Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka is keen on capturing the Bungoma County Gubernatorial seat in the August 9th general election.

Lusaka has finally revealed what prompted his decision to join Deputy President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party to propell his bid for governorship.

Lusaka has revealed how the current Bunggoma County Governor, Hon Otichilo, influenced his decision to join UDA to contest for the Governorship.

Speaking on K24 on Monday night, 4th July, Lusaka revealed that it would be an uphill task to run against the incumbent Governor in the August polls due to the wave in Bungoma.

He said that with out of 9 MPs, 7 being members of UDA, he looked at what was on the ground and he settled for DP Ruto's UDA.

"When it came to making a political decision, I looked at what was on the ground in Bungoma. Out of nine MPs, seven of them are in UDA. Having looked at the wave, it was going to be an uphill task to go against the current," Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka said.
