As the much awaited August 2022 general elections nears, governors who are serving their second and final terms are stranded on which way to go to make sure that their political dreams remain shining.
One of the second term governors who is struggling to remain relevant past 2022 is Ruto's Uasin Gishu backyard Governor Jackson Mandago. Mandago recently declared that he will be running for the Uasin Gishu senate seat in a hot race to beat professor Margaret Kamar.
Unfortunately, the Governor may face difficulties in his quest to become senator after a section of residents expressed their displeasure and discomfort in his decision to go for the senate seat.
Giving out there opinions in a video whose link is shared below, some locals argued that Mandago is demoting himself to a lesser position. Some felt that it high time that the governor should man up, gather his remaining strengths and throw his weight on DP Ruto's 2022 presidential bid. "Amalize aende Juu," they argued.
Those who opined on the matter predicted that of he backs the DP without running for any other position, the he will be appointed the cabinet secretary for Agriculture by the DP due to his background. By this, they argued that he will still nicely serve Uasin Gishu farmers but from a higer position.
Some of DP Ruto's staunch supporters argued that if Mandago decides to for the Senate seat, it will mean that he is not confident that Ruto will win 2022's top prize.
