Two men with different political ambitions come 2022 met in Empiron Village in Kimana ward, Kajiado South Sub-County, on Saturday.
Wilson Mancha Selengia hosted Deputy Governor Martin Moshisho at his home in a meeting that also saw the presence of County Assembly Clerk Leboo Saisa and other senior county government officials.
The agenda of the meeting remains under wraps as Selengia refused to disclose the purpose of the meeting and why it had to take place in Kimana.
Selengia, an employee of the county assembly, is said to harbour political ambitions. Moshisho is also rumoured he could be in the ballot box in 2022 as he seeks to unseat MP Memusi Kanchory in Kajiado Central Constituency.
Neither Selengia nor Moshisho could confirm their political ambitions, but those around them say chances are high Selengia might be eyeing Kimana Ward seat, while Moshisho is also gunning for the central seat.
All the same, whether Moshisho will be in the ballot or not, for the first time, Kajiado Central seat will attract strong men of means in the 2022 general election.
With Bishop Moses Meeli coming in with a lot of might, Kanchory, for the first time, will have to face an uphill task in his attempts to retain the seat.
The election in Kajiado Central will be, do, or die for all the candidates. With Governor Joseph Lenku’s hand in it, the question of “system” is most likely going to work negatively on the incumbent.
Lenku will be the happiest man to see Kanchory going home that very early morning. The MP has on many occasions “stepped” on Lenku’s feet as he criticises his leadership.
The governor is currently working closely with all the Kajiado Central MCAs, while the MP is operating solo in most cases.
If those working closely with the governor are representing numbers in their wards, chances are high the MP is a marked person slated for the political dustbin.
