Top Standard editor Enoch Kiio Wambua has quit the media industry in preparation for his political bid for the Kitui Senate seat.
A public launch of his candidature took place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) yesterday with top CORD leadership, elected leadership from the greater Ukambani region, media personalities, friends and supporters in attendance.
Mr Kiio joins Mr Ikonge, Betty Mulinge among others in the Kitui Senatorial race. In terms of social media campaigns and image branding Enoch tops in the list. With implementation of his campaign strategy as well as use of his friends in media industry then he will be a threat in the race.
“For me and for the people of Kitui, that time has come; to take stock of the past and make informed decisions about our shared destiny. We are determined to set things right through an unwavering defence of devolution,” Wambua told his colleagues at a farewell luncheon hosted in his honour on Tuesday.
