Orie Rogo Manduli's burial in Trans Nzoi County yesterday turned politically chaotic as the Kimini Member of Parliamet Chris Wamalwa took Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya head on, daring him to resign and face him off as residents watched in disbelief. The two leaders are eyeing Trans Nzoia Gubernatorial Seat in the coming Election.
“I am a member of Parliament for Kiminini and this is my second term in office. And because leadership is from God, I am asking for a promotion so that in 2022 I am elected the governor of Trans Nzoia,” Wamalwa said as Mourners clapped on adding that they are ready to deal with Eugune’s project once and for all.
Angered by Wamalwa's statements, Natembeya dared Wamalwa to step down from his position as MP and face him in the battle for the governorship.
“It is not right for you to have campaigned from 2017 but when fellow men step in the race, you begin acting up,” Natembeya fired back.
Natembeya further linked Wamalwa’s candidature to FORD Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula, claiming Wamalwa was freely handed the party’s ticket when vying for the MP’s seat.
