Obure for Kisii governor, Nyachae for senator on JP tickets, says MP Tong’i
Kisii Senator Chris Obure will run for governor on the Jubilee Party ticket and former Constitution Implementation Commission chairman Charles Nyachae for senator. Nyaribari Chache MP Richard Tong’i said Jubilee has identified the two to fly the party’s flag. Obure chairs a caucus advocating Kisii unity. Nyachae, the son of former Minister Simeon Nyachae, has been named to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidential campaign team. “We’re very confident the two will win the seats,” Tong’i said in Kisumu on Monday. “Obure has what it takes to be governor. He is experienced, having served in government in various capacities. He has a track record and we can count on him to transform this county.” The legislator said they have not identified Obure’s running mate and a hopeful for woman representative. Reports indicate current Deputy Governor Joash Maangi could be Obure’s running mate.
