Wiper governor now launches reelection bid with Raila Tosha slogan


Barely months after Makueni County governor Kivutha Kibwana announced that he was leaving Wiper Democratic Movement party to rejoin his Muungano party, another governor of the party has announced the launch of his 2022 reelection campaign, seeking a second term as governor. In a further blow to party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, the first term governor officially endorsed Raila Odinga for the presidency.


Taita Taveta governor Granton Samboja said this while opening the Kshs 50 million Mwatate Modern Market. He flaunted his performance record, saying that he had delivered on all his campaign promises, including the Mwatate Modern Market, and urged residents to grant him a second chance to complete his projects. In the same breath, he noted that of all the aspiring presidential candidates in the country, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was best suited to push the country’s development agenda forward.


Governor Samboja opened the market in a colourful event attended by hundreds of traders and other local residents.


The market project is a joint venture by the County government of Taita-Taveta in collaboration with the World Bank. The market contains 99 stalls and 144 open air spaces that are going to help the traders to sell their goods in a conducive environment.


Speaking in Mwatate during the official opening event, Samboja said his administration would continue to engage in projects that will improve the lives of the residents.


“Our agenda was to open the market and help traders carry out their economic activities in a conducive environment,” he said.


The governor further pointed out that his administration had built an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) that would be opened in a week’s time to enhance delivery of health services in the region.
He noted that to address the shortage of beds in hospitals, he has built a hospital with 150 beds to help accommodate patients in the hospitals. An eye and cancer centre have also been opened at Moi County Referral Hospital to bolster health services.


Granton was accompanied by several Members of County Assembly (MCAs), senior officials from his government, clergy men and prominent musicians from Tanzania including Upendo Nkone and William Yilima.
