Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka is confident of sending home Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati in the forthcoming General Election.

Speaking at the weekend when he joined residents of Kibisi village during the burial of veteran journalist John Muganda in Mbakalo Ward, Tongaren Constituency Lusaka said Wangamati has little to show for the last four years he has been in office.

Lusaka said Wangamati has performed dismally even after he set for him devolution structures as the first Governor of Bungoma.

‘It is regrettable that Wangamati is unable to ride on the governance structures we set. He has nothing to show, no wonder everywhere you go, people are complaining,” he said.

The Senate boss said his wish was to fight for the interest of the community at a higher level but the people of Bungoma had asked to return home.

“I wished to go for the running mate position with one of the leading presidential candidate in the country but when I consulted my people, all of them said I should return and complete what I started in Bungoma, because the county is heading to the dogs with poor leadership,” he said.

The Senate boss stated that with the great support he got a cross the County Wangamati should be prepared to be floored during the August 2022 election.

He also assured residents he will make it public which party he will use.

“Give me time, I will announce which vehicle I will use at an opportune time, at the moment let’s set structures in place first, a good player can score a goal even if he is naked, it is not a must that if you a nice sports garments you are a good player,” he stated.

He added: “Let my supporters be patient, I will make a public announcement about the party so that we move together but at the moment let’s be issue based and pray about peaceful coexistence.”

Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has already hinted on various forums that Lusaka will vie for the governorship on his party.
