"I Am The Best Choice To Succeed Governor Oparanya" Says Professor Kutima

Deputy Governor H.E Prof Philip Kutima has said he is the best bet to succeed Governor H.E Dr Wycliffe Oparanya.

The DG noted that the county had achieved a lot under Governor Dr Oparanya and there was a lot in store in terms of development that require him to implement because he has been part of the development plans.

He said he has enough experience to run the Government after learning a lot from Dr Oparanya whom he has been serving as his Deputy.

"I have gained enough experience to run and manage the County Government. I request you to vote for me as the next Governor. The county will be safe in my hands" Prof Kutima told mourners during the funeral of former councillor Timothy Sembeya in Kongoni ward, Likuyani Sub County.

Prof Kutima who shared a platform with his political rival Dr Bonny Khalwale said if elected he will continue with the development agenda started by Dr Oparanya and initiate more projects that will uplift lives of residents of the County.

The Deputy Governor assured residents of Likuyani that his Government will focus on developing the Sub County adding that he will build on development record of Dr Oparanya.

He encouraged locals to register as voters saying Likuyani has only registered 1,079 new voters against the target of 14,538 voters set by IEBC.

"To make impact during the next election, we have to register as voters. I urge our people to ensure they register as voters to participate in the next election," he said.

The Deputy Governor was accompanied by CECMs led by Hon Robert Makhanu (Lands), MCAs led by Deputy Speaker Hon Leonard Kasaya, Administrator in his office Mr Luke Otipo among other officers.
