Nakuru advocate joins speaker race with MCAs backing

An advocate based at Nakuru High Court has joined the race for county assembly speaker.

Peter Bore of Gordon Ogola, Kipkoech and Company Advocates will face four other contenders.

They are Deputy Speaker Eunice Njeri, Roads executive Joel Maina, Zack Njeru and John Githoi.

Incumbent Susan Kihika will vie for Senator on a Jubilee Party ticket.

Bore said he has the backing of several MCAs who have promised to push for him to win the third most powerful county seat.

“I am sure of winning this. I have met a number of MCA nominees who have promised to support me if they win,” he said in Nakuru on Sunday.

The Kenya School of Law graduate said he intends to transform the county by improving the quality of legislation.

“I will improve service delivery by motivating MCAs. I will also improve relations between the assembly and the executive,” he said.

“I will encourage dialogue as well as provide speedy and expedient resolution of disputes.”

Bore is a University of South Africa (Bachelor of Laws LLB) graduate and also has a Diploma in Law from the Kenya School of Law.
