Governor Amoth Rasanga (with flowered Shirt) has officially declared interest in Alego Usonga Parliamentary Seat days after speculations. The second time governor is ready to face off with the current member of parliament Hon. Sam Atandi.
While declaring that he will be in the race, Rasanga stated that he will not back down on this despite numerous calls by the incumbent MP on him to retire from active politics peacefully.
“I am not going to stop my bid for the MP seat. I will traverse Alego/Usonga sub-County to sell my ideologies and policies to the people. It is time to bring in new leadership.
“They will see a different kind of politics when the right time comes. It is not going to be a walk in the park,” Rasanga said.
Sam Atandi however, warned the governor that he risks facing humiliation should he defeat him in the upcoming polls.
“I want to ask Rasanga to retire peacefully. The parliamentary seat that he is eying does not match him. If i defeat him, he shall be a laughing stock and would lose respect he has earned in the past" Atandi stated.
Rasanga's entry into the race will complicate things for the Orange Democratic Movement party considering that both of them are close allies of the former prime minister Raila Odinga and have been loyal to the party for many years.
