Former Police Inspector General Boinet Intensifies Campaigns in Murkomen's Backyard (Video)

Former Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinet has intensified his campaigns to succeed incumbent Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Engineer Alex Tolgos.

Boinet, who exited police service in March 2019 after his four-year term came to an end was appointed by President Uhuru to the position of Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife where he is still serving.

However, the soft-spoken former police boss is keen on succeeding Tolgos and has embarked on massive campaigns in the Elgeyo Marakwet region.

Speaking on Monday in Marakwet West, Boinet urged the residents to elect him to come 2022, saying he has the key experience, especially in the tourism sector, adding that he will help in ensuring that the rich tourism country becomes one of the leading tourist destinations come 2022.

"Comrades power EMC...we have just proved we have enough resources to attract tourists in our county and if tapped properly, this can give us enough money and we are looking forward to developing them" he stated.

Boinet will be competing with former Keiyo South MP and KVDA chairman Jackson Kiptanui alongside the county's Deputy Governor Wesley Rotich for UDA Party tickets during nominations.

It is not yet clear whether former Judiciary CS Henry Rotich will also be in the race after recently hinting at the same.
