Nandi: "Kakwo Gaa 2022" Locals Badly Heckle Governor Sang In front Dp Ruto, (Video)

Residents of Kapsabet town have embarrassed Nandi governor Stephen Sang after they heckled him in front of deputy president Dr William Ruto, by telling him off and saying "kakwo gaa 2022" which means in local dialect "he will be voted out in 2022".

This follows after Sang was given an opportunity by Dr Ruto to address locals who had gathered in Kapsabet town on Tuesday.

In a video that did rounds on Facebook, the residents were seen dismissing the governor with their hands and heard booing him as he attempted to address. The hecklers drown his speech until what he was saying could not be heard. This forced him to cut short his speech.

This comes as Sang faces criticism from a number of elected politicians and some residents for allegedly failing to provide good leadership in his government.

Members of Parliament including senator Samson Cherargei, Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills), Vincent Tuwei (Mosop), Julius Meli (Tindiret), Cornelli Serem (Aldai) and Wilson Kogo (Chesumei) have been critizing Sang for failing to fight corruption. They have been hanging out together in functions across the county, where they utilize every available opportunity to bash the governor and call on residents not to re-elect him in 2022 general election.

The ground for the county boss has been hostile since corruption scandals rocked department of education in his administration, where money and construction materials were pilfered.

The incumbent is facing stiff competition from his rivals who include the ex-director of NYS Japhter Kiplimo Rugut, Antipas Tirop (politician), veteran politician Henry Kosgei's son Allan Kosgei and former governor Dr Cleophas Lagat.
