With the clock now ticking towards the August 9 general election, the battle between Korane and Jama is on the cards with the two bitter rivals set for a rematch of their bruising 2017 battle.

For the five years he spent in the cold, Jama is back more fresh and energized, ready to reclaim the seat he held for some five years.

Now up against Jama, a new Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga right-hand man, Korane has decided to stick with Jubilee Party as the former county boss flies the ODM party flag.
