Uasin Gishu gubernatorial aspirant Zedekiah Kiprop alias Buzeki has promised that his government, if elected governor, will be people-centered.
Buzeki is among over 10 aspirants that are eying to succeed Governor Jackson Mandago whose term is coming to an end.
In a post on his official Facebook page, the billionaire businessman is also asking voters to be keen on the kind of leaders they will be giving an opportunity to serve them.
He says there is a need for all the aspirants to be interrogated, and their plans evaluated.
“Political seasons will always come and go. Rallies, slogans, and their associated excitement are temporary and short-lived. As we indulge in the excitements, Kindly, let’s focus on the five-year mandate that you are handing over to us,” said Buzeki in the post.
“Please interrogate us deeply. Evaluate our plans in relation to your aspirations,” he added.
According to Buzeki, a Kenyan’s support for any politician should be based on anticipation of a positive and sustainable impact on their lives.
“Let your support to any of us yield some positive and sustainable impact to your lives. Don’t reward us with positions. Reward yourself by choosing the right leader to work with you in order to bring transformation,” he noted.
“Mimi nawaahidi kuwa an opportunity to serve you will be purely about you not me,” Buzeki further assured.
The billionaire businessman has already said he will be vying for the seat as an independent candidate.
This means he will face off with United Democratic Alliance (UDA) aspirants.
Among the aspirants seeking to get the UDA ticket include Soy MP Caleb Kositany, Kenyan Ambassador to Pakistan Prof Julius Bitok, Jonathan Bii, and former SRC chairperson Sarah Serem.
Others are Ng’enyilel MCA David Sing’oei, former Eldoret East MP Peris Simam, and Devolution CECM in Nairobi County Veska Kangogo.
