With few months remaining before the next general polls in August 2022, Kesses Member of Parliament Dr. Swarup Mishra alias Mishra Kiprop Arap Chelule has come out to speak about the party that he will be using to seek re-election.
He has already come under intense criticism from Ruto allies in Uasin Gishu led by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, who has vowed to campaign against Mishra in Kesses for allegedly dining with Ruto's competitors.
And while empowering youths from his constituency on Tuesday, Mishra waded into 2022 politics, saying he is not allied to any political party in the country at the moment.
Mishra, who is serving in Parliament for the first time revealed that he is not interested in being in any political party as his interest is service to the people of Kesses.
“You should know me and know my style of leadership. My style is not talking too much without actions. I talk a few words and leave then act,” stated Dr. Mishra.
Without endorsing any particular presidential candidate, Mishra urged his constituents to elect a candidate of their choice, adding that he will not advise them. He added that his party is the people of Kesses and Kalenjin nation at large and that he is not planning to join any soon.
"In 2022, I won’t tell you who to vote for, you know the person that best suits you for all those positions. For me, I don’t have any party, my party is Kesses and my party is Kalenjin. I don’t want to be in any party, my party is work,” the legislator added
While many leaders in the Rift Valley region have publicly associated themselves with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Mishra has remained a strong supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ruling Jubilee party, something that has not gone down well with most of Ruto supporters.
He was speaking when he delivered 30 motorbikes to Chereber, Cherus, Kaptingia, Kapilat, and Lainguse bodaboda operators in Kesses Constituency, Uasin Gishu county
