• Health, agriculture, women and youth affairs are among the major issues that the cleared candidates have lined up to address if elected.
IEBC has cleared five contestants to run for Nyamira governor seat.
They are former Kitutu Masaba MP Walter Nyambati of UDA and his running mate Dr Erneo Nyakiba, and US-based advocate Henry Ongeri alongside his running mate Josephine Buruchara.
Others are Borabu MP Ben Momanyi of Wiper and his running mate Tom Otuto, and Joseph Kiangoi of ANC with his running mate Julius Mokogi.
ODM candidate Timothy Bosire and his running mate Charles Rigoro were also cleared on Sunday.
Governor Amos Nyaribo and his deputy James Gesami are expected to be cleared on Tuesday.
Former Commodity Fund chairman Mwancha Okioma of Jubilee and his running mate Charles Nyandiai will also appear before the electoral commission to seek clearance on Tuesday.
Health, agriculture, women and youth affairs are among the major issues that the cleared candidates have lined up to address if elected.
“Since devolution, we have not seen much in terms of development in the devolved unit. It is now 10 years and the national government has been pumping millions of cash into the county and not much has been achieved," Nyambati said on Sunday.
"We need a government that will ensure the county is at the same level as other developed counties in terms of health, agriculture and youth.”
In April, Nyaribo said he was confident of recapturing the seat.
“We have done some developments and are calling on Nyamira residents to support us to do more for the county. This is the time to change their lives,” he said at the time.
Among the key areas Nyaribo will focus on if reelected is health, infrastructure and agriculture, which he says make a large contribution to the county’s workforce.
