We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Kajiado’s latest blue-eyed boy in the region politics, Michael Semera, has officially announced he will back Joseph ole Lenku’s governor bid in this year’s general election.

In a surprise announcement, made exclusively for KNU this evening, Semera said his decision to support former Interior CS is final.

“I have been under pressure for the last three months from Lenku and another governor aspirant in Jubilee, Tarayia ole Kores, to join their teams as running mate but I have now made a final decision,” said Semera.

Semera also claimed Governor David Nkedianye has been calling him and even met him recently in Kajiado town where he pleaded with him not to vie for any political seat.

“I want to tell Nkedianye that I have settled for Lenku and nothing will change my mind to the last minute. I am putting my bet on Lenku because that is the direction every other sober person is headed to,” said Semera.

Lenku and Kores have been competing to win Semera, a well known banker who has served in Kitengela, Kajiado, Ongata Rongai and Loitokitok as senior banker.

Semera’s decision to back Lenku now leaves Kores a wounded stakeholder in the race for governor, and on the other end will disorganise Nkedianye’s support in Kajiado East, where the governor has his swing vote.

Even though Semera comes from the ‘black cow’ community of the Kajiado Maasai, he is the most sought political player given his role in the banking industry.

His age has also played a major role in seeking the support of the youth to back whoever he supports in Kajiado politics.

Both Kores and Lenku have not made clear who they will pick as their running mates as party primaries come closer each day.
