Kwale, KENYA: Kwale County Governor Salim Mvurya has opposed six piece voting style in his county and instead advocated for voters to focus on the achievements of their leaders.
ODM party leader Raila Odinga, has been urging his supporters to vote for ODM candidates in all the six elective positions of president, governor, senator, women rep, MP and MCA.
Speaking at a women function in Mwavumbo, Kinango Sub county, Mvurya said that voting in a six piece manner, has deprived Kwale from getting the required development making the area languish in abject poverty.
“We are not electing a party, we should vote for somebody based on their development agenda,” he said.
Mvurya who is said to be planning to attend the Jubilee Party launch on Saturday, insisted he will defend his seat using a Jubilee ticket in the 2017 general elections.
Mvurya said there are forces within ODM that did not want him to clinch the the party ticket during nominations.
Already Kwale ODM officials have asked him to resign his position and seek fresh mandate from the electorate through a by election.
