"Glad to have spent time today with 97-year-old Mzee Kikwai arap ng’eny alias Saisan and 87-year-old Paulina Chumo of Kapsinendet and later checked on 105-year-old Mzee Arap Tuei Laboso of Kapmabwai," he said.

The gubernatorial seat hopeful Issac Rutto also wished the elders a long life as they are the source of blessings in each and every community.
