He has declared his interest for the Uasin Gishu Senatorial seat which is currently being held by Senator Prof. Margaret Kamar who has not declared if she be defending her seat or not. 

Governor Mandago's Senatorial bid has been rubbished by the Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi, who has termed him not fit for the position but instead should wait to be appointed Cabinet Secretary in three deputy president William Ruto's government. 

"Because deputy president William be running for presidency CS slots will be few and other parts of the country who supported his bid needs to be considered. We will be selfish if we will not consider other parts of the Country,"added Uasin Gishu governor.
