Nairobi - Former Lang'ata Parliamentary contestant Stanley Livondo will vie for the Kakamega Senatorial seat in 2017.
The effervescent Livondo, known for trying to unseat current CORD leader Raila Odinga has given up on Nairobi and will vie for the 2017 seat in Kakamega.
He says that on reflection, he has felt he will do his home County Kakamega alot of good by going back home.
" I am going back home. I have decided to go for the Kakamega's Senators seat in 2017," he told News24.
" It is a good decision for me. I think that with devolution I can get the chance to help the people where I come from," he added.
Livondo will be helped in his plight by the announcement by current Senator Bonny Khalwale that he will vie for the Governor's seat in the 2017 elections.
Livondo though does not fear Khalwale.
" I respect him and if he decides to run for Senate I will compete with him. May the best man win in this case," he added
Livondo was a part of the Party of National Unity in the 2007 General Elections which was under the stewardship of the then President Mwai Kibaki.
