Nandi residents have come out to express outrage after two sons of veteran politician Henry Kosgei declared interests in gubernatorial and senatorial seats in 2022 general election.
This follows after the locals lambasted Kosgei's family for allowing both of its children Allan Kosgei and Alex Kosgei to announce their bids for the county's top seats. Their main contention on the matter was that the family, whose father had been a key politician from the community, at the national level, should not have produced two children to run for the seat because they would be portraying the prospective leadership as a family affair.
The anger came after one of the siblings who is the current Emgwen Member of Parliament Alex Kosgei alleged that he would be gunning for the senatorial seat in 2022 polls. The information on the lawmaker's announcement was obtained from a video that is doing rounds on social media on Friday.
Rushing to comment on the issue, netizens, majority of whom were the county residents did not take it lying down. They wondered why the brothers had shamelessly decided to signal the public that they were ready to make county top leadership their clan matter.
This comes as the date for 2022 general election draws nearer each day. In Nandi county, the incumbent governor Stephen Sang is facing rivalry from his strong opponent Allan Kosgei. Sang has also earned himself disaffection from Members of Parliament from the county and the senator over accusations of graft and abuse of office in his (Stephen Sang) administration. They have vowed to sent him home in 2022 polls.
