Former police spokesperson Charles Owino has picked former Gem MP Jakoyo Midowo's wife as his running mate ahead of the 2022 general election.

Owino who has been in Siaya since resigning as the police spokesperson picked Rose Midiwo as his running mate in his quest to lead Siaya County come next year.

Owino said that he opted to pick Rose because he had promised residents that he would appoint a woman as a running mate.

“I have decided to pick Rose as my running mate and we have agreed to work together,” Owino said.

The move by Owino to chose Rose as his running mate was welcomed by the la`te Midiwo's brother Jalang'o Midiwo who assured Owino of their support.

Jalang'o who was perceived to be also eyeing the gubernatorial seat said that he will support Owino as he also look forward to to clinch the Gem Constituency seat.

Jalang'o is said to have switched his allegiance to work with Owino after the current Gem MP Elisha Odhiambo declared his support for Siaya Senator James Orengo for the gubernatorial seat.
