MP launches gubernatorial bid to unseat Governor Wa Iria

29 August 2016, 14:32 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau over the weekend officially declared his interest to vie for Murang’a governorship seat in 2017.

During a thanksgiving occasion where he commended Kigumo residents for electing him as MP for two terms, Kamau said he is determined to unseat governor Mwangi Wa Iria in 2017 general elections.

The MP observed that following his development record, he is best suited to serve the county as governor, while accusing the incumbent of massive corruption.

He castigated the county governor and his administration for rolling out projects which were not of importance to majority of residents.

“I hereby request you as my people to give me approval to move forward and vie for governorship position,” Kamau asked scores of residents who thronged the event held at Kigumo Bendera grounds.

The legislator is banking on development of education and infrastructure in his area as the basis for his campaigns for governor’s seat.

“Since I was elected as MP of Kigumo, I have ensured the education standards have gone up and also nine roads have been tarmacked in the area,” said Kamau who was supported by eight MCAs.

Rivalry between the MP and governor Wa Iria emerged after the former declared his interest for gubernatorial seat.

The county has in recent past witnessed conflicts between supporters of the two leaders especially during public forums.

In the thanksgiving ceremony, Kamau who was supported by Kandara MP Alice Wahome, talked of alleged huge wastage of public resources by the county government.

He was accompanied by MPs, Muthomi Njuki (Chuka Igambang’ombe), Maiso Leshomo (Samburu), Mohammed Elimi (Tarbaj) and Mpuru Aburi (Tigania East) who drummed up support for their colleague saying he had the capacity to transform Murang’a County
