Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo has refuted claims that he will support Governor Cornel Rasanga's re-election bid in August.
Reacting to a story published in a local daily, Mr Midiwo maintained that he would never support Mr Rasanga.
Midiwo said he had not reconciled with the governor regarding their political differences.
"Those peddling rumours that I have reconciled with Rasanga are daydreamers. I do not agree with the governor's style of leadership and I do not plan to back his gubernatorial bid," he said.
Speaking in Gem sub-county, the MP said he had made a declaration to support either Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo or Rasanga's competitor in 2013, William Oduol, for the governor's seat.
He however admitted having met with Rasanga at a family gathering held at the home of Siaya County Public Service Board chairman Joe Donde.
