The former Suna East MP said that some of his rivals who had sensed defeat had decided to spread the rumours so as to derail him from his quest to succeed Migori Governor Okoth Obado who will be completing his second and final term in office after the general election.

Pesa who is popularly known as Mwalimu by his supporters has been combing the villages and local markets in town hall-style meetings that has seen him well placed to stage a possible upset in the Tuesday vote to the surprise of his competitors who have been forced to the drawing board.

“My opponents have found out that I am the candidate to beat in the Migori Governorship contest that is why they are sponsoring rumours to the effect that I have stepped down, how can I do that yet I am the leading candidate in this race,” wondered Pesa.

 The former MP asked his worthy competitors to prepare for a grueling contest since he has been campaigning for the last five years and that instead of peddling rumours they should sell their agenda for the people if they get elected to office instead of dwelling on him.
