Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana on Friday announced that he will vie for the Senate seat in his home county at the end of his ten-year term in August.

Speaking in Makueni during the public participation and presentation of the County’s Budget for the year 2022/2023, Kibwana highlighted his desire to promote and safeguard devolution as the main reason behind his move to the Senate.

I strongly believe in the power of devolution, if elected senator I aim to safeguard and protect devolution not only in Makueni but the whole country,” explained Kibwana.

The Muungano Party leader also said while at the Senate he will be in a position to steer the wheels of devolution countrywide after accumulating ten years of experience in the counties.

“I’m not bragging, it’s what I know. I know that because I have sponsors who I will introduce to the next governor to continue with the work because even as we speak, I have some plans with the sponsors,” the governor added.

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has expressed interest in the gubernatorial seat to replace Kibwana.

In 2017, the second term Governor was elected on a Wiper party ticket. However, he later fell out with party boss Kalonzo Musyoka with the former accusing the latter of being dishonest and not following their 2017 Memorandum of Understanding.
