The call for a six-piece voting has turned out to be a nightmare to the two major presidential candidates, Dr William Ruto of Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Hon Raila Amolo Odinga of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition party.
In Bomet, a county of 376,985 total voters, it currently has three big politicians contesting for the governordhip seat and they are all in Dr Ruti-led Kenya Kwanza Coalition of parties.
The candidates are the incumbent governor Hillary Barchok who will be seeking re-election on a UDA ticket, former governor Isaac Ruto of Chama Cha Mashinani and Mr Bernard Mutai of ANC.
A Nairobi-based lawyer Mr Bett Sigey has told DP Ruto to be careful not to call for a UDA six-piece vote as this may make other staunch followers of the other two strong gubernatorial candidates to opt voting for other presidential candidates like Raila Odinga.
''Politically, Bomet is adifferent cup of tea for the DP and he has to tread carefully not to annoy either of the voting blocks. The best is to hit middle ground,'' Mr Sigey told Nation.
