Former Police Spokesperson Charles Owino Quits ODM

Former Police Spokesperson Charles Owino has quit the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. 

On Tuesday, March 29, 2022, Owino joined the United Democratic Movement (UDM) Party where he will vie for the Siaya Gubernatorial seat.

Owino joined hands with former Rarieda Member of Parliament Nicholas Gumbo. 

The two have not yet clarified whether they will front one of the two as the main aspirant. However, reports have intimated that Owino will deputies Gumbo.

In March Owino officially joined ODM where he was received by the Chairperson of the ODM Alego-Usonga branch in Siaya town. 

He was also installed by a section of elders as an aspirant for the highly contested seat. Owino, who resigned from the public service in June 2021, noted that the move was a change from his career as a police officer which spanned nearly 30 years.
