Keep off Bungoma politics, Kombo tells outsiders

09 October 2013, 18:10 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Former Local Government Minister, Musikari Kombo, who successfully petitioned the election of Cord co-principal Moses Wetangula whose win was overturned last week, has appealed to politicians from outside Bungoma County to keep off the local politics.

Speaking on phone Wednesday, Kombo said  the County residents should be left to make their choice independently in the yet to be announced by-elections, without external influence.

“The High court overturned the elections on the grounds that they were not carried out in the rightful manner. The coming by-election is therefore an opportunity for the people of Bungoma to make choice of the leader they want. It is important that they are allowed to vote for a leader they want without being pushed by some external forces,” said Kombo, who will make a second stab at the Senatorial seat on a New Ford Kenya Party ticket.

He appealed to security agents in the County to be on high alert in the period preceding and after the campaigns to ensure that the residents elect their leader of choice freely.

Meanwhile, Bungoma governor, Kenneth Lusaka, has declared that he will not back any of the senatorial candidates in the high-octane race,  adding that is important for him to remain neutral because he will work with whoever the people of Bungoma will elect.
