Siaya governor Colonel Rasanga has announced his intentions of vying the Alego Usonga parliamentary seat after leaving office as governor. Rasanga became governor in 2013 and after serving in the office for two terms as required by the Constitution, he has to leave after the next general election.

The governor's decision comes a time when govrnors who have served their second term are looking for more political seats. Recently, Uasim Gishu governor Mandago had also publicly declares his intentions of vying the senatorial post in the fourth coming general election.
