By Nikko Tanui | December 4th 2020 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300


Former Belgut MP Kiptarus Arap Kirior (pictured) has died in a  Nairobi hospital making him the third former MP from Kericho County to die in a span of two months. 

The former MP led the constituency from 1983 to 1988 and later from 1992 to 1997.

Governor Paul Chepkwony, in his messenger of condolence to the family, described the former legislator as an astute leader who had the interests of his constituents at heart. 

“This is demonstrated by his development record which spans decades later,” said Chepkwony. 

The governor added that besides the legislative role, the late  Kirior was a great farmer who agitated for various sugar industry reforms. 

“The work earned him leadership positions in the Kenya Sugar Board and the Kenya Sugar Growers Association,” said Chepkwony.

On October 17, another former Belgut MP Wesley Rono died after a short illness. The death was followed on November 12 by that of former Kipkelion MP the late William  Kikwai.
