Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has confirmed that he will be vying for president in the upcoming 2022 polls.
“Yes, I am running for president in 2022,” he said.
He added that he will be seeking the seat on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket where he is currently the co-deputy party leader under opposition chief Raila Odinga.
“I am a member of ODM so I will be running on an ODM ticket,” he added.
Oparanya who doubles up as the Council of Governors (CoG) chair shares the post with his Mombasa counterpart Hassan Joho who is his co-deputy boss at ODM.
This comes at a time when Raila is also being considered a possible contestant in the race.
At the same time, Joho has also hinted at vying for the presidency after the end of his second and last term.
