Former radio journalist has declared his bid to vie for Trans Nzoia County gubernatorial seat to unseat Gov. Patrick Khaemba. Speaking during the weekend at Kipkeikei High School, Sang’ said that his decision follows wide consultations with local leaders and residents.
He is planning to vie on Jubilee ticket. Local council of elders had asked Sang to reconsider his decision after his earlier plan to contest the position after termination of his case by the International Criminal Court.
“I believe I have what it takes to steer this county to great heights of development,” he said.
Sang’s declaration comes at the backdrop of the pre-2013 election pact signed by elders from Luhya and Kalenjin communities that spelled out sharing of political leadership. The Mabanga Accord saw a Bukusu take the governor’s seat while a Sabaot clinch senatorial seat.
