Communications expert Patience Nyange has denied claims that she has backed out of the Taita Taveta gubernatorial race.

In a statement, she asked her supporters to ignore the rumours and propaganda making rounds on social media platforms.

“I will be on the ballot boxes on 09.08.2022 as a Gubernatorial candidate for Taita Taveta County,” she affirmed.

She reiterated that her dedication and commitment to better the lives of Taita Taveta residents was unmatched.

Nyange resigned as a Council Member at the Media Council of Kenya a week ago to vie for political aspirations.

In a separate interview, she opined that she is one person who treasures critics in her life, as they give her a reason to pray.

She said the more critics she has, the better for her, as they give her reasons to refocus her political undertakings.

“We believe God has gone before us and prepared a way for us. Please tell a friend to tell a friend!” she stated.

She will be facing the incumbent, Governor Granton Samboja and former Governor John Mrutu.

Others are Norway-based Racheal Mwakazi, lawyer and economist Stephen Mwakesi among others.

The county has about 155,716 registered voters and 354 polling stations. Political party and tribal realignments are key election factors.

The Taita and Taveta are considered indigenous communities, while the Kamba, Kikuyu, and others are regarded as swing votes.
