Trans Nzoia county gubernatorial race has narrowed down to a fierce battle between Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance. Leading the Azimio brigade is former Rift Valley region coordinator George Natembeya whereas Kiminini Member of Parliament Dr Chris Wamalwa is leading the Kenya Kwanza faction.
The Kenya Kwanza faction agreed to support Dr Chris Wamalwa and send packing a number of UDA aspirants who had declared interest in the gubernatorial seat.
Today, the Kenya Kwanza team has suffered a huge loss after the four former UDA gubernatorial aspirants officially decamped from the hustler team and joined Mr Natembeya who is vying on a Democratic Action party ticket.
The four include honourable Philemon Samoei, Teresa Metro Sogony, Honourable Julian Kichwen and honourable Mutahi. Addressing the media in company of Natembeya, the four declared support for Azimio and declared political war on Kenya Kwanza's Dr Chris Wamalwa.
On his part, Natembeya said that it was a great honour receiving the four who had agreed to down their bids in his favor.
Natembeya who is being supported by defence cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa has also secured the backing of the Bukusu council elders who have officially named him the Community's flag bearer.
