Panic In UDA Camp After Independent Candidate For Parliamentarian Position Storm Ruto's Background

After Wakili Timothy Kipchumba Torotich, an independent candidate for the Marakwet West constituency, acquired widespread support, Deputy President William Ruto's UDA party was forced to rethink its strategy. 

Timothy had submitted his dissertation to the IEBC after being nominated by the UDA Party and losing to incumbent MP William Kipkemoi Kisang. 

Timothy chose Independent and was defeated by incumbent Xan by 546 votes. However, the UDA party was startled by the large amount of support it received once the Election Commission approved its candidacy.

The independent candidate was taken aback when photographs of the mob welcoming him to the west of the Marakwet people were posted on the internet.

Candidates seized the opportunity to thank his fans, promising that he would not disappoint them and that the voters would decide who their next MP would be.

"The IEBC granted me permission to run for Parliamentarian Position in Marakwet west on this day. I'd want to take this occasion to invite a large number of guests to Marakwetu's west. Thank you for being a member of the LapkeiTai Fraternity. Efforts to transform the Marakwet's west are unstoppable. "All glory to God," Timothy Kihumba stated. 


After receiving the UDA, it is forwarded to another drafting board, and all indications point to robust competition on the market.
