Busia independent governor contender Paul Otuoma has now pledged to support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election bid set for next month.

The fresh presidential poll is set for October 17, a date that the opposition has declared “null and void” saying that they weren’t consulted.

Otuoma accused ODM and NASA leader Raila Odinga of favouritism in the party and alliance, complaining he favored his ODM opponent, now governor Sospeter Ojaamong in the governor race.

Addressing media in Funyula, the ex-MP lamented that he backed Raila in the last poll despite the ODM leaders bias against him.

Otuoma acrimoniously lost in the ODM primaries in his bid to unseat Ojaamong after which he ditched the party and sought the Busia governor’s seat on an independent ticket but lost to the incumbent in the August 8 poll.
