A blow to Jubilee Governor after his deputy ditched him to deputize his ODM's rival in August polls

Yesterday presidential and gubernatorial candidates officially announced their running mates yesterday. Yesterday was the deadline for the naming of the running mates per IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati.

Garissa governor Ali Roba Korane has suffered a major blow after his deputy governor Abdi Dagane ditched him at the last minute. The two were jointly elected together in 2017 polls on a Jubilee party ticket.

Deputy governor Abdi Dagane decamped to the camp of former Garissa governor Nathif Jamal. Nathif Jamal is vying for the same gubernatorial seat on a ODM party ticket in August polls.

Mr. Abdi Dagane will now deputize the former governor Nathif Jamal in the Garissa gubernatorial race. He was publicly unveiled today in a colourful ceremony attended by council of elders from the county.

Garissa senator Abdul Haji was present in the unveiling ceremony and promised to rally behind Nathif Jamal gubernatorial bid on a ODM party ticket. Senator Haji is the organizing secretary of ruling Jubilee party.

The 2022 gubernatorial race will be a rematch of 2017 race. Governor Ali Roba Korane trounced down the then Garissa governor Nathif Jamal in 2017 polls. The two will meet again in 2022 polls and the former governor Nathif Jamal is keen to recapture the seat he lost in 2017.

UDA party has also fronted Major Dekow as their gubernatorial candidate. Major Dekow enjoys massive backing from UDA party leadership in the county led by Garissa Town legislator Aden Duale who is the UDA party pointman in the region.
