Kisii Governor James Ongwae has been challenged to throw his weight behind Kitutu Chache South MP Richard Onyonka ahead of the 2022 polls.
Onyonka said Ongwae should consider endorsing him for the county’s top seat in 2022.
The vocal lawmaker insisted that his chances are high to win the Kisii governorship seat, therefore, the current county boss should endorse him.
“I am appealing to Governor Ongwae to endorse me because I am fit to take over from him. Getting Ongwae’s endorsement will mean that I will win as early as 8 am,” he stated.
He vowed that he will not change his mind to seek re-election as the MP in his constituency.
Onyonka added that he has proven to be worth a leader for the years he has served as the MP in Kitutu Chache South.
“My constituents know the kind of a leader I am and this is why I want to be the next governor of Kisii so that I can develop all regions across the county,” he stated.
He was speaking on Sunday in Kisii town where he confirmed that he will reach out to residents in the entire county to seek support.
