The Busia gubernatorial seat has taken new twist with less than nine months remaining to the general elections.
More than six candidates are eyeing the top seat to replace Governor Sospeter Ojaamong as the second governor of Busia county.
The county boardering Uganda is a stronghold of ODM party. It is made up of two main linguistic group,the Teso and Luhyas who are the majority.
Earlier on,the governor had publicly endorsed Mulomi as his preferred successor. However, while speaking in Teso yesterday in Kwangamor village.
The governor seemed to have changed his mind where he said the party should give Mutua a direct nomination because of her faithfulness to the party.
"We need to have free, fair and credible party nominations ahead of 2022 elections.However,we shall make consideration to members whose loyalty to the party has been unwavering,"said the county boss .
Mr. Mulomi on his side downplayed the claims saying he could not trust information coming from the media. He believes Ojaamong will rally behind his bid to succeed him as the next Busia governor.
