Luke Naibei, from the Sabaot community, has been chosen by Bishop Jim Nduruchi as his running mate in the Trans Nzoia County gubernatorial race.
Mr. Naibei said the time has come for youths to be recognized and included in the county cake. He challenged electorates not to make mistakes in the next general election but instead vote wisely for leaders who can propel the county’s development.
“Do not play with monkeys on your farm, they will eat all your maize and leave you with nothing,” he warned, referring to leaders with no leadership qualities that he said will siphon county funds and leave the county with zero developments.
Nduruchi challenged other candidates to campaign peacefully and maturely without attacking each other and asked youths not to be used by politicians who are fond of making them drunk to heckle other candidates, especially at political rallies and funeral places.
Jim Nduruchi will now face off with former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner, George Natembeya, who has already picked Philomena Bineah Kapkor from the Sabaot community as his running mate, the incumbent Dr. Chris Wamalwa, and Prof. Ben Wanjala.
