Busia Finance CEC enters race to unseat Ababu Namwamba

Busia  County Executive Committee Member  for  Finance Leonard Wanda Obimbira  has announced his intention to unseat  Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba  in 2017 elections.
”  I am today announcing  my intention to go for the  Budalang’i Parliamentary seat on Orange Democratic Movement ticket.  I want the constituents to get the message loud and clear,” Obimbira said  at Bukoma Beach in Bunyala West on Wednesday.
Obimbira said he  has opted to  enter the race to  improve the socio-economic development  which he said  has registered  a negative downturn in Bunyala  sub county.
 The MP has also “deserted” the people of  Budalangi  by crossing ship to the  Labour Party of Kenya, thus living a gap in the  most popular ODM party.
AS a big party in the County ODM must have a candidate  and that candidate must be myself.  There is no secret in me  going for the seat  on  ODM ticket after the party primaries,” he said.
Obimbira said  he  has the urge to reverse   poverty levels which is also on the rise in the area. ” I will also be in the forefront to fight for the rights of fishermen  by coming up with bills that will  save them from constant harassment by Ugandan authorities.”
Other who will battle for the ODM ticket includes  Andrew Nakitare,  Albert  Gumo, Constantine  Obuya, Deogratias Adundo  and Odhiambo Bara.
