Recently, the governor claimed that Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau was undermining him politically. Mr Kamau has, however, denied sabotaging the governor or any other leader, saying he was concentrating on the affairs of his constituency. He spoke as a delegation from Trans Nzoia County, led by the Executive for Economic Planning, Veronica Muthoni, arrived in the region for a benchmarking strategy in agriculture related programmes. Iria appealed to leaders in the county to forge unity and work together instead of undermining others.

Iria said he went into hiding on Tuesday after realising detectives were out to humiliate him as his lawyer Ng'ang'a Mbugua moved to court to seek an injunction to stop his arrest. "I knew of the schemes to frustrate me," said the governor.
