Ms Odhiambo mentioned the 1.5 billion Mbita-Rusinga Bridge launched last week by President Kenyatta in her constituency as one of the projects Mr Odinga played a role to initiate during his tenure as Prime Minister.

POLITICAL STORM

Mr Odinga is also set to calm a brewing storm as a result of tough political contests pitting ODM party candidates and independent candidates.

In the county, independent candidates seeking parliamentary and governorship positions are giving ODM party candidates a run for their money.

Mr Odinga has in past political campaigns in Siaya County called on the independent candidates in the region to shelve their ambitions and back ODM y candidates, a move which has been vehemently resisted by the independents.

The heads of the Nasa presidential campaign team in Nyanza and Homa Bay, Woman Rep Gladys Wanga and nominated MP Oburu Oginga have been traversing the region with the six-piece voting pattern campaign.
