Lawyer Cliff Ombeta

Renowned Nairobi lawyer Cliff Ombeta has announced that he will be contesting for an elective post during the 2022 General Election.

The lawyer on Tuesday confirmed that he will be going for an elective post in Kisii County.

While confirming that he will be joining the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, Mr Ombeta announced that he will be going for the Bonchari constituency MP's seat.

The announcement confirms rumours which have been circulating about the lawyer known for criminal defense litigation.

The lawyer made a trip to the constituency during the by-election held in May this year and was seen mingling with locals as he observed the conduct of the election.

Political Philosophy

In a past post, Lawyer Ombeta termed Kenya a broken nation, saying that the people who have caused the brokenness are busy forming a coalition for the next general election.

In a tweet seen by Pulse Live, Ombeta said that the only mistake we did as Kenyan citizens was to elect our current leaders and we are already experiencing the consequences.

He added that for Kenya to heal, we must stay away from what broke us (Our current leaders).

This nation is broken. The architects of this injury, are now forming coalitions. As a nation, if we want to heal, we must stay away from what broke us. Why should we be in pain? As citizens, the only wrong we did, was to pick our current leaders. Consequences have followed,” said Cliff Ombeta.
