“I never wanted to declare my political interest here today but because my father has reminded us, who am I not to show you direction. You are aware that next year people will declare interest in various positions and as a person who has worked in government, I will have clocked 50 years which allows me to resign,” said Owino.

According to Owino, his experience in the police service will give him a good chance of winning the seat.

The police spokesperson noted that he was aware that he will have many competitors including Senator James Orengo.

Former Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo who vied for the seat during the 2017 general elections and lost to Rasanga has also declared his interest to run for the seat.

Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, who has also been touted as a possible candidate for the county’s top seat has previously dismissed the claims.

Political pundits believe that should the county’s senator make real his intentions, his competitors stand no chance of clinching the much lucrative ODM party ticket.
