Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has officially started his re-election campaigns ahead of UDA Party primaries expected to be held before April.
Sudi will be seeking the voters’ nod to serve them for a third term.
He first won the MP seat in 2013 as a then United Republican Party (URP) candidate, before winning re-election in 2017 on a Jubilee ticket.
Going into the August 9, 2022 poll, Oscar Sudi is hoping to be the one that will be flying the UDA ticket.
But before he gets the UDA ticket, he will have to face off other politicians that have expressed interest in the seat.
The vocal MP remains a favorite to clinch the UDA ticket, and eventually be reflected.
However, he will face stiff competition from among others, businessman Steve Kewa, former Eldoret South MP David Koros, and Francis Murgor, American-trained finance and biomedical expert.
In total, there are 5 aspirants seeking to replace Oscar Sudi.
But in a show of might, the MP started off his campaigns on Thursday, January 20, 2022, landing in style in Megun Ward, aboard a helicopter.
He interacted with locals from Ong’atta, Kibabet, and Chemina villages in the ward.
The MP is banking on his development record to get another term, to represent the people of Kapseret in the National Assembly.
His close links and being a fierce defender of Deputy President William Ruto, over the years, give him an upper hand in the race.
“We started this journey together back in 2013, we’ve made tremendous progress in terms of developing our constituency. We’ve expanded infrastructure in our schools, built our roads and churches. We’ve connected many households to electricity,” Oscar Sudi posted on his official Facebook page.
He notes that his target is to make Kapseret a dream constituency.
“We shall continue with such progressive agenda until we make Kapseret a dream Constituency,” he noted.
