Kenta receive backing from the Kipsigis community

Narok North Member of Parliament (MP), Moitalel Ole Kenta, has received a major boost, after a portion of Kipsigis leaders pledged to support his gubernatorial bid.

Kenta who is vying on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket received a warm welcome at Emurua Dikirr Constituency, which is dominated by the Kipsigis community, where he held a political rally, attended by several leaders from the community.

Led by former Narok County Executive Member-In-Charge of Agriculture, Richard Birir, the community vowed to back Kenta because of his development record.

“We are confident that Kenta will grow the economy of our county. That is why I urge the members of my community to support him,” he said.

Kenta on his part blamed his rival Patrick Ntutu’s family for deceiving the Kipsigis community to sell them 18, 000 acres of the Mau Forest land that they were later evicted from by the government.

Kenta wondered why the family has not reimbursed the money they took from innocent people, even after the government evicted them from the forest.

“If the land was genuine, the Deputy President, William Ruto and Governor Samuel Tunai, would not allow the people to be evicted. When you elect me as your governor, I will make sure all those who sold you the land, return back the money you gave them,” said Kenta.

The aspiring governor pledged to remove all ghost workers in the county, saying over 4, 000 ghost workers were working in the county.

“Some people are spreading rumours that I want to remove the Kipsigis community from the county jobs,  that is a pure lie. What I want is to remove ghost workers, so that I can create job opportunities for all the residents of Narok County,” he reiterated.

The second term MP observed that his Constituency, despite being highly cosmopolitan, has enjoyed peace and cohesion for the time he has been in office.

“No one has ever shed blood in my Constituency since I got in office or evicted from their homes. Those alleging that I will cause chaos if elected do not have an agenda for this county,” he said.

Youth Principal Secretary (PS), Charles Sunkuli, who accompanied Kenta said he dropped his gubernatorial ambitions to support Kenta because of his development record.

He expressed confidence that Kenta will win the gubernatorial position in the coming general election. Kenta will be facing off against UDA’s Patrick Ntutu.

Narok County has 398, 700 registered voters where majority are from the Maasai community seconded by the Kipsigis community.
