Mandago to lead Uhuru’s cam­paign in re­gion

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Rift Valley -

Uasin Gishu Gov­er­nor Jackson Mandago (pic­tured) has been picked by Ju­bilee to chair co­or­di­na­tion of its cam­paigns in the re­gion, ahead of a re­peat of the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

On Fri­day, the Supreme Court or­dered a re­peat of the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion in 60 days.

Mandago was picked fol­low­ing a meet­ing be­tween Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta, DP William Ruto and all elected Ju­bilee lead­ers at State House, Nairobi, on Satur­day.

The gov­er­nor was re­elected for a sec­ond term and Ju­bilee in­sid­ers say he has wide in­flu­ence in the re­gion.

“We have al­ready hit the road and we are sure of win­ning again. We will prove wrong those who ar­gue that we didn’t win,” Mandago told the Star on Satur­day.
