Mandago Has Refused to Voluntarily Go Home, Retire Him Peacefully By Opposing His Senatorial Bid – Buzeki


Uasin Gishu gubernatorial candidate Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop Buzeki is now asking voters to reject outgoing governor Jackson Mandago’s senatorial bid.

Buzeki, eying to be Uasin Gishu’s second governor says Mandago, having served his two terms should be heading home.

The independent candidate claims the governor has refused to retire, and now wants voters to force him ‘to go home’.

Our Governor has finished his two terms, but he has refused to voluntarily go home. So, it’s now our responsibility as the people of Uasin Gishu to retire him peacefully by opposing his senatorial bid before we get into problems in the future,” said the billionaire businessman in a post on his verified Facebook page.

Mandago was first elected governor in 2013, and won re-election in 2017, narrowly edging out Buzeki.

And with the constitution not allowing him to seek a third term as a governor, the county boss has opted to go for the Senate seat.

He is vying for the seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

Mandago has only one competitor – broadcaster Robert Arap Kemei, in his bid to transition from an executive office to the legislative role.

Despite criticisms and opposition to his Senate bid, the governor has maintained that he is the right person to drive the devolution interests as the Uasin Gishu Senator.

We are the most experienced persons in implementing devolution,” Mandago told the press in Eldoret when he hosted Council of Governors chairman Mwangi wa Iria on June 28, 2022.

But even as Buzeki wants locals to reject Mandago, he is also asking voters to come out in large numbers and vote for him as the next governor.

He says the fight for better leaders is a collective one.

“What I believe we need to do to take over and run the County effectively is the ability to come out in large numbers on August 9 and vote for the Uongozi Ni Sera team. This is not an individual fight, and when we get into power, I will not work alone,” Buzeki said.

Buzeki is facing among others UDA’s Jonathan Bii Chelilim alias Koti Moja and Mwalimu William Kirwa of the United Democratic Movement (UDA).
