The Bungoma County gubernatorial race is already ‘boiling’ up ten months before the August 2022 general elections.
The race is shaping up to a repeat of what happened in 2017, when Wangamati backed by Bungoma senator Moses Wetang’ula dislodged Lusaka from the County’s top seat.
Lusaka was elected Bungoma Governor in 2013, before failing to defend his seat against Wangamati in 2017. And now, Lusaka is back, reportedly backed by none other than Wetang’ula.
Governor Wangamati is not just sitting pretty.
Speaking in Sang’alo East on Saturday, he asked speaker Lusaka to prepare for a tough political duel as the clock ticks towards next year’s polls.
“My re-election bid will be backed up by development record and sound leadership I have demonstrated over the last four years through infrastructural development, scholarship program and other significant achievements in water, health, gender and agricultural sectors,” he said.
He challenged Lusaka to outline what he did for the people of Bungoma when he served as governor from 2013-2017.
