Kenya: Timmamy Launches Bid

FORMER National Museums of Kenya chairman Issa Timmamy on Monday launched his bid for Lamu governor with a promise to revamp the Lamu county economy.

Timmamy launched his bid on a UDF ticket a day after the conclusion of the annual Lamu cultural festival at the Mkunguni square in Lamu town.

He said he will create jobs and improve the 'ailing' county education standards. Timmamy said religious education is important for development of the county.

Timmamy was accompanied by UDF national chairman Hassan Osman. He said Lamu has suffered because of poor leadership with leaders failing to address the plight of the people.
