UDA candidate speaks after failing to clinch the UDA ticket in Elgeiyo Marakwet

Jerotich Seii, an active citizen, was unsuccessful in her effort to run for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party nomination for the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator seat.

Seii received 8,540 votes in the party primaries conducted on November 26 and finished fourth.

Tim Kipchumba and Jonah Tanui tied for second place with 26,766 votes, while William Kisang took first place with 28,136 votes.

Seii stated in a tweet on Sunday that the loss in the UDA polls had not darkened her path to the Senate.

“To the wonderful people of Elgeyo Marakwet County, thank you for your votes. Against the backdrop of all that transpired including low voter turnout that magically evolved into an extraordinarily high one, I will simply say that my journey to the Senate is not over,” she wrote.

Seii, who is also a consultant for humanitarian and development concerns, previously stated that one of her goals in running for office was to seek for direct legislative interventions on matters that concern Kenyans.
