The lawmaker who ditched Kenya African National Union (KANU) camp for president Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president Dr William Ruto's camp in 2017 was heard helping the son of the former powerful cabinet minister Henry Kosgei in distributing money to locals at a shopping center in Mosop on Monday.
In a video that was circulating on Facebook on Tuesday, the legislator alias Jembe Nne was seen and heard calling on a crowd that had come to listen to them as they make their remarks by the roadside, on their way home after attending an event in the aforementioned constituency, to line up in a bid to receive handouts from Kosgei.
Further, Tuwei was heard castigating the incumbent governor Stephen Sang for engaging in graft and money laundering activities in office. He warned residents not to be dubbed by his tactics of bribery for them to reelect him in 2022. He alleged that Sang would steal public funds and use it to bribe them in 2022.
"This gentleman (Allan Kosgei) wants to give you something. Please, line up," Tuwei was heard speaking in Kalenjin dialect.
This follows after governor Sang came under fierce criticism from the elected Members of Parliament and the public in county for allegedly aiding and abetting corruption in his government. They have vowed to vote him out in 2022 over poor service delivery and graft.
The graft accusations against Sang's regime came to limelight after it was found out that the staff in the department of education had reportedly stolen the Early Childhood Educational Centers construction materials in 2019.
Other gubernatorial aspirants who would act as alternative choices for the MPs and residents in 2022 polls besides Allan Kosgei include the former National Youth Service Director Japhter Kiplimo Rugut and politician Atipas Tirop among others.
