Ainabkoi MP William Chepkut Finally Out Of Hospital


Ainabkoi Member of Parliament William Chepkut has finally been discharged from hospital.

Chepkut has been in hospital for the past over three months, receiving treatment, following an accident that led to injuries on his legs.

For the months that the legislator has been in hospital, he has received multiple leaders who visited him, to wish him well and quick recovery.

Among those that visited Chepkut while admitted at a Nairobi hospital include Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi, billionaire businessman Zedekiah Kiprop, and most recently teachers and Kaptagat Member of County Assembly Jonathan Ng’etich, accompanied by Uasin Gishu gubernatorial aspirant Vescah Kangogo who held prayers for the MP.

To announce his return to the social circles where he has been known for freely mingling with locals, the witty and humourous first-term legislator attended several events among them a wedding.

“Back to my feet,” Chepkut said in one of the posts on his verified Twitter handle.

“On the sidelines of wedding with my friend Prof. Phylis Jerono,” added the MP in another tweet.

In both tweets, Chepkut is pictured in a three-piece blue suit, as he poses for the photos with friends during the wedding, though he still needs support to stand.

Chepkut won the Ainabkoi MP seat in 2017 as an independent candidate, after beating the incumbent Samuel Chepkonga.

He is hoping to retain his seat in the upcoming general elections.

Chepkut has not yet publicly declared which political vehicle he will be using to seek re-election, although it is widely expected that he will eventually join the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) – which is arguably the most popular party right now in Uasin Gishu.

His re-election bid will however face stiff competition from among others, Chapkonga, the former MP, Terry Maina, Dr. Mark Korir all seeking UDA ticket for the seat, and William Cheraisi of the National Vision Party (NVP).
