Outgoing Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau has wished his rival Muranga governor Mwangi wa Iria well in his second term.
The latter clinched the seat in the recently concluded August 8 elections.
Jamleck, who lost to Wa Iria in the Jubilee Party April nominations, asked the county boss to unite residents.
He urged for equitable share of development projects across the county.
“I take this opportunity to wish Muranga Governor Mwangi Wa Iria all the best as he starts his second term today.”
“Echoing Barack Obama’s words, if we don’t wish the Governor well, we will equally not be wishing our great county of Muranga well,” he said on Saturday.
“Let’s forget the past and focus on the future of Muranga county which starts today. Hongera and much blessings,” Jamleck added.

The former minister who served as Kigumo MP for two terms sought to oust Wa Iria but ditched the plans.
He pulled out of the race in order to campaign for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection.
This is despite the political parties dispute tribunal ordering that the primaries be repeated following his complaint.
