Buzeki's candidature a thorn in Governor Mandago's flesh

By Gideon Kiprop | January 10th 2017 at 11:14:09 GMT +0300

On Monday during the burial of Former Nominated MP Mark Too Kanu Chairman, who is also the Baringo Senator Gideon Moi dropped a bombshell on Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago's doorstep.

Senator Moi warned Mandago that some powerful forces, he didn't name, have sponsored Buzeki Group of companies boss, Kiprotich Bundotich, to battle him for the top county seat.

"Mandago ngalen kinai ile achamin komie. Lakini koinai is ile koking'etun chito nekilen Buzeki. Anan Tomo inai?" which loosely translates to "Mandago you know I like you, but you must know that some people have sponsored Buzeki to battle you for the governorship," Senator Moi said.

The junior Moi may have unknowingly confirmed rumors by a section of residents that some powerful forces are behind the candidature of Mr. Bundotich, but the question is who are these powerful forces?

Governor Mandago, has been lukewarm in his loyalty and support to Deputy President William Ruto and political observers opine that this may be the cause of his political troubles.

Already, the entry of the multimillionaire businessman is giving the incumbent sleepless nights and is seen as a front-runner in the race because of his perceived political connections to the powers that be.
