Tension continues to rise in parts of Rangwe constituency, Homa Bay county as police search for parliamentary candidate from the area.

Ezra Odhiambo of Green Congress of Kenya (GCK) party went missing last weekend and his whereabouts remain unknown to friends and family members.

Supporters of the candidate have asked police to speed up investigations, saying he could have been abducted so as to miss the August 8 election. Homa Bay OCPD Esau Ochorokodi asked supporters to be calm and to stop jumping to conclusions as police were investigating the matter.

“We have established that his phone is ringing but no one is picking it up. We are now considering tracing the location of the phone,”he said. Other candidates contesting for the seat include the incumbent MP George Oner (independent) and Lilian Gogo (ODM).
