Elgeyo Marakwet Deputy Governor Wesley Rotich, also present, asked the National Government to put more emphasis on the region’s development with Elgeyo Marakwet communities in peace-building missions.

Kerio Valley has for a long time been witnessing frequent insecurity fueled by cattle rustling, boundaries row, and fighting for resources such as water, pasture, and other natural resources.

Also present were Deputy Governor Nandi Dr. Yulita Cheruiyot, NOREB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Dominic Tanui, and other Government Officials.


Later at Catholic University, Gaba campus, in Eldoret town, Chemno challenged university graduates to use their education to solve the country’s socio-economic challenges.
