Orengo endorsed for 2022 top job

Orengo has earned admiration for his legal and political skills in defending Raila

The Star on Thursday reported several stakeholders in Siaya, calling upon Orengo to take up the County top job after the end of incumbent Cornel Rasanga’s second and final term.

Orengo, who is in his second term as Senator has won admiration of his constituents over his passionate role in national politics.

The Siaya Senator had been expected to run for Governor in the August 8 elections, but later shelved his plans reportedly after being persuaded by his Party Leader Raila Odinga.

The veteran lawyer has played a critical role in fine-tuning Odinga’s political and legal strategies.

“Even as we speak now, some MPs have already lost their seats come 2022, because of their demeanor towards Raila’s journey to Canaan,” Alex Ouma, a resident in Siaya remarked.

Another resident, Milkah Oduor, stated that Orengo should team up with Rarieda MP, who is also Odinga’s lawyer, Otiende Amollo in the 2022 race.

“I would wish that in 2022, Otiende goes for senator as Orengo becomes our governor,” Oduor stated.

In the August election, the Siaya Senator only campaigned once, did not print any posters, but went on to win with 98 percent of the vote.
