Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has called for unity among senior political leaders in Western Kenya.
Speaking during the launch of the Western Region signature collection for the BBI in Bungoma, the governor dismissed the 2022 presidential aspirants from the region.
Oparanya referred to Mudavadi and other presidential aspirants from the region as “jokers who lack proper strategies to win support from voters through campaign rallies.”
“I am happy at the way the politics of the day are shaping up because it has served to expose political conmen who have been in our midst for a long time waiting to pounce on an opportunity like a hyena stalks a human being in anticipation that his swinging hand might fall off,” Oparanya said.
“I am telling the Luhya community that you must be serious for us to matter when it comes to key decision-making posts in the country,” the governor added.
The Council of Governor chairman who was also accompanied by the Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa did not, however, mention the name of the politicians he was referring to.
But so far Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula, Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and the Kakamega Governor himself have declared their intentions to run for the top seat come 2022.

“We are fed up, because they have misled us for the last 30 years but now, they must also accept to be led by others,” Oparanya told a charged crowd in Bungoma.
Governor Oparanya said the Western Kenya communities stood a better chance of clinching the presidency seat if they form one party with a solid support base.
“I have been telling these aspirants, that you cannot be the president if you don’t have MPs in Parliament, how will you implement your agenda?” The Governor posed.
