Famous BBI litigant, Aluochier bows out of Migori Senatorial race


Share post:

Isaac Aluochier has dropped his bid for Migori County Senatorial seat.

Mr Aluochier was one of the petitioners against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), and he became famous following his eloquent presentation during the court sessions.

He has now decided to seek for a Member of County Assembly position, instead.

“My eyes were set on the governor seat but the campaign requirements are very hectic. I was also not able to raise enough campaign funds in time,” Aluochier said.

He had cited his move to vie for the senatorial seat as something that would give Migori residents pride by having a senator with a record of defending human rights.

The MCA seat

But the orator has since settled on an MCA seat, where he feels the residents stand the best chance of benefiting from his representation and proper oversight of public funds.

“I have thrown my hat into the political ring to serve the people, and not just satisfy my ego. Consequently, as the cry of the voter is for effective oversight of their county executive and funds, I am inclined to seek to serve the residents of Migori County in the MCA office,” he said.

He noted that he has had a wide consultation on the matter and that he has decided to heed the calls of those who are for service to the people, who urged him to go for the East Kamagambo MCA position.

“I quit ODM because of chaotic and shambolic nominations. The party is just a democracy by name,” said the Masters Degree holder.
