Bungoma Governor backs Kombo over Wetang'ula

02 December 2013, 14:30 Eugene Odanga

Bungoma - Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka has thrown his weight behind Musikari Kombo for the Bungoma senatorial seat in the upcoming by elections.

The by elections are set for December 19, 2013 after the earlier result which saw Wetang'ula win the seat was annulled due to election irregularities.

Lusaka has been tight lipped over his choice for the seat but told a gathering over the weekend that he would support Kombo.

After having a meeting with Kombo and Amani Coalition leader Musalia Mudavadi, Lusaka agreed to join hands with them arguing that Wetang'ula's cause is not helpful to the people of Bungoma.

" I will support Kombo because of his track record and willingness to work with the government at hand, he said.

" The people of Bungoma need a leader who can work with the government and help the region grow, not someone who has been sidelined by the government, he said.

On his part, Kombo thanked Lusaka for his endorsement.

" The fact that Governor Lusaka has supported my bid shows the people of Bungoma that I can work with him in ensuring the County grows, he added.

Kombo is running for the seat on a New Ford Kenya ticket.
