Jour­nal­ist to vie for MCA against Bu­sia ma­jor­ity leader

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

A Bu­sia jour­nal­ist will vie against assem­bly ma­jor­ity leader Josephat Wan­dera for the Elugulu ward seat in Bu­tula sub­county. Wil­ber­force Oduya, whose last sta­tion was Bu­sia FM, de­clared in­ter­est in the seat dur­ing a funds drive for women’s groups in Bu­sia town on Satur­day. The func­tion was presided over by Na­tional Vi­sion Party leader Nicholas Bi­wott. Oduya, 32, will vie on an NVP ticket. “I be­lieve it is time for the youth to take over the lead­er­ship of Elugulu ward. While we ap­pre­ci­ate what Wan­dera has done for us, I will bring fresh ideas to im­prove what he has done for 10 years,” he said. Oduya, a fourth year stu­dent at Mt Kenya Univer­sity study­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions, has been in jour­nal­ism since 2008. He worked for Pamoja Ra­dio, Ed­u­ca­tion In­sight, Maata Ra­dio Lod­war, Gover­nor’s Diary, Ma­genta Train­ing In­sti­tute and Talk Africa. Wan­dera said he is ready for the chal­lenge.
