• Lusaka said Wangamati had pledged to complete the Misikhu-Brigadier road, which is not the case.
• The Senate Speaker questioned why Wangamati has not completed the glucose factory and the industrial park he had promised in Webuye town.
Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati failed in all his pre-election pledges and does not deserve a second term, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has said.
Speaking in Kimaeti, Bumula constituency, he urged voters to reject Wangamati, saying he has taken them for a ride.
"If he did nothing that he had promised in his first term, what makes you imagine he will deliver anything in his second and last term?" Lusaka asked.
The Senate Speaker was the first Bungoma governor from 2013-17. He lost the seat to Wangamati in 2017 and is now in the race to try and recapture it.
Wangamati is running on DAP-K ticket while Lusaka is running on the Ford Kenya party ticket.
Lusaka said Wangamati had pledged to complete the Misikhu-Brigadier road, which is not the case.
"He told you people that if he fails to complete the said road by the end of his term then you should vote him out. Isn't that the case?" Lusaka asked.
The Senate Speaker also questioned why Wangamati has not completed the glucose factory and the industrial park he had promised in Webuye town.
"Where are the factories that he promised ? This is not a man to be trusted with a second term," Lusaka said.
He rubbished Wangamati's campaign slogan of '#Ni Job si Stori!' saying the opposite was true.
Lusaka also said Wangamati should come clean on NHIF cover that he had promised residents and even launched but wasn't working.
He further accused Wangamati of riding on World Bank projects that he (Senate Speaker) initiated during his tenure.
"All these World Bank projects they brag about were negotiated and signed during my tenure," Lusaka said.
The two are expected to face off in a tight race in the forthcoming election.
