The Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party is holding its Kakamega County Convention today Monday, June 17th. This event marks the second in a series of grassroots mobilization efforts that commenced last week, highlighting the party's dedication to strengthening its presence and support at the local level.

Following the successful convention in Siaya County last Friday, which saw an impressive turnout of over 2,500 delegates, the Kakamega edition is anticipated to draw 3,000 delegates from all 60 wards of the county. 

This large gathering will play a crucial role in the election of branch officials who will spearhead the party's campaign efforts in the lead-up to the 2027 General Election. The participation of such a significant number of delegates underscores the growing momentum and enthusiasm for MDG’s vision and initiatives within the region.

Party Leader and Ugenya MP David Ochieng is scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the convention. His speech is expected to outline the party's strategic plans and vision for the future, aiming to galvanize support and inspire confidence among the delegates. 

Following the convention, Ochieng will lead a public rally in Kakamega Town, providing an opportunity for the local community to engage directly with the party leadership and express their concerns and aspirations.

This convention is part of MDG’s ambitious recruitment drive, targeting nine constituencies in Western Kenya during its first phase. The initiative aims to expand the party’s grassroots network, foster local leadership, and build a robust foundation for the 2027 General Election. By focusing on grassroots mobilization, MDG seeks to ensure that its policies and platforms resonate with the needs and aspirations of the local communities.
