Former Judiciary spokesman Dola Indidis has formally joined the race for the Bondo parliamentary seat ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
Declaring his entry into elective politics, Mr. Indidis said his decision was realized after a thorough soul searching and consultations with family members and friends, adding that he is strong and capable of serving his people, now that the incumbent Dr. Oburu Oginga has his eyes set on the Siaya County Senate post.
Indidis who has also served as police spokesman before switching to the judiciary where he served in the same capacity, expressed optimism that he is the right person that can lead Bondo constituency to much greater heights in terms of development.
He further extolled Finance Assistant Minister Dr. Oburu Oginga saying he had done a good job for the people of Bondo for the 19 years he has served as the area MP. Indidis hence challenged the people of Bondo to ensure they elect development conscious leaders who will keep the development track record moving.
Speaking in Bondo town where he declared his candidature, Mr. Indidis called on the youth to shun politicians who would want to misuse them to cause mayhem during the forthcoming general election campaigns.
He urged them to ensure they all acquire Identity cards which would enable them to make a democratic choice of good leadership which hence guaranteeing them a better future.
He also cautioned the youth and women against being compromised by handouts to elect leaders, arguing that such leaders would only go to fill their stomachs in return.
Other leaders who have also expressed interest in the Bondo seat include Central Organization of Trade Union (COTU) Treasurer Mr. Cornelius Agutu Nyang’un, a Commissioner of the Poverty Eradication Commission Mr. Wilson Ouma Onyango and the only woman aspirant for the seat Mrs. Judith Magundho of the Maendeleo Ya Wanawake.
