Since 1902

Narok, Kenya: Narok County Senate candidate Andrew Sunkuli has pleaded with his opponents, including his elder brother, Julius to engage in decent politics and stop using propaganda.

Andrew said yesterday the tactics his opponents have resorted to are a clear indication that they have sensed defeat. He said it was not surprising to him that even his elder brother had earlier spread rumours that he had stepped down in his favour.

“I want to categorically state that the contest for Senate seat is not sibling rivalry but the contest of ideas and visions. It is the voters who will decide who they will vote for. I advise my brother to stop politics of blackmail and sell his policies to the voters,” said the younger Sunkuli.

Not to panic

Andrew added that at no time had he imagined to step down in favour of any other candidate, even his elder brother, whom he advised to sell his ideas and not to panic about his candidature. “I presented my nomination papers to the electoral commission last Friday and I have been cleared to run for Narok senatorial seat as an independent candidate,” said Andrew. Their father, Francis Sunkuli, recently endorsed Julius. Andrew advised him to stay out of the issue.
