Buzeki to Vie For Uasin Gishu Gubernatorial Seat as Independent Candidate

Billionaire businessman Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop alias Buzeki has announced that he will be vying for the Uasin Gishu gubernatorial seat as an independent candidate.

Buzeki is considered among the front runners for the seat.

In a post on his official Facebook page, the businessman-turned-politician said his decision to vie as an independent candidate was based on a need to free himself from party politics.

He, however, said he respects the political choices that the electorate in the county had made.

“I respect your political choices and freedom to affiliate with any political party,” Buzeki said in the post.

“On my part, I chose independent to free myself from the razzmatazz that are associated with party politics,” he added.

According to Buzeki, choosing to vie as an independent candidate will enable him to focus on serving the people.

He further noted that he is open to working with all leaders that will be elected alongside him.

“What will bind us will be nothing but the development agendas,” noted Buzeki.

But he called on the electorate to identify leaders based on their abilities and the plans they have for them.

August 9, 2022, will be the second time Buzeki will be vying for the Uasin Gishu gubernatorial seat.

He unsuccessfully vied for the seat in the 2017 general election.

Buzeki opted to vie for the seat as an independent candidate in 2017 after questioning the credibility of Jubilee party primaries.

Governor Jackson Mandago won the nominations, and would also beat the billionaire businessman to secure reelection.

Buzeki later joined Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) but fell out with party leader Isaac Rutto.

His latest announcement puts to an end speculations on the political vehicle he will be using when seeking to be the next Governor of Uasin Gishu County.
