Leo Nyabaya is the latest youthful aspirant to show his interest in joining other potential candidates as he has said that he will vie for the same post come 2022 general election.
Mr. Nyabaya yesterday announced he is set for a face-off with other potential aspirants come the general election.
"I have consulted my people and resolved to go for it," said Mr. Nyabaya
Leo joins the already congested list of candidates vying for the slot which includes Tonny Ogola, Steve Oyugi, Ogutu William Ochieng, and probably the incumbent MCA who would wish to defend his post come the election day.
He says it’s the urgent need for reforms that will empower, women, Youths, people living with disabilities, and the ordinary mwananchi that informed his decision to join the race.
“We might not have been having devolution long enough, but we have been around too long to know what devolution can do to our people when we have focused and visionary leaders in leadership positions.,” said the youthful politician.
The entrance of the youthful aspirant in the race to represent Ukwala ward in the Siaya County Assembly coming elections 2022 seems to have complicated the race.
This will now force some of the other politicians who have shown interest in the race to go back to the drawing board and get ways of convincing the voters who are majorly youths who are now yearning for the change of guard.
Nyabaya a teacher by profession is believed to be vocal, something that resonates well with most of the youths who understand he has a strong debating power and vibrant ideas is now among newcomers to be watched closely in the coming general election.
He said that he believes that youths should be empowered to make use of available resources to make a turnaround in their lives rather than being promised heaven on earth by rogue politicians whom he describes to be brokers.
" As a youth, I believe that when we have visionary leaders, our youths will not continue suffering, as most of them are jobless even after graduating. Leaders need to make use of available resources to make a turnaround in their lives rather than being promised heaven on earth by rogue politicians," said Nyabaya.
