“I know that most of you have seen me with this one (as he points to a different but same-colored Land Cruiser V8 vehicle) and I want to thank my friend Eugene (former Defense cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa).

You helped me by letting me use this vehicle, but today, I now want to give it back to you, I want to say big thanks, but now it is the exact twin brother that I am now going to be using (is here).

So, guys, this car is for the people of Mumias East. It is not mine. This one is yours, and if you see it, you’re seeing Mumias East, the future governor,” said Honorable Salasya as he received the vehicle’s keys.
