In Kisii, rivalry is already brewing between Nyaribari Masaba MP Ezekiel Machogu and Senator Sam Ongeri, both who have declared interest in the gubernatorial seat. Senator Ongeri joins the race with what his supporters tout as huge political experience dating from the days of the Moi government. I have already made up my mind that I am in this race to the end," the MP told the Star on the phone. Machogu says it is time Ongeri retired from active politics on account of his age and give room to younger politicians..Elders supporting Machogu's bid told Ongeri to quit active politics, citing his advanced age. A similar press conference by elders was held at Nyamasibi where the elders from Masaba also told Ongeri to drop his bid.
