Raymond Moi, A Rongai MP, Is Fighting A Hard Battle To Stop The UDA Wave Ahead Of August 9th Polls.

The Rongai constituency is unique not only in the diverse Nakuru County but also in the whole of Kenya.

Three Presidents have been elected from the agriculturally prosperous seat, which was split off from the then-Nakuru North electorate in 1988 and is now known as Subukia.

Two former presidents, Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel arap Moi, were born and raised in Rongai.

There are hints that President Kenyatta might go to their family farm in the Rongai constituency as he gets ready to leave the spotlight after the polls on August 9.

When Mzee Kenyatta wasn't hosting delegations at the Nakuru State House, he would spend nights at the vast Gicheha Farm, which is located a mile off the Nakuru-Eldoret route.


Gicheha Farm has seen a significant transition as a result of the First Family's significant investment, as shown by the rise in the number of farming operations during President Kenyatta's final term.

The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition includes the two parties.

The UDA's Paul "Mamba" Chebor, a former Solai ward representative, is thought to be Raymond's strongest rival.

Mr. Chebor is certain that he can undermine the Moi family's political hegemony in the area.

Moments after taking first place in the party primary elections, Mr. Chebor declared, "The Rongai race will not be determined by roadside popularity but by the voting box and I'm certain of winning the seat since Rongai locals are eager for a new dawn under UDA."
