Turkana County Gubernatorial Race: The race is likely going to be tough among these three Candidates

It is now crystal clear that we are remaining with less than seven months and the country will be conducting one of the highly expected general elections. Many politicians and other aspirants have already started to make early preparations to either retain their positions or clinch to new positions. In addition to that, we have candidates who have been working hard to recapture their positions.

In Turkana county, the race to succeed the outgoing governor Josphat Nanok who is serving his last constitutional term has been gaining momentum. The prestigious Turkana county governorship post has so far attracted the likes of the current Turkana County Assembly Speaker Erastus Lokaale, Turkana Central MP James Lomenen, Malachy Ekal, Petroleum CS John Munyes, former Senate Speaker Ekwee David Ethuro and Loima MP Jeremiah Lomurkai.

The race to succeed governor Josphat Nanok is likely going to be tough among the current County Assembly Speaker Erastus Lokaale, Ekwee David Ethuro and Petroleum CS John Munyes. All aspirants have already started to make inroads in the county to rally support from the voters.

The incumbent Turkana County Assembly Speaker Erastus Lokaale is a serious candidate in the race and he has been working closely with the outgoing governor Nanok. In addition to that, Erastus Lokaale is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto and his UDA party.

Petroleum and Mining Cabinet Secretary John Munyes has political experience because he once served as a Member of Parliament for Turkana North and the Senate of Turkana county. Munyes will be riding on his development projects as a Legislator and as a Senator.

Lastly, former Senate Speaker Ekwee David Ethuro cannot be counted out of the race to succeed governor Josphat Nanok. Previously, Ethuro had served as a Member of Parliament for Turkana Central Constituency from 1998 to 2013. In addition to that, Ekwee David Ethuro will boast on his political experience and impressive development records as a Member of Parliament.
