With just five days remaining to the anticipated United Democratic Alliance Party primaries, aspirants have been staging several campaigns to woo the electorate before the day. Who have you decided to vote for? After rigorous toiling and moiling, one must be declared the winner to contest with alot of confidence come August 9 polls.
In County 27, Uasin Gishu County, another fierce confrontation is in the offing. Incumbent Woman Representative Gladys Boss Shollei will be defending her seat using the popular Deputy President Ruto's United Democratic Alliance Party. She will face 2017 runners up Chebichi Rael who has been staging her campaigns since 2020. Bearing in mind that she came second to Boss Shollei ahead of Ruth Kemboi Maraba, she is seen to come out victorious.
Another newbie to the corridors of elective politics is Hellen Jeptoo Ruto. Who will you think will win? Infact Chebichi will give Shollei a huge run for her money since she has met with most villagers in the vast County.
The five constituencies that made up the vast Uasin Gishu County with a registered voters of 700,000. In Turbo and Soy Constituencies where Chebichi is well known, she will obviously be leading there. In Kesses, Ainabkoi,Kapseret and Moiben constituencies, they voted vehemently for Boss Shollei only to be disappointed by the lawmaker. She rarely visits the electorate moreso Women Groups alias"Chamas" to assist them solve their issues. She disappeared into the thin air as said by many women in Kimumu last week.
This means that she may face difficult times infact she may even come third if matters goes this way to the party primaries. What do you think might have led to Gladys Shollei's fall in terms of winning women hearts? Share and comment.
