"To the wonderful people of Elgeyo Marakwet County kongoi missing for your votes. Against the backdrop of all that transpired including the low voter turnout that magically evolved into an extraordinarily high one, I will simply say that my journey to the Senate is not over," she wrote.

The Elgeyo Marakwet Senate seat fell vacant following the appointment of Kipchumba Murkomen as the Cabinet Secretary for Roads, Transport and infrastructure by President William Ruto.
