The Luo Council of Elders now has a new chairman after Mzee Odungi Randa was coronated as the 9th council of elders chairman. Odungi was elected as the chairman otherwise known as Ker by Luo elders from all over the Luo Nyanza counties to replace the late Mzee Willis Opiyo Otondi.

Mzee Odungi is from Kisumu county and will be deputized by James Ayanga who comes from Siaya county.

His coronation was attended by several leaders from Luo Nyanza led by Azimio leader Raila Odinga. The event was held at the Headquarters of Luo Council of Elders at Ofafa Jericho Memorial Hall in Kisumu.

Mzee Nyandiko Ongadi who has been leading an opposing faction of Luo elders had rejected the election of Odungi claiming that he is the legitimate council chairman. He even went to court to stop the election process of a new council chair saying the election was out of order as there was legitimate chairman.
