Competition for political space in Trans Nzoia County ahead of the 2017 polls has heightened with Governor Patrick Khaemba saying he will ensure his political nemesis, Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa, is not re-elected.
The governor says he will support Wamalwa’s opponent, Julius Mbagaya, for the Kiminini seat in 2017, arguing that Mr Wamalwa has been undermining the county government and its leaders thus deserves to be taught a lesson for his disrespect. Mbagaya, who is the chief of staff in Governor Khaemba’s office, ran against Wamalwa in the 2013 elections and came second.
“Your MP is a boy who insults others everytime he opens his mouth,” said Khaemba during the opening of newly constructed ECD classrooms at Kaptien, Toror, Sabwani and Machungwa Polytechnic in Kiminini.
Other leaders at the event were area MCA Alfred Weswa, Mbagaya, Keiyo MCA Emmanuel Waswa, and county executive members Isaack Kogo, Eunice Chelimo and Mourice Lokwaliwa.
