In Summary
  • The High Court last month nullified the election because rowdy youth disrupted the August 31, 2017 poll.

Migori MCAs will elect a new Speaker on Monday after the High Court last month nullified the election of Boaz Okoth.

Mr Okoth, who said he will run in the new poll, will face his former rival Mr Kerario Marwa.

SECURITY

They had both participated in the second round of voting on August 31, 2017, which was disrupted by rowdy youth.

Lobbying has intensified to win the vote of the 56 ward representatives with some being “kept” in Kisumu so as not to be influenced by an opponent.

Migori High Court Judge Hillary Chemitai directed police to provide security to protect the venue of the fresh elections and avert another possible disruption.
