Even as IEBC Commissioner Roselyn Akombe’s resignation today seven days to poll threw the country into disarray of sorts, Nandi County residents are upbeat in expressing their happiness to welcome the president in the expected visit to the region tomorrow. Jubilee’s heightened campaigns across the country in which major opposition leaders have defected and joined now targets Western and Northern part of Kenya.
A contingent of GSU officers have this evening landed in a chopper at Nandi Hills stadium to inspect the areas where the president Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto will make stop-overs to address the residents.
Uhuru and Ruto are seeking re-election on 26th October repeat polls after the Supreme Court nullified their August 8th victory on September 1st. Heads of State are expected to join local leaders including Nandi County governor Stephen Sang, Senator Kiprotich Cherargey, Nandi Hills MCA Gideon Koech among others.
In the county’s most historic town that carry the glory and glamour of Kalenjin leader Koitaleel Arap Samoei, whose graveyard and mausoleum is located few meters from Nandi Hills CBD, Uhuru will be stepping on the ground for the second time since being sworn in as Kenya’s fourth president.
Apart from voting support, Uhuru and Ruto are supposed to address Koitalel Samoei University which is now closed. Ruto had earlier in the year before August elections while visiting Kaplelmet Primary, promised that the University project would begin construction before the end of 2017. President Uhuru Kenyatta followed suit and laid a foundation stone on July 8, 2017.
