charged with corruption and barred from office will start in Migori and roll over in other counties.
He said Obado’s counter, Busia’a Sospeter Ojaamong was not barred from office as the only other governor charged with corruption.
Ayacko said Bukira East MCA Mathews Chacha and Deputy Speaker and South Sakwa MCA Kevin Ouma and Majority Leader will lead the tabling and ensuring the motion passes through.
Ayacko said since devolution started in Migori, the county has received over Sh42bilion which is still hard to locate.
Odege said the governor have been vindictive against other leaders in Migori county.
Uriri MP Mark Nyamita, led seven out of eight MCAs from the constituency which is the backyard of Obado at the meeting to vow they will stand by the party.
