Orengo, who is a close ally of ODM party leader Raila Odinga, said majority of Siaya people will still seek political direction from him.

Speaking on Thursday during the World Aids Day celebrations in Bondo sub-county, Orengo said he was ready to work with the government, but not in submission.

"Declaring to work with the government of the day is not news and those purporting to support the government in order to get development projects should understand what the Constitution says," said the county boss.
