THE 2017 GENERAL ELECTIONS
The electioneering process has started in earnest and already prospective candidates have commenced on marketing themselves for various positions. As regards Hon. Dr. Ottichilo’s position on the same, there has been increased public demand and pressure on him to go for the position of governorship in 2017. Through extensive consultation with stakeholders across the County, he has come to the conclusions that come 2017; he will be vying for the position of the Governor. The position of the Governor requires a person with leadership and extensive managerial experience and qualifications. His record is clear on these two virtues. And therefore he believes that if the people of Vihiga County agree to elect him as the next Governor, he will work collaboratively with them to transform the County in the shortest period in terms of socio-economic development. Therefore, at the appropriate time he will be requiring the support of those who believe in actual transformation of our County. If elected, his first agenda will be to unite the three sub-clans to work as a team and focus on human capital development in the county devoid of parochial bias. He strongly believes that no real development can take place if people are polarized or divided hence the need to give priority to the unity of the people of Sabatia, Vihiga, Hamisi, Luanda and Emuhaya constituencies as one family and to involve all the elected leaders and opinion leaders in the planning and implementation of development programmes and projects
