Buzeki: Why I’M Vying as an Independent Candidate

Uasin Gishu gubernatorial candidate Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop (Buzeki) is among independent politicians from the North Rift region who have defied calls to drop their bids in favour of United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidates.

Buzeki taking a second stab at the coveted seat told off UDA leaders and Deputy President William Ruto, his running mate Rigathi Gachagua and other allies and supporters of the six-piece voting pattern saying the plan had been compromised.

The billionaire businessman while on a campaign trail in the county said he’s a performer and no amount of intimidation will make him opt out of the race.

I vied for this seat as an independent candidate because I am one person who has an elaborate plan that anchors on service delivery,” Buzeki said.

He further indicated that leadership is not about a political party but the agenda of a candidate.

Let it be on record that I don’t have hard feelings for any political party. But for so many years, we have not seen the benefits of political parties, but we have seen the service delivery of leaders who have the interests of the citizens at heart,” Buzeki said.

If elected, he promised to create job opportunities for thousands of youths in the county.

We have youths who have completed school. They have the energy to work, but there are no job opportunities and this is our time to give them hope by offering them job opportunities that will help eradicate poverty,” he added.

Buzeki is among three gubernatorial candidates seeking the support of 506,138 voters in the August 9 poll.

Others in the race are Jonathan Bii Chelilim, alias Koti Moja, a UDA candidate and United Democratic Movement’s Mwalimu William Kirwa.
