‘Kwamboka’ went ahead asking Kisii residents to elect his husband Arati as their next governor. The crowd went wild as she addressed them in their local language.
Arati will face Kisii Senator Prof Sam Ongeri for the ODM gubernatorial ticket. The two legislators are seeking to replace James Ongwae whose term comes to a tumultuous halt after exhausting his constitutional threshold of two terms.
