Kipchumba Karori Erects Huge Billboard in Eldoret

Uasin Gishu Senate aspirant Oliver Kipchumba Karori has erected a huge billboard in Eldoret Central Business District (CBD) in a bid to popularize his bid.

Karori, a youthful lawyer is seeking to become the third Senator of Uasin Gishu County.

The current Senator Prof Margaret Kamar has not yet indicated whether she will be seeking re-election or not.

In the billboard strategically located at the Nandi Gardens, along the junction of Eldoret-Kapsabet road, Kipchumba Karori is wishing Uasin Gishu locals a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

He also uses the huge billboard that can easily be seen from as far as the Uganda road junction at Paradise, to make it known to the voters that he is in the Senate seat race.

Kipchumba Karori will be facing off among others Governor Jackson Mandago and broadcaster Robert Arap Kemei for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

He has already received the backing of a section of the Eldoret business community, who said they would rather support the youthful lawyer than Mandago, whom they accuse of harassing them.

Alongside Arap Kemei, Kipchumba Karori is also the preferred candidate for Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi who is opposed to Mandago’s Senate bid.

Sudi had a few weeks ago told the county boss to shelve his Senatorial bid in favor of the young aspirants, and instead focus on campaigning for Deputy President William Ruto, nationally.

Mandago has since dismissed the calls, insisting that it was his democratic right to vie for any seat.

He argues that having served as governor for two terms, he is best placed to push the devolution agenda at the Senate.

With Arap Kemei, Mandago, and Kipchumba Karori in the senate race, it will be a do-or-die contest for the UDA ticket in party primaries expected to be held before May 2022.
