A TOUGH ROAD FOR JUBILEE IN KERICHO

PAUWhile President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto are on record stating that the new outfit wouldn’t have preferential candidates in the election, Ruto’s allay Energy Cabinet Secretary (CS) Charles Keter seems to be reading from a different script.

Speaking during a fundraising at Nyabangi primary school in Belgut constituency, Keter declared that would put the county’s leadership in order by ensuring that his former Kericho High schoolmate, Governor Paul Chepkwony is sent packing.

Keter is fronting Richard Langat, the suspended National Social Security Fund (NSSF) trustee who is currently facing Sh5.5B financial misappropriation of fund case over the Tassia II housing scheme. But in a quick rejoinder, Chepkwony welcomed Jubilee Party’s decision that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission would conduct the party nominations reminding Keter that power rest with the people.

Keter’s remarks also appeared to rub Aaron Cheruiyot, his successor at the Senate the wrong way. Speaking during a fundraising at Kapsoit Full Gospel church, Cheruiyot who was accompanied by fellow senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Stephen Sang maintained that Jubilee Party (JP) doesn’t have a preferred candidate to wrestle the county’s leadership from governor Paul Chepkwony.

The senator pointed out that senior Jubilee leaders had stated clearly that the era when politician rode into power through political patronage had come to an end.
