Renowned blogger Rober Alai has dismissed rumors he has endorsed former Nairobi boss, Evans Kidero’s bid to succeed current Homabay Governor, Cyprian Awiti in 2022.
This follows the circulation of photos of the blogger with Dr. Evans Kidero in Mombasa. The two are part of Raila Odinga’s entourage currently on a whirlwind tour of the Coastal strip to solidify his base and drum up support for the BBI.
Evans Kidero’s entry in the race has elicited different reactions from the residents of Homabay, with some saying the former Mumias MD should not run in the county over corruption charges he is currently facing.
Those who support Kidero’s bid say he is bringing a wealth of experience from the corporate sector as well as the Nairobi county government which he led from 2013-2017.
Homabay Women Rep Gladys Wanga, former aspirant Oyugi Magwanga, ODM Chair John Mbadi are also said to be eying the same seat in 2022.
