Boinnet's appointment to the council is due to his wide knowledge in matters of security having served the country as the Inspector General of police.

His attempt to join politics failed when he was Defeated in the Elgeyo Marakwet United Democratic Alliance party gubernatorial nominations where Wisley Rotich emerged victorious.

After being beaten by the young Wisley who was the then deputy governor, the former Inspector General of police did not go ahead to vie as an Independent candidate neither did he cross to another party, instead he shelved his political ambitions and went silent.

The loyalty to the party has finally paid off after landing the lucrative job.
