To keep their political journey alive, many governors across the country have shown their interest in other political positions after their last term. The list below is of the governors who have made clear their intentions to vie for other political positions after their last gubernatorial term. These governors will either be going for their county's senate or their selected constituencies.
1.Governor Cornel Rasanga
The Siaya governor will be completing his second and last term come August this year. In September, Rasanga declared interest in Alego Usonga Parliamentary list.
