Obure is not a newbie in the political arena, having served as the county’s first Senator and Bobasi Member of Parliament in 2007.He formerly served in the Cabinets of President Daniel arap Moi and retired President Mwai Kibaki and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, as well as in the Grand Coalition Government of retired President Mwai Kibaki and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Chris Obure, the Transport Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS), has quit to run for governor of Kisii in the August elections. Obure, accompanied by Transport CS James Macharia, stated that he will enter the race and seek an Azimio la Umoja ticket.Macharia, on his part, said he still had a few hours to decide whether to resign, or not.
Macharia praised Obure’s work ethic, saying he delivered his duties with integrity and commitment.“We have worked very well together. He has been a Finance minister before, and for me to have him as my CAS was a big support,” the Transport CS said.Obure disregarded his adversaries’ allegations that he was too elderly to run for the Kisii presidency in 2020, when he declared his interest in the role. The politician claimed that he is still fit and has the necessary experience to serve the people of Kisii as governor for one term before retiring in 2027.
