Kidero Will Be Contesting For The Homa Bay seat As An Independent Candidate

Former Nairobi City County Governor Evans Kidero has announced that he will be contesting for the Homa Bay gubernatorial seat as an independent candidate.

Kidero said that he has been inundated with calls, with people asking him to soldier on with his candidature.

“In response to your cries for better governance and restoration of your sovereign jurisdiction, I will offer myself as an independent candidate for the position of Homa Bay County Governor,” wrote the former county boss.

“I am overwhelmed by your unconditional support. I will be on the ballot on August 9th 2022.  Take my word – I will not let you down!”

Kidero opted to vie as an independent candidate after the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party announced that the party will support Homa Bay County Woman representative Gladys Wanga as its flagbearer

On Thursday ODM party leader Raila Odinga announced that the seven contestants will Support Wanga’s bid

“Out of the seven contestants who were here, they’ve all agreed to step down and back Gladys Wanga as the party candidate in the Homa Bay County gubernatorial race. In the same spirit, they’ve also nominated her running mate as Oyugi Magwanga,” said the ODM leader.

Kidero said that he was not invited to the meeting and he was not in agreement.” In consensus, everybody must agree. I will be exploring alternative avenues to run as a Governor.”
