Lamu Senator Anuwar Loitiptip has announced that he will defend his political seat in the August, 9, 2022 general elections.

Loitiptip said he will for the second time bid for the Senatorial post urging Lamu residents to back his bid.

The youthful Lamu leader said he will work towards regaining his seat, assuring Lamu dwellers of his total dedication.

Loitiptip was in 2017 elected on Jubilee ticket but later, ditched the party and realigned himself with the Deputy President William Ruto’s political outfit United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Speaking in Lamu on Friday, Loitiptip said he has dedicated himself in closely monitoring the management of public resources at the Senate, efforts that he has vowed to foreground if elected for a second time as Lamu Senator.

The politician has on several occasions rubbed shoulders the wrong way with Lamu Governor Fahim Twaha following unending wrangles between the Lamu County government and health workers in the county.

“The county government must strive towards face-lifting the health sector and stop giving our people substandard and poor health services,” he once said after visiting the Mpeketoni Sub-County hospital in early, 2021.

The Devolution and Intergovernmental Relations Vice Chairperson has also taken his Boss, Twaha to the Senate to answer to graft allegations more specifically on the 157 million shillings set aside to fund various initiatives and health interventions to contain further spread of the Covid-19 that hit the country in early March, 2020.

He said the funds were never utilised, raising many accountability questions among Lamu dwellers.

Mr Loitiptip who is already traversing the Lamu county in a bid to convince the Lamu communities to give him another chance has exuded hopes that all will be well.

“I want to carry on with the same zeal and dedication in serving my Lamu people and I am ready to face with whoever will compete with me for the Lamu Senatorial race,” he noted.
