Former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya has been elected the new Trans Nzoia Governor.
Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa, who was battling it out with Mr. Natembeya for the Governor's seat on a Ford Kenya ticket, conceded defeat via his social media platforms.
Mr. Wamalwa noted that he was unsuccessful in his quest to become the next Trans Nzoia Governor.
"The Elections are now over & the results are out. I have not been successful in my quest to be the second Governor of our great County. I thank the Almighty God, all my supporters, from both far and near, for their unyielding support. Receive my eternal gratitude.
"I thank the people of Kimini for giving me the opportunity to be their MP for two terms. I thank my Party- Ford Kenya for it's support. My heartfelt gratitude to the party supporters and volunteers who have worked so hard in this campaign," part of the statement read.
The legislator also congratulated Mr. Natembeya on his win.
