Former Assistant Minister for Local Government and MP for North Mugirango Hon Joseph Kiangoi Ombasa has officially joined Jubilee bandwagon.
Hon Kiangoi was named into the team that will lead Uhuru re-election campain team. He is currently serving in the East African Legislative Assembly EALA nominated on ODM ticket.
Others appointed tio Uhuru re-election campaign in Gusii/South Nyanza region include Hon Charles Nyachae, Mr Albert Nyaundi, Hon Joash Maangi, Hon Walter Nyambati, Hon Jimmy Angwenyi and Hon Joash Nyamoko
‘Hon Kiangoi is a political reject who was nominated to EALA due to his perceived closeness to a known ODM strongman from Nyanza, he adds no value to the party’– Hon Agwata Nyamira MCA told this writer.
His nomination was widely protested in Kisii as many hoped that the party could have nominated the then ODM and Raila ambassidor at large Jeff Nyamboga.
Hon Kiangoi is a DP Ruto ally since his days as KANU strongman having worked as legal consultant for Kenya Seed and other companies associated with Mzee Moi.
He served as one term MP for North Mugirango between 1997 and 2002 and has never been re-elected since then. He is now among the political brokers purpoting to campaign for Uhuru in Gusii land despite his zero influence.
Hon Kiangoi will fly the Jubilee flag in the senate race against Ford Kenya’s Hon Mong’are Okong’o and ODM’s Lawyer Okong’o Omogeni (snr counsel)
