Funyula MP Paul Otuoma's uncle will not back him in the race to succeed Governor Sospeter Ojaamong. Mzee Ofafa Ojasi has said he will campaign for Ojaamong to get more than 20,000 votes in the constituency.
He spoke on Wednesday during a thanksgiving ceremony by Busia Speaker Bernard Wamalwa at his Bukiri home. Ojasi and Wamalwa, who is also Otuoma's close relative, said they will not support him as he did not consult the family.
"I am Otuoma's father...Wamalwa and I led him into politics. I am not afraid to say he will fall like Sigiri bridge," the uncle said. "I asked my son which formula he will use to win the elections but he did not have an answer. Butula, which was his stronghold, has also fallen."
