Natembeya Reveals What Party He Will Join In His Trans-Nzoia Gubernatorial Race

The Trans-Nzoia gubernatorial election has drawn a number of candidates and is expected to be a close contest, with candidates eager to succeed Governor David Khaemba, who is spending his second and final term in office. Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa, Trans-Nzoia Woman Representative Janet Nangabo, Abraham Sing'oei and Maurice Bissau, who both occupy different posts at DP Ruto's office, are among those who have already announced their candidacies.

Natembeya is counting on his "successful" career in the interior ministry, where he was at the vanguard of combating crime and conflicts in the volatile areas of the enormous Rift Valley regions plagued by banditry, livestock rustling, and ethnic strife.

George Natembeya, the outgoing Rift Valley Regional Commissioner, says he will run for the Trans-Nzoia gubernatorial seat with the party sponsored by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Natembeya told Capital FM News that President Kenyatta is responsible for his achievements and that he cannot afford to abandon him.

Despite the Democratic Action Party of Kenya's (DAP-K) recent endorsement, which indicated that the determined administrator was their Trans Nzoia gubernatorial candidate in the August elections, Natembeya has yet to openly announce which political party he will be running under. Defense Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa is linked to DAP-K.

However, Natembeya has been accused of being a state-sponsored initiative endorsed by CS Wamalwa by his opponents. He has, however, disputed the allegations, stating that "I am a Trans-Nzoia County initiative."
