Other MPs like Mbita legislator Millie Odhiambo have also asked the party to be very cautious with the by-election since it is a litmus test for the party’s supremacy in the region.
Ford Kenya already has Kisumu West MP John Olago Aluoch who has said he will support their candidate for the by-election.
Olago admitted that CORD has a dilemma already between who to support as a coalition to prevent their opponents from winning.
He however said Nyando is so polarised because of the two rival camps that could give a third party an easy way to win the hearts of the electorate.
“If one emerges from the coalition, he would be the better option,” said Olago.
