Governor Tolgos defends ties with Kanu

Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos (pictured) has asked his critics in Jubilee to stop vilifying him for choosing to work with Kanu.

The county chief today said he did not belong to two emerging factions in Jubilee Party and dismissed reports that he had decamped from team Tanga Tanga, which is said to be allied to Deputy President William Ruto.

Mr Tolgos said he did not regret his close association with Kanu chairman Gideon Moi, adding that Kanu had a close working relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta-led Jubilee Party.

“Some people are saying I have decamped from Tanga Tanga, but I have never been in that outfit before. Kanu is in Jubilee government. So, why should these people (critics) panic?” Tolgos posed.

He said he had no plans to join the Tanga Tanga team despite being a victim of a barrage of insults from the faction.
