Baraza to Ruto; As you impose projects on Bungoma, Return my money I go develop needy schools

Zachariah Baraza addressing a rally in Bumula on Saturday 9 April 2022

Bungoma gubernatorial aspirant Zachariah Baraza has urged UDA party to refund Kshs 500,000/= he paid for gubernatorial position following the revelation that it prefers backing Ford Kenya’s Ken Lusaka. This follows several Kenya Kwanza Alliance pronouncements that were cemented by a meeting with UDA top officials who asked him to pave way for Lusaka.

Baraza reminded Ruto of his promise that UDA won’t dish positions but would allow hustlers to choose their own but right now leadership is being arranged from Karen. He also noted that the party is busy complaining about Aziomio presidential candidate and ODM’s party leader Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga being a project and yet they are the other hand imposing many projects in Bungoma including Lusaka

Cement delivery, toilet facelift;

Baraza spoke while delivering 50 bags of cement at Khelela primary school where he also donated Kshs. 10,000 to improve the school’s toilet. He decried the poor state of schools within Tongaren Constituency saying he has seen about 18 such institutions.

Education being a key factor in the development of any society Baraza indicated that he remains committed to improving the learning conditions through betterment of infrastructure in institutions.

On Health, he assured residents of upgrading their Health Center into a Referral Hospital well equipped with necessary machines/facilities like CT-Scan, X-Ray machines, Theatre, maternity etc. He also promised that needy and vulnerable residents will be issued with NHIF cards to help them access treatment.

Meet-the-people tours;

Bumula, Naitiri stop overs;

While addressing his Naitiri supporters, Baraza promised to tarmac Sikhendu – Naitiri – Nzoia so that residents do enjoy good road network like other areas.

On equitable share Baraza said he will ensure that each sub county gets an equal share of development as opposed to what’s happening now; Kanduyi has road construction worth 1.5Billion, Stadium 3Billion, Hospital 300million while other regions have nothing to be proud of. “I will end the use of Naitiri – Misikhu road as campaign item each election time by tarmacking it” ~ Baraza


He urged the public to ignore Senator Moses Wetangula, Barasa saying his bid is self-made and not like that of his opponents who are projects;

  • 2013; Lusaka was Wetangula’s project that bought wheelbarrows at an exaggerated Kshs. 109,000 each, they procured musician Kanda Bongoman at Kshs. 20million just to entertain selves while wananchi were sleeping hungry, they also used Kshs. 100million to construct a wall around a hospital instead of buying the much needed drugs.
  • 2017; little known Wangamati was Wetangula’s project who bought Kshs 100 jerrican at Kshs 10,000 each and he physically attacked everyone within the county
  • 2022; Wetangula is again bringing his current project, Lusaka


Reacting to the ongoing negotiated democracy talks, Baraza told off the Deputy president for KUPANGA regions in isolation saying areas presumed to be predominantly for Ruto (sabaots, Kalenjins, Nandis) like Mt. Elgon, Eldoret, Nandi have attracted tens of candidates on various seats but no one is pushing aspirants onto the negotiating table… why Bungoma???

He informed the public that; Tongaren MP aspirants Antonina Sangura, Mwambu Bethwel and Sebastian were recently invited to Karen where they were asked to step down and instead back Ford Kenya’s Chikati. He encouraged the three to defy the KUPANGWA orders and instead push on

He also hinted of going independent if UDA insists on KUMPANGA.

#iKUWEiKUWE Corner;

The uncertainty in the Kenya Kwanza Alliance coalition agreement has hit UDA hard in Bungoma;

  • Ruto anapanga others regions and not his backyard
  • UDA wont campaign for its MCAs in Bungoma
  • No more UDA recruitment is taking place
  • The hustler narrative isn’t making sense anymore…. Ruto’s favorites are all in positions… NO single hustler is favored; Hon. Wetangula – Bungoma Senator, Hon. Catherine Wambilianga – Bungoma Woman Rep, Hon. Mwambu Mabonga – MP Bumula, Didmus Barasa – MP Kimilili, Dan Wanyama – MP Webuye West, Fred Kapondi – MP Mt Elgon and of course Lusaka – Senate Speaker

Forget HATUPANGWINGWI nonsense, Tunapangwa na Ruto ~ Zacharia Baraza
