Jubilee gubernatorial candidate for Homabay who lost to ODM's Cyrian Awiti in the August 8 polls has strongly shown his allegiance to Jubilee Party days after his big loss.
Leading a group of Nyanza Jubilee Party leaders who unsuccessfully vied for different seats in solidifying the party in the region, Onyango asked their supporters to maintain peace as they wait for the Supreme Court to make a ruling in the case filed by NASA challenging Uhuru's win.
“Even though there is a court case which is set to deliberate on the issue, we are asking the people of Nyanza to be patient. As the Jubilee members from Nyanza region we are asking our people to wait for the verdict and to maintain peace in the region,” said Onyango.
Onyango, who spoke on Thursday, August 24,during a strategy meeting in Kisumu added that they will fully support Uhuru Kenyatta to the end despite losing in the polls.
The politician also used the opportunity to appeal to Uhuru's not to forget the Nyanza region in his development plans despite the region having overwhelmingly voted for Raila.
“All Nyanza people need to be considered too because they pay taxes, the President belongs to all of us,” he added.
The move comes as a surprise to many who have always believed that Nyanza is a NASA stronghold and Raila's backyard.
