A graphic posted on Facebook in Kenya quotes Nicholas Gumbo as saying there will only be democracy in the country’s Siaya county after Raila Odinga retires.

Odinga is the presidential candidate for the Azimio la Umoja coalition. It is pitted against deputy president William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza alliance in the Kenyan elections scheduled for 9 August 2022. 

Gumbo is running for governor in Siaya county, which is in the former Nyanza province in the country’s west. He served as a member of parliament for Rarieda constituency, one of six in the county, from 2008 to 2017.

Gumbo is in the Azimio alliance with Odinga, who commands a near-fanatical following in the county. He faces James Orengo, a close ally of Odinga. Orengo represents the county in the senate.
