Mogere now quits to try hand in parliament

The managing director National Cereals and Produce Board Naftali Mogere has resigned to contest for the Bobasi parliamentary seat during the December polls.

Mogere will now try to give the sitting member of parliament Stephen Manoti hard time to recapture the seat.

Mogere tendered his resignation to his boss Agriculture minister Kipruto Arap Kirwa. The former MD will bank on his development record and clan factor to unseat Manoti who is serving for the second term.

Mogere has been holding meetings with persons he had assisted secure employment in both government and private sector to boost his campaigns.

The soft-spoken and policed personality is the candidate to watch for the seat after the December elections.

Manoti and former area mp Chris Obure have been dominating the parliamentary race with Obure serving for three terms while Manoti is serving for the second time.

The former MD gained popularity when he was thrown out of National Social Security Fund over alleged corruption and abuse of office.

While serving as managing trustee NSSF, Mogere ensured that people from his constituency seeking employment and who had qualifications secured employment.

He extended the same spirit to NCPB by giving jobs to members of his community. The spirit gives him added advantage against his opponents.

He had conducted a number of fund-drives in aid of school orphans, clearing hospital bills for the sick among others.

He feels that issues facing the masses have not been addressed by the MP

The former MP is not a newcomer in politics as this is the man behind the political success of Obure. He is the one who had been coordinating and facilitating his political campaigns.
