Senate Speaker drops his former DG and picks his Ex- gender adviser as his running mate

Today the senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka has officially unveiled his running mate in the Bungoma gubernatorial race.

Speaker Lusaka officially named his former gender adviser Jennifer Chemtai as his running mate. Lusaka announced this today at his official campaign centre in Bungoma county.

Madam Jennifer Chemtai served as a gender adviser to Kenneth Lusaka during his tenure as the first governor of Bungoma county.

Speaker Kenneth Lusaka praised Madam Jennifer Chemtai for being a peace ambassador and a passionate for gender equality in the county. Jennifer Chemtai is also a pastor and motivational speaker on gender related issues.

Madam Jennifer Chemtai emerged the winner after a series of interviews with five men participants. She trounced down the former Bungoma deputy governor Hillary Chongwony.

Hillary Chongwony served as the first deputy governor of Bungoma county. He deputized the then Bungoma governor Kenneth Lusaka before losing the seat in 2017 polls.

Four out of the five deputy governor candidates accepted the outcome and promised to rally behind Madam Jennifer Chemtai. They also promised to rally their supporters behind Kenneth Lusaka gubernatorial bid.

Speaker Kenneth Lusaka is keen on recapturing the gubernatorial seat he lost in 2017 polls on a FORD Kenya party ticket. He will face off with incumbent governor Wycliffe Wangamati who is seeking reelection on a DAP-K party ticket.

Several leaders from Bungoma county attended the Kenneth Lusaka running mate unveiling in Bungoma town. They included Webuye West legislator Dan Wanyama and Bungoma majority leader.
