Former Migori Senator Presents His Credentials to Nigeria’s President Buhari

Former Migori senator and now Kenya’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr Wilfred Machage was treated to a full guard of honour by the Nigerian government when he visited Nigeria’s President H.E Muhammadu Buhari to present his credentials at State house Abuja

Machage was appointed as Nigeria’s High Commissioner by President Kenyatta in an appointments spree which also saw Richard Titus Ekai and John Okuna Ogango appointed as Ambassadors.

In July last year, Machage announced that he has retired from elective politics. The Veteran politician said that he has served the country long enough as a politician and will now concentrate on his new duties as a diplomat.

“I have retired from elective politics. I have served my people long enough and I think it is time to move on to other things,” said Machage.

Dr Machage, a native of Kehancha in Kuria West, Migori County, was at the heart of the region’s politics for decades, serving as an MP for three terms.

He also served as an assistant minister in former President Mwai Kibaki’s government.

In 2013, Dr Machage was a beneficiary of the negotiated democracy between the Kuria and Luo communities in Migori, which saw him elected the first senator of the county.
