Bungoma Governor Lusaka Breaks Silence As He Asks Kenyans To Remain Calm

Newly elected Bungoma senator Kenneth Lusaka has taken to social media to urge Kenyans to stay calm as they await the results of the presidential elections.

Lusaka also implored Kenyans to resist any form of provocation that could lead to a breakdown of law and order. "As the nation awaits the IEBC to announce the 2022 Presidential election results, let us promote peace and harmony at all times," he added.

Kenyans reacted variedly to the statement by Lusaka, as seen below.

According to Elijah Mogoi Karanja, the statement seems to be provocative. "Kenyans are moving on with their lives," added Karanja.

On his part, Mwalimu Ken wondered what calm leaders were talking about. To him, Kenyans are going on with their businesses as usual. The ongoing struggle, he says, is for those with political interests.

Lusaka overwhelmingly won the gubernatorial race against incumbent Wycliffe Wangamati. Vying on a Ford Kenya ticket, the former senate speaker garnered 244,298 votes, flooring Wycliffe Wangamati (DAP-K), who bagged 137,378 votes.

The governor, who held the position from 2013 to 2017, said he had come to finish what he had started as he accepted his certificate.
