The first term law maker representing the residents of Konoin constituency within Bomet county in rift valley region Hon.Brighton Leonard Yegon has been criticised by his electorates for allegedly reducing himself into a blogger.

According to Hon.Brigton Yegon,the governor flagged an empty container to Iran goverment.
"Away from launching an empty container (lesebet 2) in Bomet,way from mouth watering hot air tea trade deal.Let me tag you serious comedy,hii Bomet sihami kabisa,wash wash," Brighton posted in his official facebook account.

His sentiments has attracted a lot of reaction,many discouraging his move of throwing a bombshell attack at his governor,some alluding that the duo are in different leagues.

"Instead of him seeking wisdom from county leadership he has shifted his "crocodiles tears" to blogging.The issue of social posting achia bloggers unless you have redeem yourself to," He concluded.
The vocal middle aged man was once a great supporter of Hon.Brighton Yegon but parted ways along the line,the member has been accused of using the youths and dumped them after achieving his ambition.
Mr.Kiprono Bett did also criticised the honarable member in his allegedily new move of blogging, according to Mr.Bett Konoin constituency is where tea farming is greatly depended on by the residents and the member was not supposed to criticised the governor's move of making sure that the farmer is benefiting from their hand work in tea farming.

"This is the worst it can happen.Had he forgotten the 300 million farmers he mentioned,?The chapter 36 chronicles? What had helped the farmers ? shame on HIM.," Bett posted.
However, Brighton Yegon's supporters came out and defended him,some claiming that their member of Parliament is at the liberty of criticising every move made by his governor since he was elected to represent them.
Mr.Ronnie Chirchir who hails from Michira village in Konoin constituency the same visinity where the said vibrant leader is coming from came out and challenged Yegon's critics to accompany their allegations with video clips.
Chirchir is has been a great supporter of the legislator since 2017 and his support has very steady.
"Accompany this with an audio humble request," Chirchir requested.
Mr.Wilberforce Biegon did also came to the rescue of his legislator, according to him,Yegon has been always standing with his electorates especially when it comes to the tea regulations , adding that Bomet governor Dr.Hillary Barchok should stop seeking mileage votes by exporting an empty consignment.
"Lenny Brighton has and always Stand with real reformist in the tea sector.Barchok and co.should stop trying to seek millage votes by exporting an empty consignment," part of his post reads.
Yegon has already declared that he will defend his seat comes 2022, however his ambition of retaining his seat has attracted a lot of challenges including the Embomos ward representative Hon.Robert Serbai who has been criticising him of not delivering to the expectation of his electorates.
