Bungoma - Leaders in Bungoma have encouraged Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa to contest for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.
Bumula MP Boniface Otsiula and Kimilili Ward MCA David Barasa said Nairobi needs a servant like Wamalwa.
"We are fully behind Water CS. He is ripe to lead us in Nairobi, he can play a crucial role in attracting investors and ensure that development is realised," Otsiula said.
Speaking separately, the two leaders said recent attacks on Wamalwa's rallies show that the CS is popular.
Barasa accused rivals of employing old tactics which won't stop them from campaigning for him.
"We watched with awe as goons disrupted a meeting. We want our competitors to stop this barbaric behavior.
They do not own Nairobi. The city belongs to all of us and everybody is free to campaign and sell his agendas," noted Barasa.
Barasa noted that it was primitive to unleash goons to cause violence yet Wamalwa and other leaders were just selling their manifestos.
Otsiula said he will marshal his friends to campaign for Wamalwa.
"We are not relenting. Wamalwa must be the governor. This time round, you are going to see the real politics," said Otsiula.
